Caroline Harrison, a unique obituary for a special person written by her daughter. 

Dear Mom, 

     The song ‘Sweet Caroline’ is your favorite just as you were a favorite person to many. You were so dear to those who knew you not only because of your delicious cooking, amazing green thumb and sharp sense of humour (which several people have commented on and described using various similar adjectives) but also for your many other wonderful qualities that now are comforting memories. Taking up golf in your later years and scoring ‘a hole in one’ plus your many victories achieved while playing bingo enhanced your personality.  

     Recently it made me very sad to realize that I would never again be enjoying your cooking. Although you have shared recipes with me, I think you left out a secret ingredient because your cooking was always the best by far. I never had a green thumb, so all my plants are plastic. I get my own jokes, even though I may be the only one laughing at them.

     However, although I did not inherit your talents I definitely am your biological daughter and have proof in the pictures. I can only hope I share your beauty and amazing strength, which was so admirable and allowed everyone to enjoy more time with you. 

     Your favorite plant was the bleeding heart. Now my heart, along with those of many other family and friends, is bleeding over losing you.  May you rest in peace.  You will always be missed and forever loved.

     Caroline Harrison (Tordon) was born on October 24th 1931 in Preeceville, Saskatchewan. 

     On November 2nd 2020 Caroline left this life to be with her husband Morris.  Before his passing on January 21st 2002, they celebrated 50 years of marriage. 

     Left behind to grieve is their daughter Ardelle, plus many family members and friends.   

      Due to the covid pandemic Caroline's family will celebrate her life privately.
