November 11, 1942 – December 01, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce that Carol Grunewald (1942-2012) passed away December 1, 2012 at the age of 70 years after a courageous fight with breast cancer.

She lived most of her life in Calgary and after attending the Alberta College of Art she renewed her passion for painting through which her creative spirit will live on. Her joy for painting is evident in the numerous landscapes and family and pet portraits that she has left behind. Her compassionate and giving nature is evident in all that she did.

She will be sadly missed by her loving husband, Bob; mother, Inez; children, Kirby, Kim (Mike), Dan (Maureen), Bob Jr (Michelle), Joanne (Brad); seven grandchildren, Jaeline (Payden), Nathan, Kurtis, Jade, Ayden, Chad and Craig; her brother Bob (Dell); and numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, and extended family members and friends.

Carol was predeceased by her father Fred and brother Ron. Carol devoted herself wholly to her family as a loving mother, wife, grandmother, daughter, and caregiver.

A Celebration of Carol’s Life will be held at McInnis & Holloway Cochrane Funeral Home (369 Railway Street, Cochrane, AB), on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 1:00pm. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Breast Cancer Research Foundation, (300 – 1324 17 Avenue S.W. Calgary, Alberta – T2T 5S8, Tel: (403) 209-2233, Fax: (403) 209-2366) or Carewest Sarcee Hospice, (3504 Sarcee Road, S.W., Calgary, Alberta – T3E 2L3, Tel: (403) 686-8100). Heartfelt thanks to Carewest Sarcee Hospice whose compassion and care was greatly appreciated.

  2. Words do an injustice in explaining how much I will miss my dear sister in law Carol (nee Bullen). The hours we spent chatting on the phone and a last goodbye on her 70th birthday are fond memories and never forgotten. She will remain very much alive in our memories and admiration. My sincere condolences to all who loved her so much.
