April 30, 1942 – September 10, 2012
Carol Lee Bellam passed away peacefully at her home with her family beside her on Monday, September 10, 2012.
Carol Lee was a passionate educator in her career with the Calgary Board of Education and continued to teach and excel in the bridge community. She was the Canadian nominee for bridge instructor of the year in 2012, an international award, held this year in Nashville, Tennessee. She excelled in everything she did — especially as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She lived a glorious life cut way too short.
She will be greatly missed by her husband Edward Faichuk (who cared for her beautifully), her son Terry DeVries (Laura Lee Dyck), and her grandson Nikolas DeVries. She was predeceased by her parents Allen (Ted) and Alice (Dolly) Mundy, her son Dale DeVries, and her husband Ernest Bellam in 2001.
Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Friday, September 14, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
