Carol was a free spirit. She was a sister, daughter, mother, spouse and grandmother. Carol loved life and traveled with her partner Eric extensively. Carol was always the life of the party, and was one of the first people on the dance floor shaking her butt! Although she didn't graduate until she was middle-aged, she went on to become a literacy teacher and won the literacy award of BC in 2004. She formed great bonds with her students, and was great at putting people at ease. She didn't know how to look down on people and everyone was given an open heart, big smile and a warm hug when they came in the door. Carol loved nature and spent many weekends camping or fishing and every afternoon in their spacious backyard relaxing and watching the bald eagles that nested there. She was a great cook, a great mom, and an even better grandmother and the world dimmed a little when she left it.
