Carolina M. Gordon. (Nee: McElroy).
Born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, my lovely bride of forty four years passed away on Sunday, November 10th, as I held her hand, looked into her eyes and told her I loved her with all my heart and would love her forever. She then closed her eyes and passed from this life to rest forever. She was not only devoted to me in our marriage, but was a patient and loving mother, to our daughter Angela, she was also a grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt and true friend to all who knew her. For thirty years she worked in the Bank of Montreal, first in Langley and later at Cloverdale, Surrey Place, Kings Cross, Ocean Park and finally in the head office in Metrotown. She was liked and respected by her colleagues and by management alike for her dedication and was awarded a long service recognition plaque for her loyalty. She was a wonderful knitter and made numerous sweaters, baby clothes etc., for friends and family alike and she donated many items to good will. She was an avid reader also and enjoyed curling up with a good book or sometimes watching her favourite programs on the television. Her passion for the last seven years or so was Lego building bricks and we bought and sold numerous sets and pieces online and she wanted me to continue this when she was gone. In the last days of her life she was cared for by kind and patient staff at Peace Arch Hospice and I am eternally grateful to them for their efforts to make her as comfortable as possible. I thank Dr. Amrish Joshi and Dr. Balvinder Johal, for their efforts, also Dr. Robert Cheyne for his many years of care. Also Christine, Ceci and all the staff at the home support office in White Rock. I thank all those friends and neighbours who sent me condolences and offered their support at this sad time. A memorial will be announced in the near future and all who wish to attend are welcome to pay their last respects to a much loved and greatly missed woman. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society as Carol has requested this. “I want to spend every day of forever loving you, my angel, rest in peace”. Your Loving Husband Always: Ian.
