With heavy hearts, I announce the passing of Carol, September 16, 2020, at home in her sleep, with Brian by her side.
Carol was the middle child, born to Reg and Hilda McKeen on August 14, 1955 in Churchill, Manitoba.
Carol saw much of the world in her younger years, thanks to her dad, who was in the Army. Being very family oriented, always there for them, in good times, and not so good times. The McKeens settled in Charleswood where Carol joined Junior Achievement. Then at fifteen years of age, Carol met the love of her life and soul mate Brian. Very blessed to have spent fifty years together.
Predeceased by parents, Reg and Hilda McKeen and her very special "aunt Josie."
Carol is survived by husband Brian of Oakbank; sister Karen Ryan (Paul); brother Kenneth McKeen; nephew Kyle McKeen all of Calgary; in-laws, Rose and Emilien Bruneau, Fran and Gord Rudyk, Janice Leggett; nieces, Gae Rudyk and Suzann Rudyk-Munroe (Paul); nephew Christopher Leggett (Elaine); niece Caylene Leggett; great-nephews, Dakota Rudyk-Munroe, Rhylan Leggett and great-niece Brixlee Leggett.
Very special thanks to Rural Municipality of Springfield Home Care Services for their compassionate care of Carol.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Carol's memory to CancerCare Manitoba most appreciated.
Private service was held on Tuesday, September 22, 2020. "We'll Meet Again," "Don't Know Where," "Don't Know When." Love and Miss you Carol.
