They lived the military life, moving across Canada and the United States every couple of years. They settled in Genelle, BC in 1989. Carol later moved to Redcliff to be closer to her daughters. She was a very strong, kind and loving lady. She was always ready for get- togethers with family and friends to play cards, games or go camping. Carol loved to travel and would drive from BC to Manitoba to visit with her grandkids, stopping to visit family and friends along the way. She enjoyed being outdoors, gardening, ceramics, hot tubbing, and spending time with her dogs and in her earlier years, her horses. Her favorite trips were to the Pan Am Games in Winnipeg and her weekend trip to Spruce Meadows. Carol was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed.
