Carole was a longtime employee at Empire Life as Manager of Group Underwriting. After retirement of 41 years her favorite past-times were gardening, doing crosswords, reading and of course she always made time for her family and grandchildren. She was an avid bowler with the Empire Life Bowling League and Hotel Dieu Mixed League for many years. Carole was a Blue Jays fan, was heavily involved as director of the Kingston Fall Fair for many years, and of course was her grandchildren's biggest fan and supporter as she always attended their activities.
