Carla Lani Cannon, born October 29, 1945, passed away on February 17, 2011 in South Jordan, Utah from a brain tumor.

Born the second of six children to D. James and Elaine A. Cannon, in Salt Lake City, Utah, she was preceded in death by her parents; brother James Q. Cannon and his first wife Christine Jacobsen Cannon; sister Christine Cannon; and brother Anthony Joseph Cannon. Survived by sisters, Susan Cannon McOmber (Bryant) Palo Alto, CA, and Holly Cannon Metcalf (Richard) Seattle, WA, sisters-in-law Rebecca Cannon and Kathy Cannon Anderson, as well as dozens of adoring nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Carla grew up in Salt Lake City, and was a graduate of Highland High and the University of Utah. Equipped with an education and innate abilities, Carla lived and worked in many places, including working for several congressmen, Sunset Magazine and Lane Publishing. Most recently, Carla lived at 4370 South Laurel Green Drive in St. George, Utah. Carla served seven years in U.S. Navy Reserves, Intelligence Center of the Pacific.

As a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Carla dedicated thousands of hours to genealogical research and served as a French name extraction missionary. She loved working in the Primary.

As oldest sister, Carla organized a sisters' quartet and taught them to harmonize. She was also part of a popular singing group called the Hi-Notes. Recently, Carla fulfilled a life-long dream of writing text for a hymn which she paired with a Chopin etude. As the "Favorite Aunt and Cousin", Carla's stories have delighted many. A gentle and devoted friend, Carla was adored and will be lovingly remembered.
