Carol Ellen Ruth Nelson (nee Morey)

July 22, 2023

July 16, 1941 - July 22, 2023
In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend.
Carol was born in Brockington, Saskatchewan, on July 16, 1941, to Laura and Charlie Morey. The family moved to the Pend d'Oreille where the neighbor delighted in feeding her strawberries. Shortly thereafter they moved to Renata. She met Murray Nelson in 1957 and they married in 1958. They remained in Renata until 1965. When everyone moved out of Renata, they moved to Vallican and remained there until her passing.
Left to mourn her passing are her husband of 65 years, Murray.
Her four children and their spouses: Julie (Kent), Stan, Linda, and Faye (Roy).
Her 11 grandchildren and their spouses, and 12 great-grandchildren.
Her youngest sister Anna.
Her sisters-in-law Pearl Morey and Sheila Griffiths.
And many, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Mom enjoyed strawberries, knitting socks, babies, listening to Jim Reeves and Charlie Pride, and playing cards with the seniors, but most of all, she loved riding behind Dad on their classic Honda Goldwing motorcycle.
Carol is predeceased by her parents Laura and Charlie Morey, her brothers Fred, Jim, Henry, and Charlie Jr., her sisters May and Florence, and two nephews, Greg and Peter.
Such a beautiful woman, gone too soon, though never to be forgotten.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation Canada. The memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 12th, 2023, at the Passmore Community Hall at 11 a.m.
