Carolyn McGarvey (Nee Pearase)
November 11, 1955 to December 31, 2020
It is with great sadness our family announces the passing of Carolyn Joan McGarvey. She was 65 years young. Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Carolyn was a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to many. She passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospital after a difficult battle with cancer that she fought with courage and grace.
Dedicated, Strong and Brave, Carolyn worked as a nurse for over 10 years, caring greatly for her patients, her co-workers, and the work she did.
Carolyn is survived by her four children Sean (Amy), Ben (Laura), Alana (Nathan), and Aaron (Taryn); four grandchildren Jacob and Evan (Sean and Amy), Jordan and Micah (Alana and Nathan); Brother Neil; sister-in-law Linda; niece Erin; nephew Scott; as well as many beloved friends. Carolyn was predeceased by her parents Buck and Georgina, and son Bryan.
The family would like to thank the Doctors and Palliative Care Team for their excellent support, as well as a special thank you to Kate and Bruce for their compassionate and loving care.
A celebration of life will be held later due to current Pandemic restrictions. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
