She held many jobs throughout her life, including running Carol’s Lunch on Mill Street in Elora. Sandy and Carol were active members of the local 229 Legion Branch and Women’s Auxiliary. She also volunteered her time at the Wellington Terrace and was a member of local Al-Anon groups. Sandy and Carol enjoyed traveling, including trips to Florida, Scotland and the Rockies. Carol loved spending time with family and friends, and will be remembered for her infectious laugh, how she loved to share jokes, and watched her kids, grandkids and great grandkids in their various sports, plays and extra curricular activities. Carol also loved to play cards, games and often attended bible study at Knox Presbyterian Church in Elora. She loved a good coffee or tea with family and friends, made some amazing shortbread and knitted many a facecloth for family members at Christmas. Arrangements are entrusted to Graham A.
