Carolyn’s sensible and caring ways helped her pass very peacefully on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 70 years of age, at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital with family and friends at her side. Carolyn was a wonderful lady and anyone who knew her will never forget her as she cared for everyone.
Carolyn was born on October 14, 1943 in Virden, Manitoba and raised on the family farm in Pipestone, Manitoba. She attended school in Manitoba and in April of 1966 moved to Calgary with Anglo Oil for work where she met Allan, her wonderful husband. They were married in Reston, MB in October 1968. In 1976 they moved to Cranbrook to raise their family.
Carolyn was very involved in summer and winter sports. She very much enjoyed curling, golfing and skiing. She spent many hours with her children while they played in minor hockey and then with the Cranbrook Colts. She also loved live sports and TV sports. She was an avid member of the Cranbrook Golf Club and served on the Board Of Directors. Carolyn was a dedicated wife and mother and an excellent cook. We will all remember her remarkable meals and wonderful generosity.
Carolyn was predeceased by her husband Allan “Shrub” in 1995, her father Frank in 1995 and her mother Annie in 1974. She leaves to mourn her passing her two sons: Craig (Kimberly) and children Tyra and Hunter; and Wayne (Holly Ellis) and daughter Karli; her very close friends Eileen LePage and Doug and Darlene Racher as well as many other close friends.
A Celebration Of Carolyn’s Life will be held at a later date at the Cranbrook Golf Club. In lieu of flowers, donations in her honour can be made to the: East Kootenay S.P.C.A., PO Box 2, Cranbrook, British Columbia, V1C 4H6.
