Carol Ann Louise Hoesing

Carol passed away at Bastion Place in Salmon Arm, BC, with her family by her side, after a courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her daughter Melanie (Kael) Smith and daughter Rheanna Pudsey, grandchildren Caroline Pudsey, Skylar Pudsey, Michael Alexander and Chloe Smith as well as by her Kitty Cat Chloe.

Carol was born in Toronto, ON and after various locales, landed permanently in Salmon Arm 34 years ago. She earned her GED and graduated with a degree in Horticulture in 1989. She enjoyed nothing more than spending time in her garden. Carol also took pride in raising her grandchildren, Caroline and Skylar, being a loving and devoted Mother and caring for others. Those that knew her saw that she gave back at every opportunity.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Five Corners Pentecostal Church at 3160 10th Ave SE, Salmon Arm BC on October 18th, 2014 at 2 pm with food and refreshments to follow.

Donations may be made in lieu of flowers to the Food Bank or Salvation Army.

Many thanks to Dr. Joan Bratty, the care aides and nurses from the Community Care Home Support and the team at Bastion Place, for their compassion and support.
