Flora Luthy Carson, age 90, passed away Monday, Oct. 17. She was born in Logan, Utah, to August and Frieda Luthy on November 20, 1925, and married J. David Carson on Oct. 25, 1958, in the St. George temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Flora and David raised six children in Logan, Utah, and Stockton, California, where they moved in 1964. At home she served as a full-time wife and mother, encouraging her children in school, various activities and especially piano lessons for all six of them. In addition to being an excellent seamstress (making most of her daughters’ clothing) and an outstanding cook, she enjoyed reading, taught herself to play the piano and became talented in oil and water color painting.
In addition to family responsibilities, she served in many church callings, including several Relief Society presidencies. After their children were grown, David and Flora retired in Mapleton, Utah, and eventually moved to St. George. They were ordinance workers in four LDS Temples, and served two LDS mission, in Germany and Switzerland.
Daughters, Anita Kelley and Jill Medlyn preceded her in death.
She is survived by her children: David, Jann, Kathi and Kristi Carson; and siblings Betty Cressall, Melvin Luthy, David Luthy, Linda Forsberg and Howard Luthy.
