Carol Ann Silvester

January 9, 1938 — February 10, 2021

. Carol Ann Eichel Silvester, age 83, passed away at St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center in the early morning hours on February 10, 2021. She was born January 9, 1938 in Los Angeles, California to Earl Harold Eichel and Arlene Alice Peterson Eichel. She was the first of three daughters, followed by Linda Mae Eichel Nessen, and Rosalie Alice Eichel Yoder. One of her favorite childhood memories that she loved to share with her posterity is how she was recruited by talent scouts for the role that Shirley Temple ultimately played, (as she was such an adorable little girl with bouncy ringlets), but her mom and dad turned it down for personal reasons. Carol married her high school (stud muffin) sweetheart Shirrel E. Silvester on November 16, 1956 in Box Elder County, Utah. They were later sealed in the Logan temple. There were eight children born into this union. Carol & Shirrel were married for 64 years. Most of that time was spent living in Twin Falls, Idaho on the 400 acre farm that they purchased in 1970. Carol was a devoted and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served in any capacity she was called to until her health declined in her later years. She always encouraged all her children to stay actively involved in the gospel and was proud of them for their devotion to their Heavenly Father. My mother had many hobbies. Having been a homemaker for the majority of her married life, she spent a lot of hours teaching her children how to garden, harvest and preserve almost everything that was grown. She loved playing the piano, and enjoyed taking tole painting classes. She loved crafting and tying quilts. Most every winter, she’d get out the quilting frames and we’d make 5 or 6 new quilts for people. She loved Christmas and nativities. She collected nativities for the last 20 years of her life, and had quite an extensive array of nativities from all over the world, but her yearly family Christmas caroling party was the highlight of her holiday season. She absolutely loved family reunions and spending time with her family. Each new addition was always so highly anticipated, welcomed and loved fiercely. We have so many beautiful memories to hang on to and cherish. Carol had thirty grandchildren, (preceded in death by four), thirty-two great grandchildren, and one great- great grandchild on the way. She is survived by her husband Shirrel, children: Bryan Silvester (Molly), Curtis Silvester (Theresa Ann), Shirlene Egbert (Ken – deceased), Carlene Bowers (Dale), Susan Flores, Tresa Hansen (Curtis), and Amy Beloved, and her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her mother Arlene, father Earl, step-father Raymond, sisters Linda and Rosalie, son Steven, son-in-law Ken, and grandchildren Preston, Mark, Cameron, and Michael. We are grateful for the knowledge of eternal families and know we will see the matriarch of our family again soon. Our family will be lost without her, but we are happy that she is having a beautiful reunion in heaven with all those who were there to greet her. We love you more than words can express Mom!
