Carla Jean Hansen Bethany, 45, passed Wednesday, May 6, 2020, at home, in Huntsville.
Please take a moment and share a fond memory or thought with Carla’s family at
Born in Richfield, Utah, on April 30, 1975, Carla dearly loved her home state.
 She married Brett Bethany on July 23, 1998, in Richfield, Utah, and moved to Arkansas in 2000, where they settled and made a wonderful home.
Brett and Carla had two cherished children. Daughter, Alexis, and son, Ashton.
Gardening and outdoors were two of her favorite pastimes. Having a green thumb, Carla raised and babied her delicious vegetables enjoyed by many family members and friends. She was very creative and loved exploring different crafts. Carla had a very artistic talent and loved to use her gift. The many creations she made were very desirable and wanted by many people. Camping in the mountains, or anywhere she could hike or “just be”, brought her great peace of mind. Being with family was very important to her. Carla dearly loved the times her family was able to travel and visit close family, back in her beloved Utah, whenever they could. Working in the medical field was a career chosen at an early age, always loving to be of help to people.
