Carol had a long and rewarding career in the Nanaimo Provincial Courts where she worked her way up through the ranks until she became a Justice of the Peace. She and Brian retired together in 2003 and began to travel the world.  They lived a privileged life and Brian always treated Carol like his little “Princess”.

Following the service, Carol and Brian's cremated remains will be interred, so they can be together again.
