July 7, 1944 – July 9, 2019
Carole was born in Grande Prairie Alberta to parents Pearl and Bill Donaldson. Raised on the family farm she was fortunate to always have many cousins and extended family live with her family. After university in Edmonton, Carole came to the Bulkley Valley as a teacher in 1967. She was going to stay one year before moving on. One year turned into 52, many great friendships, a husband, son, and granddaughter. She touched many lives through her teaching, business and volunteer roles in the community. Carole was a loving wife, caring mother and exceptional grandmother. She passed peacefully with her family by her side. She is going to be greatly missed and there are holes in many hearts with her passing. Carole is survived by her husband Ted, son David, daughter in law Kate and the apple of her eye, granddaughter Anna.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Marius Scholtz and all the nursing staff at BVDH for their loving care. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bulkley Valley Cancer Care Team or the Bulkley Valley Health Care & Hospital Foundation Cancer Fund. A celebration of life will be held July 19, 2019 at 3:30pm at the Paul Lychak - Evelyn Community Hall.
