Daggitt, Carol. After a two and a half year battle with metastasized breast cancer of the spine, Carol Daggitt (49), passed away peacefully, surrounded by family and friends.
Carol was first diagnosed with breast cancer in March of 2007 and after a year of chemo and radiation she was cancer free for nearly 5 years only to find out it metastasized to her spine in 2011. Carol fought with everything she had until the very last day, and was an inspiration to many people in her community. Carol grew up in Prince George, BC with her parents and sister. This is where she was to later meet her husband of 25 years, Randy. After graduating with a degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Alberta, she moved to Victoria, BC to be with her husband and begin her professional career. Shortly after their two children, Hailey and Hayden were born the family moved to South Surrey where they built a home together. Carol was a geriatric physiotherapist at Peace Arch Hospital until 2011 and had a very fulfilling career allowing her be close to home and spend time with her kids. Even during her worst days Carol was the rock of the family, always making sure that everyone else was taken care of. She loved spending time at Crescent Beach, at her cabin on the lake, playing Scrabble, watching hockey, riding her bike, and traveling. She truly defined the term “go-getter”. Carol is leaving behind her loving husband, Randy; her two children, Hailey and Hayden; her mother Joyce Nystrom (late Sidney of White Rock, BC); sister Arlene Flynn (husband Bob of Kamloops, BC) and her beloved dog Skip, who never left her side. Carol was very close with her husband’s family including his father Rae Daggitt (late Sharon Daggitt, of Quesnel, BC) and his two sisters Tammy Ballendine (husband Danny, of Quesnel, BC) and Shelley Pederson (husband Michael of Campbell River, BC) as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and close friends. Donations can be made to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in her name.
