Posted: January 7th, 2022

Carol Doreen Kolody passed away peacefully at the Bow Island Health Centre, surrounded by family on January 2, 2022 at the age of 78 years. She leaves to cherish her memory, her beloved husband of 50 years, Ted Kolody, her children, Todd Kolody, Derry Kolody, Carma (Kevin) Lane, Willis (Nicole) Kolody, Linda (Chuck) McDonald; grandchildren, Danae and Jalen Lane, Cavan and Kyana Kolody, Keegan and Zaide Kolody and great grand daughters, Tylah and Layklyn Lane. Also left behind to cherish her memory is Jack and Bev Kolody, Carol Kolody as well as numerous nieces and nephews and many friends. She was predeceased by her parents, Enoch and Lucille Christianson; her father and mother- in- law, William and Olga Kolody; brothers, Garth Christianson, Carmon Christianson; sister, Lynn Pollitt; brothers- in- law, Kenneth Pollitt and Walter Kolody. In 1971 our mom met the love of her life, Ted and married in November of the same year. Sons, Todd and Derry were brought into her world in the following 2 years, soon to be joined by their sister, Carma. Three years later they had another son, Willis. A few years later, mom’s sister, Lynn passed away, so mom and dad adopted their niece, Linda, and raised her like their own. Five kids in the span of 6 years. Mom’s family was complete. Our mom was born in Gull Lake, Saskatchewan on March 17, 1943. She lived for many years in Magrath, AB before moving to Calgary for a few years. She then met dad and in 1971, she moved to Bow Island, and then out to the farm east of Bow Island where she raised her family. They retired from farming in 1995, but lived there until 2005. In 2005 they retired off the farm into Medicine Hat. Mom enjoyed living in Medicine Hat, but she always said that when she needed to have assisted living, she was moving back to the Pleasant View Lodge in Bow Island. We were able to make this move happen, even if it was only for 7 days. Mom’s family was the most important thing to her. Thankfully she was able to raise her family as a stay home mom. She loved helping dad on the farm and doing lots of yard work alongside him and her 5 kids. She grew a huge garden and loved spending lots of time outdoors. She also liked cooking, sewing, painting, drawing, cake decorating and the list goes on. Mom could do almost anything. Definitely a “Jill of all trades”. She spent hundreds of hours chasing all of her kids around to their various sports. She loved driving all of them to their practices and games . I don’t think mom hardly missed a single game. Mom was so full of love that it didn’t just stop at dad and her kids, she had so much love for each one of her grandkids, and when her 2 great grandbabies came along, the love was still pouring out of her. A private Graveside Service will be held. In lieu of flowers, mom would like you to go out and show random acts of kindness to someone in need.
