Carolyn Doris Auld, a native of Victoria, died Wednesday June 9, 2021 at Saanich Peninsula Hospital. Wife of J. Auld for 55 years, she was predeceased by her parents Dorothy and Stan Cornish and a brother-in-law R.G Auld. She is survived by her husband John, three cousins, Gary, Brian and Glen McDonald and their families, sister-in-law, Diane Auld in Calgary and her four children and their families.

While in Vancouver following John’s transfer from Victoria, Carolyn was active in flower arranging groups and teaching floral arts in addition to office work at Eatons. Upon returning to Vancouver Island, she became involved with the auxiliary at the Saan. Pen. Hospital (Crafty Crew – 20-year pin) and knitting and sewing groups.

In spite of Carolyn’s love of floral arrangements, flowers are gratefully declined. If anyone wishes to make a donation in her Memory, please consider groups assisting with Parkinson’s or Cancer projects.

During her struggles with cancer, excellent kind and attentive assistance was provided by the staff at the Saan. Pen. Hospital, this was greatly appreciated, many thanks.

    John, both Ernie and I were very sorry to hear of Carolyn’s passing. We are so glad to have met you & Carolyn in the Parkinson’s exercise classes in Greenglade. We will always remember both of you taking these 2 Albertans to spend the afternoon with you. We are now almost moved into our condo in Sidney.

    I was very sorry to read of Carolyn’s passing. Although Carolyn and I may have met once, I still cherish the beautiful miniature rose Christmas ornaments you gifted me when I worked with you at FBDB (as it was then known) in Vancouver. I think of you both when I bring them out.

    With sympathy,
    Elizabeth (MacGregor) & Rob Powers

    John. I am so sorry for your loss. I first met Carolyn when I was 12 years old and I joined Job’s Daughters. In later years we met again because of our love of sewing and until the pandemic arrived stayed in touch. Rest in Peace, Carolyn.

    Dear John,

    We are so sorry to hear about Carolyn’s passing. We both enjoyed doing our Greenglade’s exercise class with you both. Carolyn always had such a warm smile and a soft heart. Carolyn will certainly be missed when we get back to Greenglade’s. Our thoughts are with you John…

    I was very sorry to read of Carolyn’s death in the newspaper this morning. She was a very quiet spoken person and did beautiful work for the Hospital Auxiliary at Saanich Peninsula Hospital. She will be missed. Condolences to John and family.

    I am saddened at Carolyn’s passing. I worked in Crafty Crew with her. She was always so patient and taught me a lot. I enjoyed working with her at our Christmas bazaar and will surely miss her when we get back to regular meetings.

    John, it is with sadness that we hear of the passing of Carolyn. Many days of exercising for Parkinson’s brings a smile to my face. Carolyn always tried so hard to do all exercises never missed one. Luckily we laughed at some of the exercises and just moved to the next. The most thing we will always remember is the twinkle in her eyes and the warm smile.
    John if you ever need a friend all you have to do is call.
