September 25, 1920-June 22, 2003
In her sleep, Sunday June 22, 2003, Mom left this world for the next, leaving behind all those who loved her dearly.
Left to mourn her passing are her daughter Karin (Garth), sons John (Cindy) and Harold (Kathy) and grandchildren jason, Brandi, Erin and Andrew. Also left to mourn her passing are many relatives and friends.
She was predeceased by her husband, Harold Sr., her parents Louise and Oscar Carlson, infant brother Arthur Carlson, brother Stan Carlson and grandson Curtis Hayberg. Mom was also predeceased by her good friend Virginia Johnson.
Born and raised in Kenora, Mom had a great love for this area and the lake she grew up on. She was an avid gardener, taking pride in the beautiful roses that were always blooming in her front yard. Mom loved and treasured her family, but her greatest pride and joy were her
grandchildren. She was truly a wonderful mother in every sense of the word. She shared in the joys of our accomplishments and never wavered to support us in our times of need. We were truly blessed to have her as our mother. She was a very caring and giving person, always there for family, friends and neighbours when the need arouse. Mom was a very special person, always taking the time to touch other people's lives in a positive way. She never complained and always had a smile for everyone There are so many wonderful things that we could say about Mom and these few words do not come close to describing the great lady she was.
The family would like to thank the staff at Birchwood Terrace for taking care of Mom. We would especially like to thank family friends Rosemary, Linda and Patsy for their numerous visits with Mom. You brought a lot of joy into her life.
Please join us to say goodbye and to celebrate her life on Thursday, June 26, 2003 at 2:00 p.m. at Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice in Mom's name.
You can only have one mother,
loving, kind and true.
No other friend in all the world
will be so true to you.
for all her loving kindness,
she asked nothing in return.
If all the world deserted us,
to our mother we could turn.
For those of you who have a mother,
treasure her with care,
For you will never know her value,
till you see she is not there.
To hear her voice, to see her smile,
to sit and talk with her a while,
To be together in the same old way,
would be our dearest wish today.
Love you forever, love you always.
We will miss you Mom.
