(nee Paquet) passed away at her home in Edgewood, B.C. on January 28, 2008, at age 63, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Carol spent the last 25 years of her life in the nursing profession, working with Native Canadian communities in Northern B.C. and the Far North, and later with the Canadian Red Cross. She volunteered as a nurse in Botswana, Burundi and Kenya. Her last work as a nurse was in Wartorn Sir Lanka. Her compassion for the disadvantaged children of Africa led to her work with the Canadian branch of FORWAC (Friends of Rural Women and Children), finding foster parents for aids-orphaned children in Kenya.
Carol lived her life with boundless energy and enthusiasm. She was a beautiful, complex woman who brought her own special sparkle and spirit to the lives of those she touched. She is very much missed by her daughter Lisa, son Johnathan (Kristen), sisters Jeanine and Lyse, brothers Darcy and Joseph, her many nieces and nephews and her friends and co-workers around the globe. No service by request. Carol had asked that her ashes be divided between Kenya and Edgewood. In lieu of flowers, a charitable donation may be made to ACCES (African Canadian Continuing Education Society), 2442 Christopherson Rd., Surrey, B.C. V4A 3L2
