STREETON, Carol Lee

August 14, 1952 – Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
February 5, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

The world lost someone who loved all creatures great and small.

Carol was born and raised on a farm near Plunkett, Saskatchewan to Gib and Fran Streeton. She was proud of her prairie heritage. After graduating from high school she moved to Edmonton to take the key punching course which led to employment in Vancouver, Regina, Lloydminster and Calgary. She spent over forty years living in Calgary. Carol worked in the retail, real estate and casino industries. She then became part-owner of Western Fresh Air Fireplace.

She had many interests and passions. She enjoyed the Calgary Stampede, day trips, craft shows, gardening, trying new recipes, and she was a huge lover of animals – especially cats. Country music, things that had a story, she loved to knit (hated sewing!) and she was known for her wicked sense of humor. She got great joy from whipping you at cards and crib. Carol loved giving directions and her favorite phrase of “you should…” created many a laugh. She loved process and doing everything right. She believed if there was a job to do – now is the time to do it. (Yes – she cleaned out all of our fridges!)
She was feisty and strong-willed with an opinion and she was immensely loyal to her family, friends and nature. We are so lucky to have had such a beautiful person in our lives. We take her laugh and smile with us.

Carol passed from endometrial cancer and we thank her caring team of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, home care, and medics – all the people who helped her during her struggle of 1.5 years. She was a huge believer of how great our healthcare system is and it did not fail her.

Carol leaves behind her sister Sylvia (Layne) Duke; nieces Kim Duke (Rob), Kelly Duke (Merv), Carly (Tyler) Walter, Megan Walter; nephew Wayne (Mandy) Maskewich and her loving friends Nina (Ron) Smith, Joanne Patterson, Sharon Sconers and the Streeton and Bentley families and many other extended family and friends dear to her heart. She will also be missed by her beloved cats: Mickey, Monty, Muffy, Paisley, Tiggy and Pekoe.

A family memorial will be held in the spring. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Carol Streeton, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Deerfoot South, 12281 – 40th STREET S.E.. Telephone: 403-203-0525.

    Sorry to hear of Carol’s passing, hearing of it a few days ago. My condolences go to all of Carol’s family and relatives. She was much too young to pass on. After reading reading the obituary, I knew that Carol was a special lady who will be very dearly missed by all her family and friends.

    I remember Carol in school, though I was some grades ahead of her. I did not know for many years Carol lived in Calgary and after knowing I connected with her at the fireplace store for a purchase. It would have be a pleasure knowing her and enjoying her sense of humor.
