May 26, 1935 – September 10, 2010
It is with great sadness that the family of Carol announce her passing, her promotion to glory, early in the morning on Friday, September 10, 2010, surrounded by her loving family, at the age of 75 years.
Carol touched many lives with her loving kindness, beautiful spirit and incredible courage; not to mention her awesome cookies. It was only one month ago that twenty-four of her family members travelled with her to Maui to celebrate the fiftieth wedding anniversary to the love of her life, Vern. Amongst rolling waves, fun times at the pool and laughs galore, we treasured the gift of time we had with her. As a cancer survivor for twelve years she fought the battle bravely and courageously right to the end. Carol experienced and enjoyed many great times with friends and loved ones in her homes in Calgary, Windermere, BC, and Palm Valley Country Club in Palm Desert, CA.
Carol is survived by her loving husband Vern; sons Greg (Elaine) and Clark (Kathy); daughters Marleea (Bob Ashauer) and Marilyn (Cameron Blewett); and grandchildren whom she adored, Brittany, Jenessa and Madison; Sean, Jack, Cole and Lauren; Rachel, Chantel, Nicole and Alyssa; Jaeden, Ashton, Arianna, and Luke. She is also survived by her sister Joan Kelm as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Carol was predeceased by her parents Victor and Hilda Nargang and her brother Clinton Nargang.
