September 20, 1937 -February 1, 2014
In loving memory of Carole Anne Martin (nee Cossar).
Mom left us too early and too suddenly. She was a beautiful lady who lived for her family. Mom was an animal lover and took great pleasure in watching ‘her’ little birdies at the backyard feeder as well as the deer and assorted wildlife who graced her backyard regularly.
As an active Avon lady, Mom was well known to many. She loved being involved and cherished her ‘people’ dearly. It was not unusual to get a hug with your order! She was never one to sit with hands still either. If she wasn’t knitting or crocheting hats and blankets for various charities, she was making jewelry for family and friends with her sparkly beads! A true crafter at heart.
Mom was truly a young spirit. She loved sparkles, rainbows, twinkly lights and decorating. Too many lights? NEVER!! Each spring she looked forward to getting all her outdoor lights set up in her other love, her garden. Spring was her favorite time of year…the time her flower babies would come back to life and grant her the riot of colour she loved so dearly. This spring will be a tough one for us.
Carole is survived by her loving husband, Brian; her daughter Roberta Lacroix (nee Fredrickson) and her son David Fredrickson, grandson Damian Stevenson, sister Roberta Pritchard (Robert), her niece Cara Koehler (nee Pritchard) (Darren) and nephew Bruce Pritchard (Katy). According to her wishes, a Celebration of Life will be held at their home on March 8th.
