HARVIE – Carol Jean (nee Campbell)


Carol Harvie passed away on Tuesday, August 3, 2010, in the company of her family, after a brief illness.

Carol was born on November 30, 1936 in Delburne, Alberta to Bruce and Alice Campbell. She attended school in both Delburne and Red Deer and graduated from the University of Alberta Nursing School in September 1957. After graduating, Carol worked as a nurse in Lacombe, Alberta where she met Sandy Harvie who she married in 1960. Carol and Sandy settled in Calgary where they raised their family and cultivated a wide circle of friends. In 1996 Carol and Sandy moved to acreage near Olds, Alberta where she enjoyed the wide vistas and the company of her beloved dogs. Carol was a devoted wife and mother who always put the needs of her husband and her children first. Her concern for others was also reflected in her many volunteer associations in Calgary and Olds. She was a member of the Kinette Club of Calgary for many years and volunteered as a labour and delivery coach and for the Mount View Special Riding Association. One of the great joys of her life was her continued fellowship with her nursing classmates. Carol was president of her 1957 graduating class and she kept in contact with her classmates, attending functions and imitating the Queen, for over fifty years. Carol will be remembered for her wit, humour and generous spirit; she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Carol is survived, and lovingly remembered, by her children, Janet Harvie and Britt Simmons of Calgary, John Harvie of Didsbury, Margot Harvie of Calgary and Allyson and Kevin Gurr of Camrose; and by her grandchildren, Jonathan, Kathleen, and Lindsay Gurr and Joe and Duncan Simmons. She is also survived by her brothers Dave and Ken Campbell, her sister Linda Bradley and their sons and daughters. Carol was predeceased by Sandy, her husband of thirty nine years, and her brother Clark.

A Memorial gathering will be held on Sunday, August 8, 2010 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at Willow Park Golf and Country Club (639 Willow Park Drive S.E.) Forward condolences through The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff of Chinook Hospice for their compassionate care. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made in Carol’s name to Kidsport Canada,

In living memory of Carol Harvie, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.

    To Carol’s Family,
    My deepest sympathy on your great loss. (I am a Sept. ’57 classmate, and neighbor of Mary Morrow) Our last time together was in Jasper last fall, where we’d stay up late to remember good times…Carol will always have a special place in my heart and memory.

    Our thoughts are with you and we share your sadness. I immediately thought of the many fun days “hanging” out at the Harvie household during Jr.High/School days, and the smile your mom always had on her face as she greeted us at the door. I know you will reflect on many special memories and the many times you had with such a special lady. We send you all a hug! xoxo

    I am so deeply saddened to hear of Carol’s passing. I am a trainer at the Curves in Olds were Carol was a member for years. She and I had many long chats on the circuit while she did her workout. She always had so much to offer to the conversation no matter what topic was being discussed. When it was just her and I we would often have little heart to hearts. She gave excellent advice to me on how to deal with teenagers and little secrets on how to keep my marriage strong and healthy. I will forever cherish those times that it was just Carol and I. I speak for everyone at the club that had the chance to get to know her what a wonderful women she was and how greatly she will be missed. I send my thoughts and prayers to the family during this difficult time.
