Life has always been a gift

Carol Jean Livesey of New Westminster, BC passed away peacefully on Friday February 19th, 2021, in the loving care of the wonderful staff at the Victoria Hospice on Vancouver Island. Her last hours included time with her niece Tracey listening to music by Garth Brooks. In the current times we feel fortunate and blessed to have had the opportunity to be there with our Aunt Carol and know she is now at peace.

Carol was born in Nelson, BC on July 24th, 1943, to James and Marian Livesey. Carol is survived by her brother in-law, John (Jack) Paine, (Margaret, Carol’s sister passed in 2015); niece Laurie Bullis of Prince George, niece Tracey (Nick) Szirth of Qualicum, and nephew Ian (Lori) Paine of Edmonton; seven great nephews and nieces: Dale (Cara), Kellie, Paige, Nicole, Jack, Alec and Kerran; and great-great nieces Lilly and Ayda; and great-great nephew Dax.

Carol loved life and family and was a very social and independent woman. She was a loyal long-time employee of Army and Navy Department Stores in New Westminster, dedicated her role for 30 years! Her other passions included her beloved cats over the years; always great company while enjoying music of the country flavor; bowling, cards and socializing. Her stories were amazing and her humor one of a kind. We will all miss her presence greatly.

The family is eternally grateful for the wonderful care and support provided by Senior Services Society – New Westminster, the doctors and staff of the Royal Columbian Hospital, the Fraser and Vancouver Island Health Care Teams, BC Cancer-Surrey, and the true angels at Victoria Hospice. Thank you for your extraordinary caring in this unprecedented time.

Memorial donations to the Victoria Hospice Society and the BC Cancer Foundation are appreciated.
