I am at a loss for words, I loved Carol with all my heart. I am so sorry for this family's loss, and what a loss Carol will be not only to her family but her tons of friends that also loved and admired her, Carol had a heart of gold and tried to do anything for family and friends. I loved coming for a visit and having coffee with Carol, but with this virus out there, that wasn't in the books at this time. I will miss her smile, laughter, and caring, Carol was one of a kind. May God be with you during this difficult time

So sorry to hear this news! I was a teenager when my parents moved to 3 Flemingo Drive. Carol and John were my neighbours. Carol was always so kind often inviting me to share the pool. She was also my hairdresser for years! I remember her as always smiling! More recently, she has given me support as I deal with my own cancer journey! All my sympathies to Margaret, John, and the rest of her family as they grief her passing!

Sending heartfelt condolences to the entire Jouwsma family in the loss of a wonderful fun- filled lady with a heart of gold and a heartwarming laugh. I have so many great memories of our Halloween nights on her porch dressed in one of her many costumes. Rest In Peace dear lady.
