Carole Jarvis

March 18, 1935 — August 27, 2023

Carole Jane Jarvis, 88, passed away peacefully with her daughters by her side on August 27, 2023 at her home. Carole was born in Los Angeles, California to Clyde and Louise Dawson on March 18, 1935.

She was a woman of many talents, best known for her captivating cowboy poetry and her love for ranching. Her spirit filled a room and her words painted a vivid picture of the timeless beauty of the American West.

She married the love of her life, Dan Jarvis, on December 20, 1957 in Wickenburg, Arizona and they began building their homeplace along the Hassayampa north of Wickenburg. Together they had 2 daughters, Danna Lee and Laura. Carole and Dan lived in Wickenburg, Arizona for 33 years, a town that she lovingly called home.

Carole and Dan spent 17 years in Joseph, Oregon before returning to Forepaugh, Arizona for the remainder of their lives.

The family would like to give a special thanks to Hospice of the West and Wickenburg Community Hospital for the kindness and support through the last days with Carole as well as to family and friends who offered their support.

Carole leaves behind her 2 daughters; Danna Lee Keil, her husband Bruce and daughter Laura Moore, as well as 4 grandchildren; Luke, Levi, and Seth Jarvis and Markanna Moore. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

A Celebration of Carole’s Life will be held in November. Please feel free to check in with the family for more information or Carole’s page at
