Carol Grant

January 28, 1938 — January 7, 2023

Carol Ann Grant, age 84, passed away peacefully at home with her family on January 7, 2023 in  Boulder City, Nevada. Carol was born on January 28, 1938 in Jackson, Tennessee to Thomas  Quinn and Mary Lucille Sykes. In the 1950s the Sykes family left Tennessee to make their home  in Southern California. In 1965 Carol moved her family to Las Vegas after accepting a  Dispatcher position with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Carol was one of the first female patrol officers for the Clark County Sherriff’s Office and she  had a trailblazing and rewarding 25-year career as a police officer with the Las Vegas  Metropolitan Police Department. Throughout her career, Carol helped forge the path to make it  possible for women enter the patrol and investigation professions in law enforcement in Clark  County, Nevada. An article the Las Vegas Review Journal newspaper named Carol and her best  friend Sherri Crawford, Las Vegas’s own Cagney and Lacy. During Carol’s career as a police  investigator, she appeared in the television program “America’s Most Wanted” and highlighted  one of her cold cases. She was able to solve the cold case as a result of this program.

Carol was a resident of Boulder City for 42 years and was the generous and loving matriarch of  her large and blended family. Her wonderful sense of humor kept her family positive and  smiling. We have all lost a loving and special mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great great-grandmother and good friend.

Carol is survived by her son Richard (Tessa) Faber of Kingman, Arizona, daughters Carol (Bob)  Keyes of Jerome, Idaho, Barbara Stoneroad, Kim Riddle, Sandra (Gary) Leavitt of Henderson,  Nevada, Patricia (Philip) Vanderwal of Boulder City, Nevada, and her brother Bob Sykes of  California.

She is also survived by 16 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, her best friend Sherri Crawford, Toni Faber of Las Vegas, and her beloved dog  Lola.

Carol was preceded in death by her husband Daniel, her parents, her brother Thomas and her  son William Faber.
