Terry and Carol were married June 16 1963 at the family farm in Thedford. They moved to St. Marys in 1966 where Terry had accepted a position with the St. Marys PUC. They made their home in St. Marys where they raised their family. Carol loved to test her luck at the casinos and Bingo and was just as happy winning her chocolate bars at Wildwood as she was winning big money at the casino. Terry and Carol spent their retirement years traveling in their RV across Canada and spending the winters in Florida. Great memories were made on weekend family camping trips including a long trip out west with four young granddaughters.
Cremation has taken place and a family graveside memorial service will follow at a later date.
Thank you to Wildwood Care Centre and Dr. Gatfield for their care of Carol in recent years.
