Carole was first and foremost a homemaker and amazing Mom, Nanny and Granny. Family was everything to her. She made everyone that came to the farm feel welcome and loved. Many young lads came and stayed until they got back on their feet. She loved movies, music, art, gardening and decorating the family home. She loved camping and swimming at Pine Lake, socializing with all the campers and performing at the talent show. She was a great joke teller and loved playing with her children and grandchildren teaching them crafts and watercolour painting. She was an active member of the ACW of Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Lombardy for more than 50 years.
