On Tuesday, March 30, 2021 Carol Anne Witte passed away suddenly at the age of 59.
Carol was born on March 4, 1962 in Mahopac, New York, USA. She attended Lewis S Beattie High School where she studied hair dressing and cooking classes.
Carol was a member of the Participation House community for several years where she also enjoyed doing volunteer work with other members. Carol was also a member of The Centre for Dreams where she quickly formed many great friendships.
Carol’s ability to find joy in the simplest pleasures in life will be greatly missed. She had a passion for anything family-oriented and/or fun. She loved cooking, music and dancing. Her capacity for empathy will continue to be a great lesson for all who knew her.
Carol is predeceased by her mother, Kathryn. She is survived by her sisters, Jody, Kathy, Lorry and brother, Mark, and two cousins. She will be missed by many nieces and nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews, and her long-time companion Chris Collingham.
