Carolyn Bigler Gubler, beloved eternal companion, mother and grandmother peacefully returned to her heavenly home Dec. 17, 2018, watched over by her husband and family.  

She was born March 24, 1936, in Nephi, Utah, the youngest of two daughters born to Mark Lisle and Artemisha Nielson Bigler. Her early years were spent in Nephi. At the age of 10, she moved with her family to Washington, Utah, and lived in her great-grandfather Peter Neilson Sr.’s home. Many wonderful memories of her childhood were created with her family in Nephi and Washington.

On June 5, 1953, she married the love of her life, Wickley Darrel Gubler, in the St. George, Utah, Temple. They moved to and lived 37 years in Las Vegas, Nevada, where they were blessed with five wonderful children.

Mom had a deep love for her family and was happiest with her family and friends gathered close. Good food, kindness and laughs could be found wherever mom was.

Serving others was something that occupied her time and thoughts. She led her life as a true example of the savior, always treated others with unconditional love and acceptance. A faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served in many capacities. Many lifelong friendships were gained while serving in the Stake Relief Society, Primary presidency, camp director, bishop storehouse, chorister and various other callings.

She is survived by her husband Darrel Gubler; children Brent (Nancy) Gubler, Gaye (Mike) Borden, Mark (Dawna) Gubler, Darin (Karen) Gubler, Kristen (Robert) Tanner; 18 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
