Every great story must have an ending that arrives too soon.
Carol Anne Weremy (Fennell) passed away peacefully on the morning of April 13, 2023 after a full life filled with love, laughter, joy, and happiness.
Carol was born in 1937, in her parents’ home (Henry and Gladys) near Naismith, SK, she was one of three daughters (Darleen, Carol, Joan) who were raised on a farm and attended a one room school house. She became a Registered Nurse in 1958, working 3 years in Red Deer, AB, before moving to Peace River, AB, where she met her soon to be husband Joe. Carol’s love of adventure took her to Europe in 1961. She was married to Joe 2 years later on June 15th, 1963. Five years after that, with 2 sons (Robert and Kevin), and a nursing career, they moved to Dawson Creek, B.C. and finally to Quesnel in 1969.
Carol started work at GR Baker Memorial Hospital and had her 3rd son (David) while building a life with her family in Quesnel. She was active and connected in the community of Quesnel but soon focused most of her energy on building a successful palliative care system within Quesnel with the help of many wonderful people and an immense outpouring of donations. In 2005, she was presented an award from the B.C.R.N.A. and in 2008 from the Registered Nurses Association of Canada for her work in Palliative Care. She spoke highly of the many people who were so instrumental in making the Palliative Care Association so successful.
Carol was predeceased by her parents, her sister Darleen, and her husband Joe. Carol leaves cherished memories to her sister (Joan), 3 sons, 3 step-daughters, 2 grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and many dear friends who will miss her kindness and generosity.
A Celebration of Life will be had at the Seniors Centre in Quesnel, on July 8, from 1-5. Speaking will begin at 2pm. Those who wish to speak at the event are asked to contact Kevin Weremy.
Her sons would like to have one last fundraiser for her favorite cause and ask that in lieu of gifts or flowers, donations to the Quesnel and District Palliative Care Association would be greatly appreciated.
