CAROL ANN LOVERIDGE
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of Carol Loveridge. She lived her last days resting peacefully at the St. Boniface Hospital with family at her bedside.
Carol lived a full life. She loved to support the Arts in both her work and her free time. In Toronto, she worked at Tarragon Theatre and the Writers Development Trust Fund, both organizations that support community play writers. During those years she was also politically active, attending demonstrations and fundraising events to support and promote issues of child care availability and equal pay for equal work. When she relocated to Winnipeg, to help her daughter and to be closer to her grandchildren, she continued to be active in both the arts community, and the community she lived in, through her work and her volunteer activities. She volunteered with the Nine Circles Board of Directors and regularly attended plays, concerts, art shows and other community events. She completed her career as the Director of the Occupational Health Centre where she showed compassion for the people she worked with and the community she served.
In her retirement, she enjoyed both the city and the country, and was often found reading and sunbathing in a beach chair - on her front porch in the city and on the beach at the cottage. Carol walked kilometres around Winnipeg’s downtown, from her home, to her office, to local restaurants and coffee shops, as well as her local Library. She was an avid reader and always kept her living room full of new mystery hard covers, preferably by Canadian authors. Carol loved being a part of the communities in which she lived. She was incredibly welcoming and would make friends with those around her community. Her acceptance, good wishes, and generosity for all will be remembered by those who knew her.
There are many of us who love Carol, and her memory will be cherished by her brothers; Lloyd and Stuart, her daughter Deborah, grandchildren Sarah, Simon and Rosalie, and great grandson, Tyson.
Carol left this world a little bit brighter through her goodwill and kindness. Goodbye and thank you ‘Bana’, you will be forever in our hearts.
We will be officially celebrating Carol’s life on Saturday, April 7th from 2pm - 4pm at the Scandinavian Cultural Centre, 764 Erin St. Winnipeg, MB.
