It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Carolyn Anne Hobson (nee: Davis) of Blairmore, Alberta. Carol was called to be with the Lord on February 8, 2018 while receiving tender care at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre. She lived 77 years of a full and cherished life.
Carol was born on June 10, 1940 in Halifax, Nova Scotia to parents, John and Grace Davis. Throughout her lifetime, she accomplished much as well as suffered challenges and heartache. Her positive attitude was conditioned by her desire to persevere and help others. Her volunteer work was a testament to her generous and compassionate nature. Carol donated her time and energy to Meals On Wheels for local seniors and the disabled, to local clubs and tournaments such as the Summer and Winter Olympics, various fund-raisers, Charter President of the CNP Lioness’ Club and later the Cowley Lions’ Club, and was a founding Board of Director for the Alberta Eye Bank organ donor association receiving many prestigious awards and commendations. She was also an avid golf enthusiast who enjoyed every aspect of the game. Carol had many passions and interests in her life but her heart always belonged to her beloved husband, Jim - they were soul mates and friends.
She will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by her family: husband, James Hobson of Blairmore, AB; children, Linda Scott of Pincher Creek, AB, Nancy Rudback of Halifax, NS and Robert (Stella) Rudback of Lower Sackville, NS; grandchildren, David (Dawn) Scott of Eastern Passage, NS, Chysom (Carolyn) Scott of Portage La Prairie, MB, Cheyenne Scott of Pincher Creek, AB and Cassandra Banks of Pincher Creek, AB; great grandchildren, Dima Scott, Luca Scott and Lacey Scott; siblings, Bunny Tanner of Halifax, NS and Jack Davis of St. Margaret’s Bay, NS; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family; as well as the many friends she made throughout her lifetime.
