Carol touched many lives as a teacher with TVDSB for 35 years. She was an avid pickleball player, enthusiastically joining in many games a week with Guy and their friends. Carol walked countless miles with her husband. Their quick pace was a common sight in their neighborhood. Carol and Guy loved a good euchre game and the pandemic didn’t stop them. They kept up weekly euchre games online with their friends. More than anything, what brought Carol joy was being with her family. Her memory will continue to be honoured at every family gathering and celebration. Cremation has taken place and a private interment will be held at Woodland Cemetery, to be followed by a celebration of life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a Memorial page has been set up with the Pancreatic Cancer society in Carol’s name, and donations may be made there.
