Carol had many loves in life, but her biggest was her family. She was very proud of her three boys and their families. She also loved to cook and experiment in the kitchen, quilt, and sew making quilts for her seven grandchildren and many blankets and towels for the Grand River N.I.C.U Department in Kitchener. She also loved to travel whether to the sunny south, the U.K. or from coast to coast in Canada.

A private family graveside service will take place at Walkerton Cemetery.

A celebration of Carol’s life will be held from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, August 22, 2022, at the Walkerton Knights of Columbus Hall (1658 Hwy 9 between Walkerton and Mildmay).
