Margaret Caron Townsend
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear Mother, Sister, Friend M. Caron Townsend (nee Johnson) of Coleman, Alberta on November 21st, 2011.
Caron was born in Blairmore, Alberta on January 7th, 1941 the daughter of Margaret (nee Stewart) and Reuben Johnson.
Caron enjoyed growing up in the Crowsnest Pass area participating in many of her favorite sports: curling, hockey, swimming and later years of skiing, hiking and snow shoeing and daily walks and talks with close friends.
After completing highschool she went on to obtain her Nursing certificate from the Calgary General Hospital where she graduated in 1962. Her career took her to places in Alberta and British Columbia, returning to her home town area to continue in her field for a total of 44 years. She was a proud member of the AARN. She was an active member of the Alberta Beta Tau Sorority.
Caron enjoyed participating and giving back in her own way to the community. She sat on boards such as the Crowsnest Pass School Board, York Creek Lodge, and Museum. She enjoyed volunteering for community events: Winter Games Home Coming, the Sinister 7 to name a few.
Caron's love of travel and adventure took her to many far off corners of the world where she enjoyed the people, culture and traditions of the area. Some of her lucky family and friends shared in her adventures to places such as Europe, Egypt, Belize, South America, Australia, China, Antarctic to name but a few.
She is survived by her children Mark (Heather) of Crowsnest Pass & California. Doyle (Andrea) of Calgary, her brother Brian (Myra) and nephews Andrew and Alex of the UK, her Uncle Gordon Dunford of the Crowsnest Pass and many cousins and her many, many longtime friends.
As per Caron's wishes no ceremony is to be held. Family and friends will be conducting a Celebration of Life for Caron in the spring of 2012.
Caron's love of animals was great. In lieu of flowers, donations in Caron's Memory can be made to The Crowsnest Pass SPCA, Box 725, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0
