Carol Lee Call

May 9, 1939 ~ June 29, 2023 (age 84) 84 Years Old


Carol Lee Call, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and sister, peacefully passed away on June 29, 2023, in Orange, California. She was born on May 9, 1939, in Dinuba, California, to Walter Scott Williams and Harriet Ruth Smith. Growing up in Garden Grove, California, Carol graduated from Garden Grove High School and went on to earn an associate degree in psychology from Cypress College.

Carol is survived by her three devoted sons: Lynn (Gail) of Santa Ana, Mark (Brenda) of Fremont, and David (Debbie) of Livermore. She leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth in the hearts of her cherished grandchildren: Roger, Jacquelyn Stege (Patrick), Adrienne, Blaine, Brandon, Adeline, and Christina. Carol was also blessed with the companionship of her sisters, Marjorie Peixoto and Nancy Perry.

As a dedicated homemaker, Carol's love for her family knew no bounds. She learned American Sign Language to ensure effective communication with her children and grandchildren, fostering a deep and meaningful family bond. Carol's commitment to the well-being of others extended beyond her immediate family as she spent over 25 years as a den leader for the Boy Scouts of America in Anaheim. Her unconditional love was expressed through her constant words of affection to all her loved ones: "I love you bigger and better."

Carol's beloved husband, Joel Nield Call, preceded her in death on November 11, 2019, in Orange, California. Born on February 9, 1936, in Afton, Wyoming, to Ellen Jane Nield and Edgar Allen Call, Joel was raised in Afton and graduated from Star Valley High School. He attained the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout with three Palms, a distinction that inspired their three sons to follow in his footsteps, as well as two of their grandchildren. Joel had a passion for the great outdoors, relishing in the beauty of Wyoming's mountains as he rode his ATV during the summer months and shared memorable ski trips with his family. He was also gifted in carpentry and adorned their home with his skillful craftsmanship.

Joel and Carol's love story began when they met while Carol lived across the street from Joel's brother's house. On June 22, 1957, they exchanged vows and embarked on a journey together, which lead to celebrating their remarkable 62nd anniversary. Joel enjoyed a fulfilling 40-year career as a district manager at Sav-On Drugs before embracing retirement. Together, Joel and Carol discovered the joy of RV travel, exploring new horizons as avid adventurers. They were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Carol will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband, Joel, at the Afton Cemetery on July 13,2023 at 11:00am; as they reunite for eternity. Her memory will forever be cherished by her family and friends, who have been touched by her love, kindness, and unwavering devotion.
