Carole Diane Passenger

January 5, 1941 - January 16, 2011


Passed away peacefully in her home Monday January 17, 2011, aged 70 years. Predeceased by her loving parents Gordon and Muriel Turner. She was survived briefly by her loving husband Bill, and by her beloved son Paul.
My beautiful mother was born on January 5, 1941, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She soon came to British Columbia as a young child, first living in Ladner, and then moving to Powell River, where she graduated high school at Max Cameron School in 1959. She soon moved to Vancouver, where she worked as a secretary. She gave birth to me, Paul, in 1967 and moved back to Powell River shortly afterwards. She married her husband Bill in 1971, and we lived south of Powell River ever since. She lived in her home ever since then, and it was her sanctuary. She stayed home and raised her family without complaint. She worked part-time outside of the home to help support the family. As I moved away from home to make my way, she was ever supportive of all of my endeavours whatever they may have been. She continued to be supportive until the end, no matter what I was involved with.
Thank you to Dr. Toole, Dr. Takhar and Dr. Hoffert, and all other health care professionals here in Powell River and Vancouver who were so helpful to her during her trying last year.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Powell River SPCA would be greatly appreciated. Service to be held on Friday, January 28 at 1 pm at the Westview United Church.
“Mum, you were my best friend, my one and only, my confidante, and my rock. I will always remember how strong and brave you were when overcoming adversity of any kind. You made my life worthwhile, and I can only hope I gave you as much happiness as I could. I love you more than anything. You will always be my best girl.” Love, your son, Paul
