September 6, 1945 – October 21, 2015
at the age of 70 years
An informal Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 28th at the Elk’s Hall at 1:30 p.m.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a dear wife, mother, grandmother and friend at Bastion Place in Salmon Arm, BC on October 21, 2015 at the age of 70 years.
Carole will be forever missed and remembered by her husband Norman, daughter Brenda (Tim), sons Dean (Esther) and Neal, grandchildren Madison, Jayden, Sean and Brett and devoted four-legged companion Shasha, as well as many relatives and close friends. She is predeceased by her parents Arnold and Mary Albertson and her brother Melvin.
Carole was a quiet, strong and loyal soul who loved her family and friends and showed it in the way she looked after us all. She was an excellent seamstress, prolific crafter, avid gardener, voracious reader and loved getting out on the tennis court and golf greens with her friends. She will be greatly missed by us all.
The family would like to extend our utmost gratitude towards Dr. James Levins as well as the staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital and the second floor staff at Bastion Place for the kindness and care shown to our mother/wife during her short time spent there.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Carole’s name may be made to the ALS Society of BC, 13351 Commerce Pkwy, Richmond, BC V6V 3A4, www.alsbc.ca/donate.
My deepest sympathies goes out to cousin Norman, Brenda, Dean, Neal and all Carol’s grandkids. I remember Carole and Norman’s many visits to their Uncle George and Aunt Elaine’s house on Langford Lake after their fishing and camping trips on the coast.
She will be missed.
Sending positive thoughts to Carole’s family. I always remember how happy Carole was on the tennis court. Gone too soon… Marianne VanBuskirk
Our heartfelt sympathies to you and the family. In years gone by we have ridden to school together, played some tennis, went on “treasure” hunting trips in the antique stores(Vernon) swapped books and the odd plant. She never seemed to have any trouble turning a piece of material into something to be envied! Seems to me that Carole and Joan A. use to whip up a pretty “mean” amount of candies for Christmas too. Take care Norm, and remember we are here for you. Hugs.
My heartfelt sympathies to the family. I played tennis for several years with Carole. She was always so friendly. I am so sorry that she has passed at such a relatively young age.
My deepest condolences to the whole family. Our family is coming to terms with the passing of our dad, so I truly understand the sadness and sense of loss. Know that you’re in the thoughts of all of us in the Whitehead family.
