Carol Lindsay of Blenheim passed away at the Chatham-Kent Hospice on Thursday April 22, 2021. She was the much loved and dedicated mother of Linda Lindsay, John Lindsay and Fred Lindsay (Karolyn Kohajda) and grandmother of Ben Cowen.
Carol was born 83 years ago to her parents Roy & Gladys (Haskell) Clark. She was one of three children and is survived by her sister Patricia Dodman. She was predeceased by her sister Marjorie Scott and her brother Private Lloyd Frederick Clark. She will be remembered by many nieces and nephews.
To remember Carol well is to remember a lady with sheer determination to make the best out of life even when it threw curve balls at you. She did whatever it took to raise a family on her own and at the same time to make everyone she met feel like they were important. She could carry on a conversation about anything and was always excited to let you know what was going on in John’s life. She walked wherever she needed to go and never complained. She was a mentor to many people over her lifetime, having babysat many of her nieces and nephews. Her friends were important to her and she looked forward to playing cards (and getting away with cheating sometimes) with some long time and faithful companions. So grab your coffee cup, a deck of cards and your loved ones and honour Carol with a resounding game of pepper or euchre.
In light of the current restricitons and keeping in mind that Carol never liked a lot of fanfare, her family has chosen to respect her wishes and remember her privately. She will be laid to rest with her Mom.
