CAROL EVELYN HOPMAN
January 19, 1945 - October 26, 2022
It is with very heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear mother Carol at the age of 77, at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg on October 26, 2022.
Mom will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her two sons and lights of her life Rick (Penny), and Beau (Shauna); grandchildren Jeremy (Kelsey), Joe (Alyssa), Amy and Ashley; great- grandchildren Ella, Emily, Hunter, Arya and Annie. Carol also leaves behind her brothers Donald and Bob (Deanna); sisters Irene (Alan) and Francis; as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
Mom was born on January 19, 1945 in Birch River, Manitoba, and soon after moved to Winnipeg where she lived with her parents until she married the love of her life and soul mate George. They remained happily married until his passing in 2017. Mom enjoyed the work she did for the Department of Defence until she retired at the age of 72.
Mom was an avid reader and enjoyed going to bingo but spending time with family was her passion. Mom would always do anything for her loved ones, she was only happy when she knew everyone else was happy. Mom was predeceased by her husband George; parents Joseph (Charlie) and Esther; sisters Sharon and Hazel and brother Earl.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 2:00 p.m., at the Coutu Funeral Home, located at 680 Archibald Street.
Friends and family are invited to sign the online book of condolences at ejcoutu.ca

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I wish I could be there to extend my sincere condolences to Richard & Beaudry in particular and their family’s and friends but a medical issue prevents it, Carol was my giggly younger sister and although we lived miles apart most of our adult lives we had lots of laughs & reminiscences on the occasions we were able to get together. I will always remember when she and her girl friend came to Boston to visit me shortly after I left Winnipeg for my career around 1964. They were so young and full of joy and adventure in seeing a new area outside of Winnipeg for the first time as very young ladies. Myself & my wife Deanna were fortunate to see her at the hospital in Winnipeg this year and find her in good spirits before her passing. Between these times we shared many happy occasions and visits with Carol which we always recall fondly God bless Carol and surviving family Uncle & Great-Uncle Bob - Posted by: Bob chaboyer (Brother) on: Nov 30, 2022

I got to talking to your mom after we made a connection through CJD as I had a family member who went through the same thing.One of the things we always talked about was her family she was so very proud of her boys and their families It was alway such a pleasure to talk to her. I will forever miss the great conversations we had. Carol is now once again with the love of her life . You are in my thoughts and prayers . She will be spending Christmas with Jesus this year. - Posted by: Rhonda Cameron (Friend) on: Nov 26, 2022
