Carol May Tipton

May 21, 1954 - September 19, 2016


Carol was welcomed into the world in Enderby, BC, the daughter of Grace and Edgar Tipton. She passed away peacefully in a loving group home in Powell River at age 62 with her family around her. In 1954, children born with Down syndrome generally lived their lives in an institution, however, Carol was brought home to live with her family. Grace and Edgar could not imagine letting go of their special little girl and never regretted that decision for a minute. Carol brought love and joy to all who knew her. She was the youngest of five siblings and was predeceased by her parents and her eldest brother Nelson Tipton. Left to remember her with great love are her brother Brian Tipton and sisters Coranne Anderson and Lilla Tipton, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Special thanks to the staff at Crofton House, nieces Tannis and Tyra Thulin and Dawn Scheves and sisters-in-law Joke Polman Tuin and Eileen Brown for all the love and attention you gave to Carol in her final years. Friends are invited to Jean Pike Centre for Inclusion, 7055 Alberni Street, in the ARC Theatre at 11 am on Saturday, October 1, to help Carol’s family celebrate her life. We will share some memories and remember Carol, followed by a party with lots of food and music; Carol loved a party. Take note that singing and dancing will take place. We will dance with Carol to the end of love.
