Harris, Carol Anne – Passed away peacefully on Monday May 4th, 2020 at Wynfield Long Term Care Facility.
Carol was in her 70th year.

Beloved wife of Brian Harris for 47 years.

Beloved mother of Jeff, Michael(Amber), Andrea(Will) and Sherri(Chris).

Beloved grandmother Jackson, Cieran, Declan, Hunter, Lucas, Anika, Kaylee and Oliver

Dear sister of John Cross and stepsister of Beth, Bruce(Lee) and Bill(Lisa).

Dear sister in law of Heather (the late Larry), Karen(Frank), Cheryl, Vaughan(Karen), Janice(Michael), Charlene(Luis), And Terry(Maria).

Dear niece of Grant and Donna Simmons and proud aunt of Bruce (Joanne) and Brian (Tammy).

Carol will be lovingly remembered by all of her family and friends.

Carol was a proud teacher for 35 years and finished her career at Newcastle Public School teaching her favourite grade, kindergarten.
Carol loved to travel! She cherished family trips to various locations around the world. After retirement, Carol and Brian quite enjoyed cruises and staying at Sandals resorts.
Her hobbies included singing, gardening, sewing, painting and decorating, reading and spending time with her children and later, her grandchildren.

After being diagnosed with Alzheimer's, Carol was fortunate to get connected with Alzheimer’s Society Durham Region and their support programs and staff. During our first support group, Carol proclaimed that, “I would do as much as I could for as long as I could.” She was determined, resilient and inspired many during her fight.

The family would like to thank the staff of Alzheimer’s Society Durham Region and the staff of Oshawa Senior Citizen Centres for their support. A heartfelt thanks and gratitude is extended to Wynfield LTC staff and in particular all staff that worked in the Purple Woods Unit.

A private family service will be held at Armstrong Funeral Home on Friday May 8th, followed by interment at Union Cemetery, Oshawa.

For information on paying your respects to the family please call 905-433-4711.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the future when all those who knew and loved Carol can be gathered together in person.

At the request of the family, No flowers please, memorial donations in memory of Carol to the Alzheimer’s Society Durham Region

or Autism Society Ontario

would be appreciated by the family.

Brian and family, I am so sorry to hear of Carol's passing. I have many fond memories of her running the library at Newcastle Public school and the fundraisers she orchestrated to ensure more books were available to the students. Both of you were a power house team for the school and our community. Julaine , Jeffrey and Josh will be sorry to hear of her passing. Jeff loved to go to the Library and help her shelve the books. May God Bless you and your family,
Joanna Bowman

Dear Brian and Family,
I am sorry to read about Carol's passing, and truly hope she now rests in peace. Through our years working together on various school board and federation activities, and our many library book-buying expeditions by bus, Carol was always ready with a warm smile and helpful ideas. With sincere sympathy,
Carolyn Wilson
