  3. To all the family and friends, I am so very sad that Carole has died. I loved her from the moment we first met and have so many happy memories of our times together while Mike was still alive, and later visits with Carole and Peter in Calgary, along with my Mom and Dad. Carole and I supported each other through the sorrow of Mike’s death and always remained close. Carole was a wonderful person and the best mother-in-law I could imagine – fun to be with, caring and thoughtful, great sense of humour, and an optimistic and wise outlook on life. She was deeply loved and will be much missed. I wish I could be with you all during these days, but am far away in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Sending my love across the miles, and joined in this sadness and sympathy by my parents – Al and Sally Durno – and my brothers Bill and John and their families, Janet

    We have many fond memories of “Auntie Mom”, particularly during the time she spent in Peterborough. Her “MacMillan laugh” never failed to brighten our home and cottage. We will miss her but know she is in a peaceful and happy place.

  7. Laurel and Lennon :

    Dave, Wendy, Uncle Don, Auntie Jeanne, Mom and Dad,
    We were so lucky to have been able to spend time with Auntie Carole when she was in Peterborough. Lennon remembers her talking about his “Irish mug” and hanging out with her and Uncle Peter (and eating Smarties!!). I have happy memories of visiting Auntie Carole and Snoopy the dog in Calgary and of her funny, dry sense of humour. I loved her stories about the times when she had to take “the Boo” (Dad Bruce) out for walks in Orillia back in “the day”. She was a cool auntie and I’m sorry we have to say good-bye. Take care with love, Laurie and Lennon

  8. Stu and Tracey :

    Dave, Wendy, Dad, Mom, Bruce and Pat –
    We’re very sorry to hear of Carole’s passing – she will be deeply missed. We feel lucky to have been able to bring the kids to visit with her, Dave and Wendy in Ft. McMurray; it reminded me (Stu) of visits to Carole’s in Calgary when I was a kid, especially her laugh that was so infectious. Our condolences go out to the whole family.
