My sympathy to Carol’s family and friends. From our early days of roller skating at the Stadium to later dropping by Outer Cove for a quick vist with John and Carol., it was always my pleasure to be in her company.
Rest in Peace , Carol.

I was so saddened to hear of Carol’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Ron and I had many good times with Carol and John from when I started working with Carol in 1968 until she retired. So many memories. I learned during that time how much she loved her family, creating a special bond with her nieces and nephews, always telling me about their accomplisments, a very proud auntie. Again, our condolences.

Our deepest sympathy to all the family on Carol’s passing . Over the years at St. Thomas’ church we shared many wonderful times together. Carol was always eager to help or volunteer at various church functions and her great sense of humour always made for an enjoyable experience .
After our volunteer actiivities we both looked forward to our visits to Coffee Matters which were filled with many long and pleasant conversations .
May God bless you as you celebrate Carol’s life.

My condolences to Carol’s family. She was the sweetest woman and welcomed us when we came to visit her and Farmer John! I remember visiting the farm many times when I was a young girl. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this hard time.

Olga and Neil , sorry to read of Carol’s passing I quite remember her shopping at a SPECIAL TOUCH IN THE AVALON MALL ..looking for that special gift for Christmas time and always a chat she will be missed ,thinking of you at this sad time ,,,,,,,,,

My deepest sympathy to all the family. I have fond memories of Carol as a friend, co-worker at Public Utilities Commission and Bridesmaid at my Wedding.. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

So sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. She was a wonderful woman, a great co-worker and a special friend. You could always get a lunch and cup of tea at Carol’s. I fondly remember times I would visit with her and Farmer John with my two girls when they were small. Carol always loved to see the girls, especially at Christmas time. She will be truly missed.

Every workplace has an exceptional person but few could hold a candle to Carol. Carol knew the PUB better than anyone, she could find an order or a piece of a submission that was filed 20 years before in practically the time it took to boil a kettle. She smiled, she laughed, she was professional, she was admired and sought after across the country, she had the respect of all the regulated companies, operators of motor carriers, and intervenors alike. Most of all she was compassionate and kind and a very wonderful friend. Heaven is a better place today because she is there.
Our condolences at this very sad time,

Leslie and Denis Galway

Carol and I first met when I worked with NF Hydro and she worked with the PUB. After we both retired we bowled out of St. Pat’s on Fridays. She was a lovely, wonderful and awesome lady. I will miss you Carol, especially all the reminising we did about work times and old colleagues!! God Bless

I am so sad to hear this news today. Aunt Carol was an amazing, caring & thoughtful woman! I loved it when she used to come into the store to visit me! We’d have so much fun together! Her smile was contagious. She will be truly missed and I will be thinking about her and all of you guys. I’m so sorry for your loss.

Love Leanne Avery (Bryce)
