Obituary of Carole Stephenson
Peacefully at Scarborough General Hospital on November 18, her 78th birthday. Loving wife of Ronald Frederick Stephenson. Beloved mother of Lisa Laurene Stephenson and Kirsti Lillian Stephenson. Proud sister of Rodney Ellison and Philip Ellison. Proud aunt of Stephanie, Rory and Ginger.
Carole was born and raised in Beeton, Ontario, but moved to Toronto in her early 20’s. She was an Office Manager for lawyers, dentists and doctors over the course of many years. She was a political and community activist and a lover of the wilderness and all living things. But she derived her greatest joy by being the glue that held her family together. Carole was known for her kindness, calm nature and great love of family and friends. She will be greatly missed by many.
