Carol Jean (Warburton) Truex

June 2, 1944 ~ March 7, 2019 (age 74)

Carol Jean Warburton Truex, 74, passed away unexpectedly on March 7, 2019.  She was born June 2, 1944 to Gerald and Lola Florine Warburton. She was the second of four daughters. She was raised in Pine Canyon where she learned how to milk the cow and chop the wood.  She attended Tooele High School where she was a member of the marching band. Carol enjoyed camping on the banks of Fish Lake with her family.

Carol married Harry Kent Truex on April 19, 1963.  They were blessed with four sons, Steven (Susan) of Logan, Jerry (Dawn) of Roy, Keith (Ashley) of Layton, and Leslie (Heather) of Layton. She was the grandmother to sixteen and great-grandmother to eleven.

Carol was a military wife and homemaker. She persevered as their family was transferred from place to place.  Her children became her pride and joy. She also raised a grandchild. Carol loved her John Wayne movies and watching professional bull riding and cheering on her favorite cowboy.

She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, three sisters Linda, Jane, and Geraldine and one great-grandson, Zayden. Funeral services will be held Friday, March 15, 2019 at 11:00 AM at the church house located at 196 N Pine Hurst Ave, Tooele, UT.  Friends may visit with family prior to the service from 9-10:30 AM. Interment will be at the Tooele Cemetery.

We'd like the thank the Tooele police officers and all others that attended to Carol in her final moments.
