BRUCE, Margaret Carol McLaren

Passed away on July 12, 2021 at 83 years of age in Guelph. Predeceased by her beloved husband Jack and remembered lovingly by her children Lesley and David (Chernos), John and Heather, and Paul and Kristen and as an adored Gran by Naomi, Mattie, Betsy, Alex, Charlotte, Kaleigh and Emily. Carol treasured her Prairie roots in Roland, Manitoba and the love of her parents, Jim and Margaret, her brother Wayne, and her many cousins who remained life-long friends. A proud graduate of the University of Manitoba, she was fundamentally the teacher she became, approaching every task with a clear method to achieve her highest standards. Carol believed firmly in choosing her own destiny while acknowledging the good fortune of loving family and friends. Baking, bridge, and tailoring were all skillfully mastered and all games were competitively played. She embraced the joys of travel with Jack and celebrations with new and old friends, including those of her children. Her grandchildren delighted in tea parties with her while she equally delighted in following their achievements. Her bright eyes energized every room and our lives. Please remember our bright, beautiful and beloved and loving Carol, our Mom, our Gran, as we all blessedly return to unhesitatingly embracing our loved ones. For her part, we know that somehow Carol is once again dancing in perfect harmony around the kitchen with her adored and adoring Jack. Our family will celebrate the well-lived life of Carol at a later date and your thoughts are gratefully appreciated.
