CAROLE ELAINE ROBINSON
Date of Passing: Sep 14, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
CAROLE ELAINE ROBINSON
Carole was predeceased by her parents, John and Josephine McIntyre and leaves to cherish her memory, her husband of 55 years, Les, daughters, Cheryl, Kim (Roger), son Doug (Erika), the loves of her life - grandchildren, Ryan (girlfriend Natasha) and Brett, as well as her loving sister Jo-Anne, lifelong friend Darlene, and companion Herbie, an African-Grey Parrot.
Carole was a wonderful mother, grandmother, wife and friend. She loved her family with all her heart and always put others before herself. Carole wanted everyone to get along and avoid conflict with each other, believing communication was always the solution. She was loved by all, a wonderful friend to many, forging lifelong friendships and will be remembered as one of the most loving and kind-hearted women you would ever meet.
Carole worked several years in the Travel Industry, and she and Les spent many years travelling the world, including countless trips to Country Music Festivals, Hawaii, Europe, the Caribbean, many cruises, and her most memorable trip to Czech Republic to watch Ryan play in the 2012 Ball Hockey World Championship. The simple pleasures in life, talking with Herbie, listening to country music, Saturday hair appointments and dinner out with family or friends brought her great joy. She loved to go watch and cheer on Ryan and Brett any chance she could get, spending many hours at the rink.
Although it pains us she has left this world, her lasting legacy of strength and love lives on in all of those whose lives she touched.
Due to Covid restrictions a small family service has been held.
Donations may be made in her memory to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
Les, our sincerest condolences. We always enjoyed our time with you and Carole. She was a wonderful, classy lady, so much fun to be around. I can still hear her and Val laughing and laughing. You were such a big part of our lives for many years. If it weren’t for COVID we would be there for you with bugs hugs. Know we are thinking of you. - Posted by: Kathryn & Glenn Bartmanovich (“Old” friends) on: Oct 02, 2021
Carole Robinson was my mother-in-law. Admittedly, I was worried about meeting her for the first time. Doug and his mom were close, and for any woman marrying into a family, it’s the relationship that can be the most challenging. But this couldn’t be farther from the truth with Carole. I was struck by her warmth, her humor and deep satisfaction with the family and life she and Les built together in Winnipeg. These are the things I loved most about Carole and will likely miss the most: * The look on her face any time the family was together at Cheryl’s. It was a mixture of joy and pride at being in the midst those who meant the most to her. * Her whimsical musical e-cards she sent to me for my birthday * Her sense of humor and wit. My favorite quips from her include her talking about just how old the game crokinole is, sharing that it is from the days when the “ladies laced their boots” and her teasing Doug about the change in flag waving after Canada lost a match in the World Jr. Hockey Championship to the US. Doug boasted to her about waving the Canadian flag at me each time Team Canada did something impressive in the game. After they lost, she left him him a simple voicemail asking the question “who’s waving the flag now?” * Sitting in the basement or sun room at Les and Carole’s place and enjoying time together talking, watching TV and marveling at Herb * Her laugh, and getting to laugh with her and my friends as we prepped centerpieces and my bouquet the night before I married Doug * Her beauty and how she drew admirers and compliments and responses from others based on her style. I am so grateful and blessed that I had the chance to get to know Carole and to be a part of her family. She was my “mother from another” and I will always appreciate her example of living life on her terms. Erika Robinson - Posted by: Erika Robinson (Daughter-in-law) on: Oct 01, 2021
Condolences to Les and family. Many fond memories of Les and Carole spending time with my parents. Carole didn’t do casual, always dressed to the nines, and always a smile. Miss the shenanigans between her and Herbie. Heaven has gained a very special angel. - Posted by: Scott Hamblin (Friend) on: Sep 25, 2021
