On Tuesday March 31st, 2020 Carol Adele Bolton, loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister passed away just days after her 93rd birthday.
Carol was born on March 26th, 1927 in Kitchener Ontario to St Clair and Ruby (Weigand) Good. Carol received her Teacher’s Certificate from The Stratford Teacher’s College and armed with the independent sprit that stayed with her all her life, she left home at 19 years old to pursue a career in Toronto teaching Grade One. In the big city she met, then married the love of her life, quiet, slightly shy, burly and handsome Hugh (Hughie) Bolton, former defenseman for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Together they raised two sons, Mark and Tim and were married for 47 years before Hughie’s passing in 1999.
The things Carol loved most in life were her family, her church, bridge, books, crossword puzzles and fashion. It’s actually possible that perhaps bridge should be at the top of that list! She was a fabulous card player, smart and sharp and everyone wanted her as their partner! She will be remembered for her quick wit, skill with numbers, kindness and high heels.
Carol is survived by sons Tim (wife Kellie) and Mark (wife Jane), grandchildren Kristen, Scott, Ryley, Jesse and brother Keith Good (wife Jene).
A memorial service and celebration of her life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Royal York United Church, 851 Royal York Rd. Etobicoke, Ontario M8Y 2V3
