With great sadness we announce the passing of Carolyn Weymouth on Feb. 20, 2024, in Pincher Creek, Alta., after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.  She was 82 years of age.

Carolyn was born in London, Ont., on May 10, 1941, to parents Cliff and Hilda Handley.

Carolyn was an active individual who enjoyed the outdoors, sewing, knitting, a glass of wine, reading, and loved her cats and dogs. She was also very involved with horses, including training them as well as pleasure riding. She was a member of the Alberta Trail Riders Association and rode many years in the Ride Against Cancer in the early summer each year. Carolyn was even known to get out on the golf course in her younger days.

After graduating high school, Carolyn went to the University of Sarnia Nursing Academy from 1959 to 1962. She then moved to Winnipeg and worked at the Misericordia Hospital from 1962 to 1965. She then transferred to Edmonton Misericordia and worked there from 1965 until 1972.

Later she moved to the Onoway area and then to Alberta Beach. Carolyn and Ed then moved to Coleman, then to West Bank, B.C., and back to Coleman. Carolyn moved into Whispering Winds Village in Pincher Creek for her last few years.

She will be remembered with love and respect for a life well lived.

Carolyn leaves behind two sons: Jon (Kim) Thorsteinsson of Winnipeg, Man., and David (Dianna) Potter of Onoway, Alta.; one brother: Jim (Helen) Handley of London, Ont.; one stepdaughter: Sharon Weymouth of Edmonton, Alta.; two stepsons: Edwin (Barbara) Weymouth of Edmonton, Alta., and Don (Pat) Weymouth of Gunn, Alta.

Carolyn was predeceased by her parents, Cliff and Hilda Handley.

A celebration of life will be held for Carolyn on June 28, 2024, at 10:30 a.m. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 14929 20th Ave., Frank, Alta.

Memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by Canadian Cancer Society.

Arrangements entrusted to Snodgrass Funeral Homes.
