Carole Hunt (nee Woloshyn)
August 30, 1958 – September 26, 2014
Our precious Carole passed away at 56 years of age with family by her side. Carole was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, colleague and friend who touched the lives of so many in such a positive way.
Carole is survived by her husband and best friend of 33 years, Cyril, who was the love of her life. Carole and Cyril raised 3 children: Alison (Taylor), Graham, and Nicole. Carole was also the proud grandmother (Mimi) of the apple of her eye, Lily. Carole is also survived by her mother (Carole), father (Peter) and siblings: Kathy (Ron), Peter (Colleen), Terry (Janine) and Jeanette (Doug).
Carole always wanted to help make the world a better place and was an active volunteer over her lifetime having served on multiple community and charitable boards, and as well for the U of A.
Carole was a special woman who accomplished so much in her life. While raising three young children she obtained an MBA and law degree. She quickly gained the trust of her colleagues and corporate clients, building a successful practice as a partner with Bennett Jones and obtaining her QC designation. Carole then went on to build and lead the legal team at Alberta Investment Management Corporation as Chief Legal Officer.
While all of her career milestones are impressive in themselves Carole was most proud of her relationships with family, especially Cyril, her children, Lily and her close friends. Carole spent the last three years nurturing these relationships and enjoying every second of every day. She loved spending time at her second home in Palm Springs with Cyril and guests. Carole also became an accomplished oil and watercolor painter, and many of us proudly have her work displayed in our homes. We will all miss her dearly, Carole enriched our lives profoundly.
A celebration of Carole’s life will be held at the Clymont Hall (www.clymont.com for directions, casual dress) on Monday October 6 from 2pm – 5pm, preceded by a private interment.
