I am lucky to have known my mother in law Carol despite the distance. Between our 3 trips to Canada and Carol visiting us here in Australia twice, and many phone conversations, we have wonderful memories. Lots of laughs, stories shared and of course our love of music. I will never forget my first telephone conversation with Carol. She sang an old Australian folk song "Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree", I was amazed that this woman in Canada knew this song we sang in primary school down under. I got to return the favour and sing it to her many years later when we last visited her at The Maple view home. I always enjoy listening to Barbs stories of growing up and how close she was to her mum even from the other side of the world. My heart goes out to the entire family. Here is a photo I took of Carol and Pat on A New Years Eve in Melbourne, Australia

I am so grateful that I was able to spend time with Carol when she visited Australia on two occasions. We had a lovely weekend getting to know each other in Daylesford, Victoria, attending a Highland gathering listening to music and watching the Scottish dancing. She was happy that my son Darren and her daughter Barbara found each other married and have two wonderful children Jack & Candace. Carol enjoyed meeting my family in the Xmas of 2003 she even compared my house to their one in Parkdale Drive saying it had large rooms and a big yard. I am sure her family must have lots of happy memories growing up there. My deepest sympathy to Carols family especially Barb Darren Jack & Candace here in Australia. Love Laraine Roach

I’d like to acknowledge significant achievements of my mother, Carol, and her contributions to the music society of Sault Ste. Marie. She became a permanent member of the Sault Symphony Orchestra in 1972 and volunteered her services for many years. Carol also studied music at Algoma University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts/Music in 1988. Well done Mom!

You will be missed by the musical community.
My condolences to the family.
