  1. Marlene Doherty :

    I had the pleasure of meeting Carol when I was a University student working track & field meets for the CBE and then later as a PE teacher volunteering for the Calgary Junior High Athletic Association. Mrs. Ericson was always so approachable, kind, caring, helpful all with her wonderful smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you
