Carol Irene Chiborak
December 10, 1943 – February 4, 2020
On February 4, 2020, with family by her side, Carol passed away peacefully at age 76 years at the Simkin Centre Personal Care Home in Winnipeg after a brief struggle with Dementia. Carol will be sadly missed by her husband of 56 years, Marshall, sons Michael (Theresa), Darren (Jodi), Bradley (Cathy), grandchildren Delaney, Layne, Destyni, Sydnee, Logan and great granddaughter Alayna. Carol was predeceased by her parents Norris and Irene Dupuis.
Carol worked as a receptionist for Federated Co-op. After retiring in 1997 she continued her friendships with co-workers and regularly attended the retirees monthly breakfast or luncheons.
Carol loved travelling to such places as Jamaica, Mexico, Arizona and even the weekend trip to Fargo, N.D. She enjoyed the cottage life at Lee River where she ritually took her daily walks with her dog Spuds, and couldn’t wait for family and friends visits in both the summer and winter.
Carol valued any chance she could get to babysit and have the grandchildren and her great granddaughter over for a visit. They were the only ones ever allowed to walk into the house with their shoes on or rip the sheets off the bed to make tents in her bedroom.
Carol will be remembered for her beautiful smile, great sense of humor, positive outlook on life and her willingness to lend a helping hand to those in need. She was an inspiration and blessing, leaving those who knew her with many warm memories to cherish.
The family would like to take this opportunity to thank Abigail and the wonderful staff at Simkin Centre 2 for the special care they provided for Carol.
A celebration of life will take place on Saturday, February 29, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Gilbart Reception Centre located at 309 Eveline Street. Selkirk, Manitoba.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Society of Manitoba, 120 Donald St, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 4G2.
