Much loved mom of Chris & Ann Rundle, Carolyn raised her family with her parents in Arkona. Carrie's family grew with the addition of her grandchildren, Lainh & Katie, Melissa & Gentry, Graham & Julia, Anastasia, great-grandchildren, William, Anakin, and one great expectation, Duncan.

Carrie is predeceased by her parents Charlie and Elma Johnson, both predeceased in 1983 and will be missed by her many extended family and friends from the Country Manor.

Carrie spent many years working in retail at Simpson Sears, and the Eaton's Department Store before joining Bell Canada where she worked days while attending night school and earning her Bachelor of Arts Degree, prior to becoming an English as a Second Language Teacher. A woman who loved to travel, Carrie loved music, ranging from opera to classical, and possessed a musical talent that offered her the opportunity to travel and sing in a Welsh choir.
