June 3, 1941 - January 29, 2023

Carol Bergmann passed peacefully with her family at her side in Fort Macleod, Alberta, on January 29, 2023, at the age of 81.
She was born Marie Anna Diana Carol Demarcke in Lorette, Manitoba, on June 3, 1941, the youngest daughter of Leopold and Olivine Demarcke.
On December 29, 1992, Carol married Victor Peter Bergmann, and they lived the next 30 years of their lives together in the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. Carol and Vic built a successful business, The Crowsnest Angler, and supported the community they loved. One of Carol's favourite pastimes was attending garage and yard sales held in the Pass during the summer months. She also enjoyed cooking and baking for her family, fishing, going for drives to look for wildlife, and going out for ice cream. Carol loved to quilt and the many beautiful quilts she sewed for family and friends will be a memorial to her generosity and talent.
Carol is survived by her loving husband Vic, her daughters, Gina Balasubramanian and Corrie Anne (Robbie) Zetrouer; grandchildren, Chynna McGaffey, Joey Garland, and Kira Balasubramanian; great-grandchildren, Sawyer, Piper, and Walker McGaffey; her sisters, Shirley (Paul) Desrosiers and Cecile (Ed) Strembicki; and many loving nephews and nieces. Carol has reunited in heaven with her Miniature Schnauzer fur babies, Heidi and Breeze, whom she loved with all her heart.
Carol's Celebration of Life will be planned for the summer of 2023 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where extended family and her many friends can gather to remember her strong and loving spirit.
The family would like to thank the staff of Fort Macleod Extendicare for the compassionate care they provided Carol in her final months.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada ( and The Crowsnest Pass SPCA (
