Mary Carolyn Cook

January 12, 2023

Passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 12, 2023 at University Hospital in London, Ontario. Born on June 4, 1956 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Carolyn spent much of her life in London, Ontario. Her love of figure skating expanded her horizons by taking her to the United States of America, Mexico, and Japan.  She returned to Ontario and graduated from the University of Guelph, followed by a career at University Hospital.

Carolyn is predeceased by her parents George Earl Cook of Kyle, SK and Hilda May Lank of Cornwall, PEI.  Cherished sister to Diane (Michael Dymarski) of Norwich, ON; Barbara Cook (Robert Parsons) of Brant County, ON; Allan Cook of London, ON; and Catharine (Lloyd Monteith) of Granton, ON.  Beloved Aunt to her many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Cremation has taken place.  A private family memorial and interment will be held at Limehouse Cemetery in June.

The family would like to thank the staff and residents at Kensington Retirement Village for their care and assistance in Carolyn’s last months.

In her memory, memorial donations may be made to the Dale E. Creighton Brain & BioBank via the London Health Sciences Foundation or to a charity of your choice.

Carolyn had a love of life. I was grateful to have been a part of her life.

~ Lorraine Elliott

I was a lucky little duck to have you show me the way in my formative years. In so many instances you unwittingly guided my moral compass. The memories are vast and everlasting and will live on with us forever. The lessons learned lasted right to the end when you showed us all how to roll with cards we are dealt. May your generosity advance science and may you Rest In Peace.

~ Catharine Monteith

My deepest sympathies to all of you in Carolyn's family. She often shared her joy in loving you when she spoke with me. I'm most grateful for the times we spent enjoying nature together, and the bliss on her face while she watched the creek and the birds. She was a beautiful person. I miss her quiet serenity.
