At an early age she taught school in a one room school house in West Dalhousie, Annapolis County. She furthered her education at Acadia University where she took courses to obtain the equivalent of a bachelor of education and continued her teaching career at the schools in Annapolis Royal. Carole was a hard worker and instilled this in her children and students. She had a love for badminton and coached the high school team for several years. After Joe passed away, she found new and dear friends in Fort Myers, Florida, where she spent many winters with her “Florida Friends”. The family is most grateful to Dr. Ken Buchholz who was a doctor beyond belief in caring for our mom Carole. Also thanks to the many nurses and staff who made her final days so comfortable.
