Carol Jean Pritchard

July 18, 1927 - December 12, 2019


Carol Jean (Cotton) Pritchard, passed peacefully on December 12, 2019.  She was born  July 18, 1927 in McAlester, Oklahoma. She was amazed and proud to state that she was 92. Her family and friends will miss her dearly and are comforted knowing Carol is with her Lord and the love of her life, Ken Pritchard.

Carol met Ken Pritchard from Powell River, B.C while he was studying Engineering in Tulsa Oklahoma. They were married on Oct 15, 1950. Kens’ career in Oil & Gas took the young couple to Calgary Alberta, where they raised their family and lived for over 40 years, until they retired to Powell River in 1994. Carol lost her dear Ken to complications of Parkinson’s in 2002. Her strength of character and unshakable faith these past 17 years saw Carol enjoying life in her home by the sea with her family and friends.

Carol may have been small in stature but will be remembered as a very gracious lady in heart and spirit. Once you met Carol you would always remember her giggle, voice, and knew she loved the color blue in fashion and décor.  She enjoyed the many gifts of the arts; music, painting and design.  Carol embraced her life’s work of raising three children and loving her 6 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

Carol is survived by her three children and spouses, Daughter – Patti and Shaun Coburn (Powell River), Daughter – Judi and Warren Spencer (Seattle, Washington), Son – Ken and Kathie Pritchard (Powell River); Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren, Scott Coburn, Kirk and Faye Coburn with Wyatt and Walker Coburn; Sandra and Matthew Russell with Winter Russell; Dan and Kelsie Murray with Maple Murray; Krystal and Jesse McDonald with Matthew and Hannah McDonald; Kris Pritchard and Lindsay Guest with Kolton Pritchard.

Mom/GranGran/Great GranGran, you are deeply loved and will remain in our hearts forever. Carol wanted everyone to know, “I have had a wonderful life and thank you to all who made it so. The Lord is now calling me home.” Our sincere thanks to Carol’s care givers whose assistance allowed Carol to stay in her beautiful home until days prior to her passing: Powell River Home Care Services, VCH Home Support and her private care angels; Kitty Clemens, Karen Ogilvie and Jeanette Leclerc, and to Dr. Watson for her continuous care.

Carol always looked forward to the Christmas season and it’s true meaning. Let us rejoice with her. Come celebrate the season of Carol’s life on Friday, December 20, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. Westview Baptist Church. Reception to follow at the church. Gravesite service at 1:30pm, Cranberry Cemetery.
