August 23, 1942 – February 18, 2013
Carmen Faith Simpson passed away peacefully on February 18, 2013 surrounded by her loved ones.
Carmen is survived by her loving husband Harold, her three children: Dinah Canart (Daryle), Bobbie-Jo Borgen, and Lloyd Orosz (Char), and her five grandchildren: Lindsy, Cory, Michelle, Jayde and Kennedy. She was predeceased by her first husband, Harvey Schiewe and her son Darell (Lois).
Carmen will forever be remembered by her loved ones as an amazing mother and extraordinary grandmother. Her legacy to them includes a positive attitude, a generous spirit and zest for life. The gift of time was something Carmen always offered, whether it was towards people, a community or even someone she didn’t know.
Carmen loved life. She enjoyed sharing her love for it through her cooking baking and canning, and she always had room for one more at the table. She loved to travel and camp, and enjoyed spending her later years gallivanting around, or gold mining and relaxing in Arizona with Harold and their dog Sassy. Her love of animals is a memory her grandchildren will hold close to their hearts.
Her family and friends remember with fondness that she loved to laugh, always found the good in everyone and everything, and always pointed out the “silver lining”. They will miss her bubbly personality, unique outlook on life and her comforting words.
The family would like to thank the compassionate staff at the Elk Valley Hospital.
A celebration of life will take place on Saturday May 18, 2013 at @2 PM at the Baynes Lake Community Hall.
