Obituary of Carole Williamson
December 7, 1942 – Edmonton, Alberta
May 29, 2022 – Black Diamond, Alberta
Carole Williamson, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 29, 2022, at Rising Sun Care in Black Diamond, AB, at the age of 79 years. She required support from the medical community near the end, but she left on her terms. The family thanks the many health care workers who supported this journey, we are lucky to have you in our community.
Carole was born in Edmonton, AB, on December 7, 1942, to Gladys and Harold Williamson. She graduated from nursing school but travelled south to work in corporate Calgary. She then moved to Kamloops with Jack Davidson, was an executive assistant for the school board, a sign language interpreter, and she complained often that it was just “too hot”. Fortunately, they had a nice home and a boat on the river, she learned to water ski and scuba dive to help cool things down. Carole semi-retired and came back to Alberta to be closer to her family. She was a member of the Bragg Creek Seniors, Ladies Auxiliary, worked part-time at the ATB branch and with the family at Elkana Ranch. The flood of 2013 was the impetus for the Black Diamond move, where she found a rich network of friends whom she loved.
Carole lives on in the memories of her nieces and nephews, Rick (Lori) Atkinson, Kim Atkinson, Joyce Atkinson, Roxanne (Paul) Tabler, Michele McDonald, Kent (Luree) Williamson and their families. She was predeceased by her brother Hector, sister Doreen and nephew Fane.
