At 14, she met Jake at a baseball game. After their wedding, they lived 2 years in Winnipeg, then farmed near Elm Creek, Man. Carol loved life. Her jobs included Woolco, Heritage Bookstore, Newton Enterprises, CIBC and Creative Memories. She volunteered for 4-H, figure skating and the manor board. Carol invested in people through Sunday school and midweek clubs, and by being a youth sponsor and church greeter. She always had her camera ready. She attended as many of her grandchildren’s activities as possible. Carol enjoyed sewing, knitting, scrapbooking, camping, snowmobiling, gardening and watching baseball. Kind and compassionate, she had a huge heart for people.
