Carol Anne Drezdoff (Humphreys) passed away at Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm, BC on Friday January 9th, 2015 at the age of 71 years.
Carol was born in Tisdale, SK on June 24th, 1943 to Frank and Muriel Humphreys. As a young adult, she left Saskatchewan and eventually settled in Vancouver, where she met her husband, George Drezdoff. They lived nearly 25 years in Burnaby before retiring to the Shuswap area. They were season ticket holders of the Vancouver Canucks for 18 years, and Carol was the most dedicated of all fans. Hockey was her passion and even when she was sick in the hospital, she was still keeping tabs on her team and also on Team Canada’s up and coming hockey stars.
Carol was predeceased by George, her husband of 33 years; brothers Delmar and Jack Humphreys; brother-in-law Maurice Schell and both parents. She is survived by her siblings Lois (Don Donaldson) of Nepean, ON; Orlah Schell of Tisdale, SK; Don (Anne) of Tisdale, SK; Norma (Norman Tyacke) of Oliver, BC; Betty (Gary Stoker) of Tisdale, SK; Linda (Dan Richards) of Springside, SK and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and three great-great-nieces.
As per Carol’s request, a private family ceremony will take place in Tisdale at a later date.
The family would like to thank Dr. Heunis, Dr. Main, and the staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital for their kind and compassionate care. Carol wanted to thank her friends and neighbours in the Shuswap Lake area for their help and support over the years since George’s passing.
If so desired, contributions in memory of Carol may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Box 3451, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4S2 or the Canadian Diabetes Association, Box 1056, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4P2.
