December 10, 1946 – September 6, 2015
It is with gratitude for her life and sorrow at her passing, that the family of Carol Ann Cuzzocrea, announce her passing away peacefully on Sept 6th, 2015 with family and friends by her side.
Carol was born in Kelowna, BC on Dec 10th, 1946, the second of five children to Dave and Lil Hewer and it is from her parents that she learned that love and kindness are all that matters. Her childhood was spent between Kelowna and Prince Rupert, where she had many fond memories of picnics, holiday celebrations, and Sunday dinners. After university Carol married Charlie Cuzzocrea and moved to Campbell River in 1969 where they raised their two children.
26 years ago Carol became a realtor and formed a business partnership with her dear friend Toni Smith. The duo became well known for their professional and considerate approach to their clients and peers, including many who have become friends. Over the years and countless achievements together, Carol and Toni’s friendship remained a reflection of their loyalty and class.
Carol was an amazing mother, nanny, and friend to many. An avid bridge player, she will be missed for her thoughtfulness, keen wit, sense of style, and strength of character. She spent more time thinking of others than herself, and if you were invited to her home you were sure of something delicious to eat, her undivided attention, and lots of laughs.
With her passing, the secret of who really burned down the family garage will forever remain a mystery.
Carol was predeceased by her parents Dave and Lillian Hewer. She is survived by her son Craig (Jenn) and daughter Stacy (Greg), grandchildren Seth and Rocco, brothers Gary (Sue), David (Janet), Joe (Karla), sister Meldy (Ken) and numerous nieces and nephews. 4 no trump.
A Celebration of Life was on Saturday, September 19th, 2015 at 1pm in the Campbell River Baptist Church.
