Carrie graduated from the School of Nursing at St. Claire’s Mercy Hospital in 1948. She started her nursing career at the old company hospital located on West Street, then moved to the Christopher Fisher Hospital and on to the current Western Memorial Regional Hospital before ending her career at the O’Connell Centre. Mom was very proud to be a nurse and her love of nursing came second only to the love that she had for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The family would like to thank the staffs at both the Protective Community Residences located on Wheeler’s Road and the Corner Brook Long Term Care Centre on University Drive. The service, care, compassion and love extended to mom was exceptional. The family is also very grateful for all the wonderful medical care, provided to her over the years by Dr. O’Connor. Finally, a thank you is extended to the Catholic Women’s League and Carrie’s great neighbors on Dorchester Avenue. A visitation for family and friends will take place at Country Haven Funeral Home, 167 Country Road on Friday, April 5, 2019 from the hours of 2-4 and 7-9 pm.
