OBITUARY

Carole Diane Moore

December 17, 1948February 7, 2020

It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of Carole Diane Moore on Friday, February 7, 2020. Carole passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones after a sudden and short illness.

Carole is survived by her loving husband Gord, sons Geoff (Morgan) and Greg (Laura), sister Linda, brothers Murray (Betty) and Lorne (Wendy), and her cherished grandchildren Charlie, Penny, Avery and Lucy.

Carole was born to Fred and Blanche Green (nee Wall) in Melfort, Saskatchewan. After growing up in Melfort, she moved to Saskatoon to pursue a nursing career. In the last graduating class at Saskatoon City Hospital, she graduated as a Registered Nurse (RN) in 1969. Later, she obtained a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the University of Calgary. Carole met the love of her life, Gord in Saskatoon and married in 1970. They eventually settled in Calgary, started a family and she continued her 35 year career as a nurse. Carole had an incredible nurturing, supportive and loving spirit. She would go to great lengths to support family and friends in times of need, often dropping everything to ensure she could provide a helping hand. Her unbounded energy and quick wit were infectious. Carole was truly the glue in her family. Family benefited, and will continue to benefit from her unstoppable desire to ensure everyone was having fun, fulfilled, happy and loved.

Carole was a terrific wife and mom to her boys. She enjoyed skiing and golf with her family and loved getting in the old motor home and finding new places to camp in the mountains and on the coast. She especially enjoyed annual summer vacations to Waskesiu, Saskatchewan. In retirement, she loved to travel and see the world with her husband, Gord. She enjoyed many cruises and long road trips in their RV. Carole loved the ocean, eventually owning a seaside property for many years in Parksville, B.C. However, no place brought her more joy than her frequent trips to Maui. Later in life, she developed a skill for painting, filling her Parksville property with many of her works. She enjoyed creating paintings for her boys and grandchildren.

Of all of Carole’s many interests and loves, nothing came close to the passion she had for her family, especially her grandchildren. Grandma absolutely adored Charlie, Penny, Avery and Lucy. She would strive constantly to ensure they were happy and having fun. Visits and sleepovers to Grandma’s were the grandchildren’s favourite activity and eagerly anticipated. Regular family dinners will be greatly missed.

Special thanks to the doctors and nurses in Unit 61 at the Foothills Hospital, particularly Dr. Walker, Dr. Murthy and nurses Lauren, Charles and Shola.

In lieu of any flowers to the family, we ask that a donation be considered in Carole’s name to the Lung Association, Alberta & NWT. P.O. Box 4500, Station South, Edmonton, AB, T6E 6K2. www.ab.lung.ca.

An open house to celebrate Carole’s life will be held at the Calgary Winter Club, 4611 - 14th Street NW, Calgary, AB on Thursday, February 20 beginning at 5:30 pm.

I was so saddened to hear of Caroles passing. I have so many memories of Carole when Greg and Bruce were such good buddies in elementary school. My deepest condolences to Gord and family.

Gord & Family,
Loyd and I are devastated by your news that Carole has passed away. I suspect she was not well when we decided to make a visit to Calgary for our family birthday celebrations. We will always treasure the time we spent with both of you in Calgary, Arizona, Europe, Vancouver Island, and all of our group camping vacations. Carole was the life of the party and we all loved her sense of humour. She will be greatly missed by all of us.

Gord and family- My friend, we are with you in our thoughts and in our prayers at this time. Even though the miles and time may separate, the memories of growing up together and sharing so much can not change the many fond memories that we were able to share. Till we meet again, our Love for you and your family. Rick and Ann Yano

Our eldest daughter Morgan is married to Geoff, Carole and Gord’s eldest son. We did not meet Carole and Gord until just before the wedding! But it was instantly apparent to me and my husband Chris that this was a great family to be marrying! Carole was so funny, telling us hilarious stories about her boys when they were young. And so generous always, inviting us to their home in Calgary every time we could possibly get there. It is impossible to believe at this moment that the next time we visit Alberta there won’t be any get together with Carole and Gord.
Thank you to Carole for being such a loving and supportive mother in law to our daughter and such a generous and loving grandmother to our granddaughters Penny and Lucy. Thank you also Carole for being such a caring and open hearted friend.
