Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • Sincere condolences to Donna, Michael, Lisa, Travis, Carey and your respective families - I am shocked and saddened to hear of Carol's passing. I have known Carol from grade school through to High School and she was always a happy, positive and friendly person. Our mothers were close friends through Charleswood United Church and Rebbeka Lodge and we often reconnected. In recent years we shared the ministry at Charleswood United Church and visited on a regular basis. Carol was always there to volunteer and share her love, care and compassion. May she rest in peace. - Posted by: Barbara Bilodeau-Shumeley (Collett) (School friend.....) on: Jan 12, 2018

  • For the last several years Carol has attended a variety of my fitness classes at the 55 Charleswood Active Living Centre. Her warm smile ,sparkly eyes and positive attitude was a welcome blessing to all in class. She used to joke with me that she wanted to start each class with the various guided meditations I saved for the last few minutes. "Why save the best for last " she would quip? We will certainly miss and remember her. - Posted by: Jill Baird (fitness instructor) on: Jan 11, 2018
