Carol Margaret (Grieef) Broderick graduated from life on earth Jan. 6, 2019, at the age of 68 years, to embark on a new journey in Heaven. She left suddenly from an unknown illness.
Carol lived in Kamloops for many years. She was born on Dec. 5, 1950, to Sylvia and David Grieef and raised in Prince Albert, Sask. She graduated from Prince Albert Collegiate Institute at the age of 17 years and went immediately to work in the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, first in Prince Albert then in Kamloops, retiring after 38 years.
For many seasons, she and Brian harvested the many apple trees in her yard and sold them to appreciative neighbours and friends. She was a talented crocheter and produced awesome afghans for her family. She had several domesticated Mallard ducks that decided to make her back yard their home. Carol was out every day filling up the paddling pool providing her ducks with a place to swim and making sure they had enough to eat!
Carol had several pets during her lifetime, both dogs and cats, and she loved them all dearly. Cleo (her cat) would snuggle up with her and together they would watch the various birds and other animals that frequented her yard. Cleo’s antics around the house were a source of great entertainment.
Carol is survived by her sister Valerie Audette (Bob) and family Deborah, Quinn, Kyle, Clint and Kim and their families; her sister Meriel Bodie and family Debra, Derek, Diane and Dean and their families; her close friend Joan and care giver Stephina.
She was predeceased by parents Sylvia and David Grieef, brother-in-law Steve, partner Brian Zeck, uncles, aunts, grandparents and her close friend Nancy. Rest in peace, dear Carol, we will miss you.
Friends are invited to join the family for a reception tea in the First Memorial Chapel, #8 - 177 Tranquille Road from 1 to 3 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 21, 2019. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Kamloops SPCA in memory of Carol would be appreciated.
