CARSON, Levina (Vi) Beatrice née Ladubec
August 30, 1928 – April 29, 2015
Born the youngest of twelve children to Ukrainian immigrant homesteaders in Pelly, Saskatchewan. Always a force to be reckoned with, she couldn’t wait to get started and was born in a taxi on the way to the hospital. Informed by her depression era youth she migrated east in her late teens to make a life in the big city of Toronto working at “The Bell” and later in insurance, marrying her first husband Harold Lesurf in 1954 and raising their daughter Debbie. Following his passing in 1974 she married Wesley Carson in 1982 and they moved to White Rock in 1992 to be near her family. Widowed again in 2000. This humble but determined prairie girl made the most of her nine lives, dodging many a health bullet and proudly saw much of the world in her travels. She was a caring friend to many, always finding a way to help or lead in community service. Recently her spirit was strong but her body was tired so she left her long and remarkable life reluctantly but at peace, with her family by her side. Survived by daughter Debbie (Bruce), grandsons Davis, Taylor, and Lewis and cherished nieces Chicky, Susie, and Leslie in Ontario. We deeply miss our amazing “Vi”, Aunt Niney, and G’ma but it was her time. Our sincerest thanks to the wonderful staff at Peace Arch Hospital Hospice who so eased our way. Memorial Tea at Whitecliff on Saturday May 23rd from 2:30pm to 4:00pm.
