Ellen Calderwood

June 5, 1931 — January 6, 2020

West Jordan

On Monday, January 6, 2020, Ellen Marie Carroll Calderwood, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, passed away peacefully surrounded by family.

Ellen was born June 5, 1931, in Hammond, Indiana to Samuel Edward Carroll and Mary LaMar Cloward Carroll. After waiting for Bob Earl Calderwood to return from serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she married him on May 18, 1951 in the Salt Lake Temple. Ellen graduated from Morgan High School and received her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Weber State University. Ellen’s teaching assignment was at West Weber Elementary. She was known for her beautiful and classically trained voice and was often found singing around the house or performing in church. Ellen served three missions with her husband: one proselyting mission to the Caribbean, a temple mission in Washington D.C. and a temple mission in Nauvoo, Illinois. Upon returning from Nauvoo she served 15 years in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple for a total of 25 years of service. While she had many pursuits and passions, her real vocation was as a mother and homemaker. Family was at the heart of her life.

Ellen is survived by her husband Bob, her daughters Christine Calderwood, Kathleen (Kim) Carling, Carol Foster and Kathy Evans; her sons Craig (Pat) Calderwood, Kerry (Pixie) Calderwood and Kevin (Sydnee) Calderwood; 36 grandchildren, 82 great- grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. She was preceded in death by a grandson, Connor Calderwood.

Her funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2020, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 673 East 300 North, American Fork, Utah 84003.  Viewing will be from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. Funeral service will start at 10:00 a.m. Burial will be at the Coalville City Cemetery.
