I have always had fond memories of Carol. I lived on Mary St. and went to Dr.S.J. Phillips and then O.C.V.I. I spent many years skiing at Kirby where I was sure to see Carol. Oddly enough after spending many years away from Oshawa and getting married and having two children, I found myself skiing at the Oshawa ski club introducing my three year old Emma to the place I had spent my youth. Who should I meet there but Carol. We were in our forties and had a few laughs together. I will never forget that chance meeting and I will never forget her because we had grown up together. One thing I will always remember is that she was a very fast runner as a young girl and always did well at field day. Taken far too early.

The Townsends next door on Masson St. watched Carol grow from an adorable baby into a beautiful young lady. Ruth was Carol's godmother and at the age of 101 still recalls fond memories of Carol and all the Willson clan. sincerely Mary Townsend Clark, Leslie Townsend Joynt, Richard Townsend and Ruth Townsend.

I can't begin to tell everyone what a great friend Carol was to me. She had been a part of my life for 40 years! I have so many wonderful memories of her and I in our youth just having so much joy and laughter together. She was always trying to fix me, with the kindest of intentions and truly wanted me as a sister and I her. Even though we never did get the official designation, I always felt that connection. I spent many wonderful days at the family cottage in our youth and later as mothers with our children. We had alot of heart to heart conversations about the woes of life and I will miss that! There is a such a profound sadness knowing that she is gone. Rest in peace dear friend, I hope we meet again!

I was very sad to hear the news of Carol. She was a dear friend of many years. Our children grew up together in Whitby. We shared many laughs together and good times. My thoughts and prayers are with Ted, Lindsey and Braiden. Annie Senkowski

I carry many joyful memories from my childhood I can credit Carol for. She always welcomed me into her home and her family. I loved going to her home to play with Lindsey. She always included me in the family; taking me to the cottage, having me for sleepovers, decorating for Christmas, and many dances in the kitchen - mostly to Beach Boys I'm sure. Her and Ted even welcomed me into their home during a time of need. She was a bright light and she will be missed. I'll never, ever forget how much love she had for her children; her Little Lambs. Thinking of Lindsey, Braiden, and Ted xoxo

I was very sad to hear the news of Carol's passing. I have fond memories of her from Long Point. I spent a lot of time in my youth at the "end of the point" and she was always very welcoming and friendly to me. I am very sorry for your loss.
Sincerely,

Gone far too soon. Carol had a tremendous amount of love for her two incredible children, Lindsey and Braiden. Always ready with a warm smile or for a laugh that she crafted with her playful sense of humour. She will be missed by all of the hearts she touched.

The year was 1981, I was 13 years old and new to the Willson family. Carol walked up to me and said "what kind of books to you like to read?" I told her I didn't read books unless it was homework. She called me an idiot and said she was going to change that so I wouldn't grow up to be in ignorant fool.
I saw her a week later and she gave me a couple of books. The first was Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume and the other was Jonathan Livingston Seagull (JLS) by Richard Bach. I've read many books in my lifetime yet JLS is dearest to me and I've read it aloud to my own children. It all started with Carol caring enough to speak her mind and just wanted everyone to know.
Sleep with the angels.
Love,
Rick Taylor
