Our mother, Charolette P. Karr, passed away at Pinnacle Nursing Home and Care Center. Cremation has taken place with services to be held at a later date.
Charolette was born Dec. 8, 1919 to Lloyd E. and Charmaine Perigo. She was a lifelong resident of Carbon County. Charolette graduated from Carbon High School and was the first female to enroll in Carbon College. She worked in retail sales, mostly in clothing sales.
Charolette married Cox B. Christenen. They later divorced. She then married Jerry Karr, but they were later divorced.
Our mother was a strong, loving, kind and very generous Lady, with a great personality and a terrific sense of humor, which she retained to the very end. Charolette loved and cared for many people in her life, and always had a soft spot in her heart for all animals.
Charolette is survived by her son, Max and Lori Christensen of Grand Junction, Colo; six granddaughters; and nine great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Lloyd, Jr.; and her son, Kelly Cox Christensen.
Our family would like to thank the staff at Pinnacle Nursing Home and Care Center for all the wonderful care and love you gave our mom, and for the kindness you showed our family. You are all very special people.
We will always love you and miss you, mom. God speed Charolette; you are truly a Grand Tiger.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Utah Humane Society in Charolette Karr's name.

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
