CAROLE JOANNE MARTIN
June 9, 1946 - June 21, 2020
Carole was predeceased by her father Nick; mother Mary (Chikowski) and brothers, Bob and Gordon (Florence).
She is survived by her husband Joseph; her daughters, Pamela and Cindy; nephews, Darren (Wendy) and Kenny (Bev); niece Kathy; her sister in-laws, Doris (Harrison) and Donna (Godsell) and many more beloved nephews and nieces.
Carole will always be remembered for her cheerful magnetic personality, her amazing smile and cute comical witty sense of humour, her kind caring generous nature, welcoming hospitality and childlike love for laughter, nature, animals, music and singing her big beautiful heart out.
Carole initially grew up in Lowland, Manitoba, then moved to Winnipeg at a young age where she met and fell in love with her high school sweetheart, Joe Martin at Churchill High School, who is still her loving husband after 56 years. Not only was she an amazing mother and wife, Carole also became a highly skilled secretary for the Winnipeg School division for 22 years, primarily at Inkster school, where she made many good friends and was greatly loved, valued and appreciated by all who knew her.
Carole was also a very talented artist and successful small business owner with her Carole Martin's Flowers for all Occasions. She had an artistic flare and passion for flower arrangements, gardening and home decor. Carole loved her family above all, was most proud of her daughters and took great comfort and joy in the many fur friends she took in or helped save over the years.
Thank you to CancerCare and the team of Palliative Care nurses who helped us keep her comfortable at home in the care of her loving family. Thank you also for all the love, laughter and prayers from family and friends. One of Carole's final statements and public posts was how she believes that love and laughter is the best medicine and how grateful she felt for all her loved ones, "the two legged and the four legged."

My only contact with Carole had been through Facebook, and I have been inactive on this medium for quite some time. I was devastated when I opened Facebook today, to find a message from her just 5 days before her passing. She and I were frequent companions during our childhood, and I found her to be a delightful part of my life. My heartfelt condolences go to Joe, Pam and Cindy, and to her many friends. - Posted by: Alvin Karalus (Cousin) on: Aug 03, 2020
