September 8, 1941 – Calgary, Alberta
April 8, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Kathleen Carol Leibham on Monday, April 8, 2019, at the age of 77 from a brief illness. She was surrounded lovingly by family and friends. Kathleen Carol was always known as “Carol,” by all who knew and loved her.

Carol was born in Calgary on September 8, 1941. She graduated from St. Mary’s High School in Calgary in 1959. Carol married her high school sweetheart Ken on May 20, 1961. Carol worked for the CIBC Data Centre for 30 years, where she forged many great friendships and maintained them throughout the years since retiring. Her favourite past time was crocheting and she was an avid reader; she loved going on camping trips with Ken.

Carol is survived by her husband Ken, daughter Dawn Marie, (Graham) and son Darren. Carol is predeceased by her parents Helen and David Blair, Sister Marlene and Brother David.

Carol will be fondly remembered for her sharp wit, loving sense of humor and for always making sure everyone around her was comfortable, ahead of her own needs.

In living memory of Carol Leibham, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE NW, CALGARY, AB T3G 2T3, Telephone: 403-241-0044.

Darren, Dawn Marie, Graham and Mr. Leibham, we are truly sorry for this tremendous loss to your family. I was fortunate to experience her affectionate sense of humour on a number of occasions. She was a straight shooter, and loved life. Her memory will remain with a look, witty comment, or a gesture made by one of you. Our thoughts are with you through this challenging time.
