On the evening of Friday, October 9, 2015, Carol Kokas, long-time resident of Drayton Valley, passed away at Drayton Valley Hospital and Care Centre, six days short of her 85th Birthday. Carol’s unconditional love and companionship will be missed by her husband of almost 64 years, Joseph; son, Wayne (Roxanne); grandchildren, Blane (Angela), Aaron (Shawn) and Shane (Matt) and great-granddaughter, Tillanea. Carol will also be greatly missed by her siblings, several nieces and nephews, numerous extended family that span across Canada and to the many friends acquired throughout the years. Carol is predeceased by her son, Larry and parents, Leonard and Margaret Fish. As Carol wished, a private family gathering will take place at a later date. The Kokas family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude and deep appreciation to the staff and residents at Sunrise Village and Drayton Valley Hospital for their professionalism, wonderful care and warm friendships shown. In honour of Carol, memorial contributions may be directed to Drayton Valley Health Services Foundation, CT4DV, 4550 Madsen Avenue, Drayton Valley, Alberta T7A 1N8 or to the charity of one’s choice.
