Carrol will be fondly remembered by many loving family members and close friends. She lived for her grandchildren and enjoyed spending as much time as she could with them. Carrol was a volunteer and a member with Wellspring Niagara for over a decade. Through her years, Carrol was an accomplished designer, artist and avid golfer who scored a hole in one!
The family would like to express its gratitude to the nursing staff at the hospital for the exceptional care of our wife and mom.

After a courageous battle with cancer, the family would appreciate any donations to be made to Wellspring Niagara in Carrol's honour.
