Carol Toronto Davis March 5, 1939 – January 14, 2010 Carol Toronto Davis of Salt Lake City, Utah, living the last three years in Pleasant View, Utah, died on January 14, 2010, surrounded by family. Carol was born on March 5, 1939, in Prague, Czechoslovakia, to the late Wallace and Martha Toronto who were serving as mission president and mission mother for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Carol spent much of her childhood in Prague, where she attended Czech schools and became fluent in Czech. After the Toronto family moved back to Salt Lake City, Carol participated in school and church plays and musicals. Carol also fell in love with classical music at a young age and was trained as an opera singer. After graduating from South High School, Carol was married to Eugene H. Davis on June 24, 1957 and is survived by him and eleven children: Jefferson (Janet), Halston (Lorraine), Benjamin (Janet), Andrea, Elizabeth Leishman (Brian), Wallace, Virginia Wood (Stephen), Lydia Free (Kyle), Carol Zimmerman (Craig), Charlotte, and Reagan. Carol was preceded in death by her infant children Milton and Emily. Carol and Gene have 49 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brothers and sisters, Marion Miller, Robert Toronto, Judith Richards, Allen Toronto, and David Toronto. Carol will be remembered as a clever author, an amazing story teller, artist, singer, primary chorister, and of course, for her “The Chocolate Cake Song”. Carol loved children. She could socialize with anyone and had an innate talent for being interested in others and for making anyone feel like the most special person in the world. Those who knew Carol most will always remember her passion for fashion, her witty sense of humor, and the way she fed anyone that came to her home. Along with her wheat bread recipe and her musical gifts, Carol passed down to her children the belief that one should take their best to family, church, or community functions. Carol will be remembered for her love and devotion as wife, mother, and grandmother, her love for her Heavenly Father and for the Savior, Jesus Christ, and for her example and teaching of truth that leads to enduring happiness. Viewings will be held Thursday, January 21st from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, at Myers Mortuary, 845 Washington Blvd., Ogden, Utah; Friday, January 22nd , from 6:00 to 8;00 pm, and Saturday, January 23rd, from 9:30 to 10:45 am at the Salt Lake Butler Stake building, 7035 Nutree Drive (3325 East), Cottonwood Heights, Utah. Funeral services will be Saturday, January 23rd, 11:00 am at the Salt Lake Butler Stake building. Interment will be at the Ben Lomond Cemetery, 526 East 2850 No., North Ogden.
