Holladay, UT-Our beloved Carol passed away Wednesday, January 29th, surrounded by loving family members. Known to family and friends as "Daw", she spent her life raising children - her children, their children and countless others. She demonstrated a loving attitude that affirmed each person she met and taught them through her actions that every person is special and valuable. She lived her life with unbounded optimism that things would be fine, even during difficult and impossible times.
Her optimism and kindness paved the way throughout her life. She struggled with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease throughout much of her life, but did not let this illness stop her from being active in her family's lives and making friends everywhere that she went.
Carol married the ever handsome William Kenly Duncan in 1953. Carol is the loving mother to Debra Lee Record, William Wesley Duncan and Caroline Ruth Ricks and an adoring grandmother to 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Kenly died at an early age in 1965. Soon after starting their family, Daw was the sole provider for herself and her three young children.
Carol was born to Ruth Webster and Wesley Blaine Little, living in the avenues of Salt Lake City. She was the youngest child with two sisters, Betty Ruth Little Mooy and Mary Belle Little Miles and two brothers Wesley Blaine Little, Jr. and Robert Cecil Little.
Carol has a strong love and testimony of the Savior. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She lived a life full of love and charity.
Carol prepared food for several restaurants including the Willow Creek Country Club. She also worked as a bookkeeper for Johnson Construction. Her greatest vocation was raising her children and scores of others in her own home. For them and many others, she will always be our "Daw."
Carol's family members would like to thank the caregivers at Coventry Assisted Living in Cottonwood Heights and Spring Creek Healthcare Center in Holladay for their dedication, care and compassion.
Funeral Services will be held Monday, February 3rd at 11:00 a.m. at the Holladay Cottonwood Mortuary at 4670 S Highland Drive in Holladay, Utah. Friends and family may visit Sunday evening from 6-8 p.m., and one hour prior to services on Monday at the same location. Carol will be buried next to her husband in the Centerville Cemetery.

I have to tell you a VERY special story about how AncientFaces helped to reunite our family. For 13 years, I have been searching for my grandmother's missing sister. She just disappeared from the family in the 1930s without a trace. No one ever knew where or when she died or where she was buried. My years of searching have just run into dead ends, so I had given up. Today, out-of-the-blue, a young lady called me and said that she had seen a photograph on AncientFaces and one of the women in the photo was her grandmother! Little did I know that she had left a small child behind when she died so young of TB. You can imagine our shock and excitement at finding each other and a whole new family that we never knew existed. We only live one state away from each other and very soon plan to have all family members meet to share our sides of "the story" and of course, many, many more picturesl AncientFaces...... without you, this family may never have been complete and Aunt Grace would have been lost to us forever. I hope you realize what a valuable service you provide and how grateful we are to have found you. Thank you!!!! -Lynda B.
I never knew my biological family. My family is my mother and father who raised me. But, as I got older I got curious about my heritage. It took me years of investigation to finally discover my parents’ names. Well, I get goosebumps just writing this, I have found my biological family because of AncientFaces. Yes!! I did a search for my [parents' names] and was shocked to find a photo of them on AncientFaces! I cannot tell you the feeling that came over me when I saw this photo - to see the faces of my biological parents…JUST LIKE THAT. I left a comment on the photo and you won’t believe this - the owner of the photo is MY SISTER!!! Yes, I have a LITTLE sister! It turns out my parents were too young when they had me and had to give me up. My little sister knew I existed and wanted to find me but had no way of doing it. Thanks to you I am meeting my little sister for the first time next month. GOD BLESS YOU ANCIENTFACES. -Anonymous
We have found our missing relative entirely thanks to AncientFaces. We have received a much clearer photo of Captain Grant from his Son. The picture we on AncientFaces is an old yellowed newspaper photo. I am attaching the new photo and ask that you take the old one out and put the new clear picture in its place. With our Canadian Remembrance Day here in 2 days - the timing could not be better. Thank You, AncientFaces. My long lost Aunt is now 86 years old and her Son and I are talking by phone and e-mails. Captain Grant was his Father and died in France in 1944 and is buried there. By posting pictures of the visit to his gravesite - we connected through one of his brothers. Amazing that our prayers have been answered. Thank you -Beth B.
I came home for lunch yesterday and decided to look at my email before going back to work. The weekly newsletter that I subscribe to from the Logan Family History Center had this message in it about AncientFaces. I clicked on the link and the first search I did was for Woodruff, and Mamie was the first picture that came up. I could hardly stand it. I was late getting back to work. I had to add comments and write to you. Thank you for noticing her in the store and for the website. I can't help but wonder how many other family pictures may have ended up in that store and why. I also can't help but feel that it was meant to be and that there is a purpose that this picture is coming home as you say. What are the chances of this all just happening? It's amazing that you even picked it up at the store and then went to all the extra effort to post it. It makes me feel as though you have been my friend forever. It certainly has given me a connection to you, and I have a love for what you do. I just can't tell you how excited I am. I can't even hold it in. -Cathy K., Utah
I have previously submitted several pictures of my grandfather August Zemidat. I have tried for many years to find anyone with that name, and I have searched many genealogy web sites to no avail. Recently I was contacted by someone who saw my pictures on AncientFaces who may well be a cousin. She also provided me with information that seems to indicate her grandparents were my grandfather’s siblings. Considering the many years I have been searching for the name Zemidat, I find this is absolutely amazing that I have finally found a family member. Thank you AncientFaces -Ron D.
I love AncientFaces, a while back I saw that you had labeled Garcia surname pictures. At the time I didn’t have all my family facts for my research. Anyway, I wandered into your site just to check it out AND NOW 1 YEAR LATER I received a picture from an 87 year old aunt and guess what you had this very same picture on your site!! (They were my great aunts and my great-grandmother!). Thank you… -Angela M.
I have loved AncientFaces since I first found it, it's the first thing I check when I turn on the computer. There was a time when even in the most modest households there were three cherished possessions, a family Bible. a family album and a fancy lamp. It was usual for the family to gather in the parlour, generally on Sunday and talk, tell stories of family and friends with the photos in the albums as illustration. Sadly in our modern electronic age we have fallen away from the oral tradition and interest in history has waned. I was quite shocked on the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic to see so many comments from younger people who were surprised to learn that the Titanic wasn't just a movie. This is why AncientFaces is so important, to me it's the electronic age version of the oral tradition on a global scale and the sheer volume of people who follow, comment and contribute seems to prove the point. We are all grateful to you all for providing us with this wonderful site. - Arba M.
