Carol Linda Christine FLOYD


August 29, 1955 ~ March 4, 2014

With great sadness we announce the sudden

passing of Carol Floyd on March 4, 2014.

Carol will be deeply missed by aunts Mary and Nel

Makortoff , brother Sid Floyd (Linda), and sisters Wendy Mirmotahari (Afshin), Sharon Hunt (Earl), and Kathy Schaefer (Glen). Nieces and nephews, Sarah (Pablo), Nathan and Adrienne Floyd ; Jayme and Casey Chisholm (Jody); and Madeleine and Rachel Schaefer. Carol was also great aunt to Keita, Anne, and Kenai Floyd; and Tessa, Ava, and Cameron Chisholm. Carol’s mother and best friend, Helen Floyd, greeted her in heaven where they are walking along a

sunny beach far above the clouds.

Carol was born in Vancouver and moved to Grand Forks

in 1969. Carol moved back to Vancouver immediately

after graduating high school. There she worked for

Canadian Customs Brokers and then started a long

career with Canada Post. Carol continued to work at

Canada Post when she moved to Kelowna in 1981

and until her retirement in 2012. Carol was genuine,

generous, and kind. She kept life-long friendships,

especially with her high school friends.

Carol was a devoted aunt to each and every one of her

nieces and nephews. Carol loved to cook and sew for

family and friends. She would arrive at all family reunions with an abundance of food and mass quantities of her latest sewing project with plenty for everyone. Carol’s passion

for quilting took up much of her time in her retirement and she was a member of many quilting groups. She used to

say that her quilts were her babies. Her sewing was

impeccable and she had a gift for arranging colors and

patterns. Carol loved shopping for fabrics

– she who has the most fabric wins!

Carol loved to travel. In her early twenties she traveled

to Europe and was abroad for many months. Her mother was her traveling and beach combing partner

and together they traveled to Jamaica, Fiji, Bali, Venezuela, Costa Rica, the Cook Islands, Cuba and Mexico.

We wish to thank Dr. Schulze, the staff

at Kelowna General Hospital, friend Teresa Stadel who

held Carol’s hand in her last hours, as well as Carol’s

friends for their love and support. Carol’s family, friends, and fellow quilters are invited to a gathering at 2PM on

April 12th, Unit 2 – 1950 Burtch Road, Kelowna, BC.
