January 31, 1957 - January 11, 2020

Carol passed away peacefully at Boyne Lodge Care Home, after a lengthy illness.
Carol is survived by four children: daughters, Crystal (Brian) Kubas, Amber (Shaun) Kubas; son Sean Kubas; stepdaughter Melanie Kubas; and two grandchildren, Emily and Kai. Carol is also survived by her sister Joy Sonnichsen; brothers, Gordon (Deb), Allen (Joan), Ken (Joan) and Blair (Vicki) Sonnichsen. Also many nieces and nephews.
Carol is predeceased by her stepson Ryan Kubas; her parents, Helmut and Gertrude Sonnichsen.
Carol was born and raised in Headingley, MB. She graduated from St. James Collegiate where she participated in many sports activities. Carol lived, worked and raised her children in Headingley.
She was kindhearted and gifted in so many ways. She was a dedicated Mom driving her kids to hockey, singing, Brownies or whereever their interests took them. She loved her community and invested herself in her neighbourhood, donating her time to lunch programs, canteen shifts, or lifeguarding the neighbourhood kids as they enjoyed a swim in her pool.
Her life was too short but her influence immeasurable.
A celebration of her life will be held on January 24, 2020, at 1:30 p.m., at the Headingley Hall, 5353 Portage Ave.

Doyle's Funeral Home, Carman
in care of arrangements

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Unable to express in words the saddness in my heart on hearing of Carol's passing. Although my memories of her are from our youth (it's probably 40 years since I last saw Carol) I've always felt she was someone that would make a difference in life, whether in her life or someone else's and having the family she did, I'm sure she made an impact. She was always kind, considerate, compassionate, the type of person who always made you feel like she really cared. She had a tomboyish streak in her and that was the part I admired the most. Didn't matter what game or sport we played, Carol played hard and she was good. If she was the only girl playing it didn't matter she gave it her all and was often the best player out there. My last memory of Carol will be that she now rests in the loving arms of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Kerri and I offer our sincere condolences to the entire Sonnichsen family and to ones closest to Carol and our prayer is that they would receive the peace that Jesus promises us. Rest in Peace Carol, Kerri & Ken Neufeld - Posted by: Ken & Kerri Neufeld (Childhood friend) on: Jan 20, 2020
