SAUNDERS, Carole [nee Glenny] September 13,1935 - June 24, 2020. Carole passed peacefully in her sleep at North York Hospital on Wednesday June 24, she was 83 years old. Carole was born in Montreal Quebec to David and Agnes Glenny and is survived by her husband Donald of 62 years. She will be sorely missed by her sons, Lance, Scott and Christopher and as the beloved grandmother to Mackenzie, Cole, Reese and Sloan. She is lovingly remembered by her sisters, Eileen and Beverly and by her sister Dorothy and brother Clifford who predeceased her . She was a favorite aunt to many nieces and nephews. Carole was especially fond of her daughters in law, Suzanne, Nadine, and Monique who became more like cherished daughters themselves. While she grew up, worked, married and had her family in Montreal she moved to Toronto in 1976 with her husband, Donald and her three boys. She loved to read, cook, and spend time in her garden. Her house was always filled with love and many memorable family occasions were hosted in her home, and there was always room for one more of her children’s friends who would surprisingly show up around mealtimes. She loved to travel and had many enjoyable trips to Africa, Europe, USA, Asia, and across Canada. However she was always happiest to return home to spend time with her family and check on how well her flowers were doing. As a great cook and baker she passed on many recipes to her sons and daughter in laws who will lovingly remember her every time they sit down to a plate of Spaghetti and meatballs with spareribs, chocolate chip cookies, or her ‘ Uncle Ross’ cake. While in the last year or so, Parkinson’s had started to physically slow her down a bit it never diminished her spirit, gentleness, grace, and love for her family. To say she will be missed is to understate her impact as a spouse, mother, aunt, sibling and loving grandmother.

Don and family: I learned today that one of my favourite aunts passed away two weeks ago. Karen and I are so saddened. We had some wonderful times with her and Don,Christmases in Montreal, our stay after our trip to New England, the pig roast in Toronto and our more recent stay in 2007. So glad I had a chance to talk to her in February.
She was a kind and gentle soul, loved by all who knew her.
Lovingly.....Brian & Karen

Uncle Don, Lance, Scott and Chris,
My deepest sympathy and prayers to you and your family, Aunty Carole will deeply be missed by all the lives she touched. I will always remember her for her beautiful smile and infectious laugh. She was a wonderful, kind woman who always made everyone feel so welcome. All the Christmases we spent together at your house and all the mouthwatering meals she lovingly prepared are memories that I will always cherish. Her greatest legacy is the wonderful children she raised…I know she was so very proud of all of you.
Heaven has added an Angel. Sending you prayers for peace and comfort in the days ahead.
Love,
Colleen

Carole was my beloved aunt, confidante and ally. A woman of grace, humour and warmth, she was such a welcoming hostess who made entertaining thirty or forty people seem effortless. Carole was always impeccably dressed and so much fun, generous of heart and a reliable source of great advice . She meant a great deal to so many people and will be much missed by all of us.

I have many very fond memories of Carole. She was kind to me for all my life. Such a good person, such a good mother, such a good sister, such a good aunt. She will be very much missed by all of us who were lucky enough to know her.

Auntie Carole was kind, welcoming, feisty, and generous with a great sense of humor and style. I so loved my visits to Toronto and my stays at her and Uncle Don's beautiful house when I'd come up to visit with my mother. One year in particular, she, my mother and I went to visit Montreal by train for a few days. It was a great trip that I will always look back on; traveling with two Glenny girls. :) She will be missed terribly by so many; particularly her family whom she loved so much.

Hello Saunders folks; Carole was a favorite aunt for all of us and over the years we always looked forward to spending time with her during family events and celebrations. When speaking with her, she was attentive, gracious, caring, very funny and always young. We are sad to think that we will not walk into the next family event and find her there. Love to all. Neil, Deborah, Mary Clare, Blair and families.

Very sad to hear of Auntie Carole's passing. So many fond memories of Auntie Carole and Uncle Don over the years and the many laughs that they always brought to the occasion. I also remember Uncle Don finding some way to get my mom and dad into business class on so many flights - like movie stars! Also remember a few trays of those small liquor bottles that you could only get on airlines showing up for the annual St Patrick's Day festivities at Avonwick Gate. A very very special lady and a dear dear friend of all of us but especially my mom. God bless. David and Kathleen
