January 5, 1940 – Montreal, QC
September 30, 2013 – Calgary, AB
Carol Ann Simons, beloved wife of Richard of Calgary, passed away peacefully at Rockyview General Hospital with her family at her side on Monday, September 30, 2013 at the age of 73 years.
Carol never forgot her roots, having grown up in Montreal. She graduated from nursing at McGill and worked in Montreal for a period of time before she and Richard moved out west, first to Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and then finally Alberta. They raised their family in Calgary and she returned to nursing in 1989. Carol loved painting, singing, quilting, crafting, camping, and being surrounded by good people. She will be greatly missed by her family, extended family and the many dear friends she met over the years.
Besides her loving husband Richard, she will be lovingly remembered by her son and daughter-in-law Paul and Wendy; daughter and son-in-law Laurie and Scott; and her three grandsons, Ian, Aaron and Adam.
