DRISCOLL, Carol
We have lost a powerful life force. Carol DRISCOLL died on Sunday, March 19, having lived and loved life to the fullest - often times against tremendous odds. Carol shared life with an expansive circle of Friends to whom she was a constant joy and inspiration. Many of them were blessed to share in her last days and hours. Carol was a proud Irish Montrealer, the beloved daughter of Catherine (née DOYLE) and Gordon DRISCOLL and loving sister of Don, all of whom predeceased her. Carol is survived by her nephews Kevin (Deanne), Brian, and Mark. She started work at Bell Canada while still in her teens. There she worked for over 30 years, primarily as a valued and respected executive assistant to a number of senior executives. Carol built a highly successful career and forged many life-long Friendships during her career at Bell. She was, in many ways, the very heart of Stentor. Carol lived with rheumatoid arthritis from the age of three. This didn't prevent her from leading a full and rich life, travelling the world and engaging in many athletic and cultural pursuits. Nor did it stop her from pursuing higher education (B.A., Sir George Williams University) or contributing to the community through charitable work. She worked hard at living. She confronted her illness, the pain it caused and the demands for frequent surgery it imposed with a unique combination of courage, optimism, grace, and humour that amazed and inspired all those who knew and loved her. She was abetted in this by a team of dedicated medical professionals whom she also counted as dear Friends, most notably Doctor Murnaghan, Dr. Saginur and Doctor Kraag. She was also recently blessed with a team of compassionate surgeons, doctors, and nurses at the Ottawa Hospital, Civic campus, to whom heartfelt thanks are extended. Carol will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all those whose lives she touched and were privileged to call her friend, especially Lynn Francoeur, Gabrielle Boisclair, and Maureen McEvoy who were particularly devoted and kept the network of Friends together. Farewell dear friend… your undaunted optimism is our great legacy. Friends may visit at the West Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 150 Woodroffe Avenue at Richmond Road, Ottawa on Thursday, March 23 at 10: 00 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass at Our Lady of Fatima Roman Catholic Church, 153 Woodroffe Avenue at 11: 30 a.m. Donations in Carol's memory to the Ottawa Hospital departments of Orthopedics or Rheumatology - or to the Montreal Shriners Hospital in lieu of flowers would be greatly appreciated.
