People Profiles: Spirit & Grit
Carol Balsley Hines
Carol Hines is the only daughter of Howard Balsley, the “Father of Uranium” and Jesse Trout Balsley. Carol’s life was filled with activity as wife of William Hines, as the mother of 9 adopted children, and as grand- and great-grandmother of their many descendants. She was a generous member or supporter of Daughters of Utah Pioneers, Women’s Literary Club, American Legion Auxiliary, Women’s Federation, Community Theater, 4-H Club, Boy Scouts and the Latter-day Saints church. Recalling the resourcefulness required to live in Moab “back then,” Carol’s memories of building community span the days of horse-drawn transportation through the nuclear age.
