It is with great sadness that the family of Carole Ramsay announces her passing on Friday, September 28, 2007, from a brain aneurysm, at the age of 68 years.
Carole was born on January 7, 1939 in Virden, MB. Throughout her marvellous life she lived in East Selkirk, Manitou, Winnipeg, St. Thomas, Toronto, Waterloo (Belgium), Edmonton, Ignace, and Calgary. In each town or city where she resided, she touched the lives of so many through her various volunteer pursuits and community involvements. She was a vibrant member of the Edmonton Newcomers Club, Edmonton Extendicare Auxiliary, Esso Annuitants Club, and Calgary and Edmonton Chapters of the PEO. Also, Carole was blessed with a tremendous talent for playing the piano and shared this gift with many appreciative listeners throughout her life. Moreover, Carole was an avid sportswoman and consummate team player and enjoyed golf, lawn bowling, and excelled at curling. (Carole’s team won the Southern Ontario Ladies Curling Association championship in 1973.) Coupled with her passion for sports, music, and philanthropic endeavours was her ultimate passion – her family and her new husband Mac. As a mom, she was a magnificent support to her children and grandchildren. She was the cornerstone of her family.
Carole is deeply loved and will be missed by her husband Mac; her daughter and son-in-law Leslie and Wayne and their daughters, Claire, Grace, Lilly, and Moira; her son and daughter-in-law Bradley and Serena and their son Gerrit; daughter and son-in-law Leah and Gerald and their son Liam; and her daughter and son-in-law Heather and Mike and their sons, Jakob and Matthew.
