CAROL MARILYN CHARTRAND (published on February 09, 2009)

CAROL MARILYN CHARTRAND (nee FIDLER) 1948 - 2009 Peacefully on February 6, 2009, Carol lost her courageous battle with cancer. Mom was born September 29, 1948 and lived all her life in Oak Point. She attended elementary school in Oak Point and later high school at St. Laurent. After graduation from high school she completed a short data entry course and went to work immediately after at Air Canada where she worked until her marriage to Dave in 1974.She often commented to family and friends that her marriage was the best thing she had ever done in her life . Cory was born in 1976 and Myrna in 1981. Mom's family was her pride and joy and she loved to help them out however she could. Friends were always an important part of her life. She would spend hours on the phone speaking with friends and would always enjoy a good visit. She was a great listener and always had the time to help someone out if they called and needed some help with a specific question. If she could, she would help. Mom loved to tell stories of her earlier years when she was an avid curler. Many friendships were developed and continued from those years. She spent many hours making beautiful projects on her computer, doing yard work and going on road trips. It was nothing for her and Dave to just pick up on a Sunday and travel halfway across the province. Mom is survived by her loving husband and best friend Dave; son Cory and daughter Myrna; sister Sharon Fidler; many aunts; uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her grandparents Alex and Ada Angus and James and Sydney Fidler; her parents Mel and Frances Fidler; father-in- law Dave Chartrand; brother-in-law Doug Chartrand; many aunts, uncles and cousins. When Mom first found out the seriousness of her illness, she never gave up hope and fought till the end. She could always look around and see there were many a lot worse off than herself. She made it clear to her family and friends that she believed she had been blessed through life by having been raised by loving parents and later married happily to a wonderful man and two loving children. All her life she tried to do all the things that interested her and felt that she had accomplished all that and more. The family would like to give special thanks to the many friends who supported her and visited with her and helped make difficult days easier, nurses at CancerCare for all their caring and consideration over the past two years, Dr. Neil Burnet and the staff at Eriksdale Hospital for their excellent care and compassion over Mom's last days. Cremation has already taken place, with a memorial service to be held at MacKenzie Funeral Chapel, 433 Main Street, Stonewall on Wednesday, February 11 at 2:00 p.m. Interment to follow at Stonewall Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, if friends so wish, donations can be made to The Humane Society. MacKenzie Funeral Home Stonewall in care of arrangements.
