Flora CARTER

CARTER, Flora

The family of Flora Carter is sad to announce her passing on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. Flora was born on December 4, 1920 on her parent’s farm at Delburne. In 1940 she married Dell Carter and after Dell returned from the war, raised two daughters Colleen Butler and Marlene Bysterveld. Flora remained in her own home on the farm until March of this year where she enjoyed gardening, baking bread and gathering her family around her. She was very proud of her family and her home and was very active in her community. She was predeceased by her husband Dell (1989); her parents Sam and Jessie MacDonald; her brothers Dave, Ike, and John, and her sister May Auvigne; and son-in-law Rod Butler. She is survived by her daughters Colleen Butler and Marlene (Keith) Bysterveld and their families Stephen (Charity) Butler and children Kennedy and Kassidy; Kathy (Kevin) Guard and their children Kaden and Katana; Jennifer (Sonja) Bysterveld; Jessica (Shane) Powers and their children Jorja and Josie; and Jocelyn (Bryce) Pennock and their children Carter, Clancy, and Porter. She has been a role model to all of us with her quiet strength and her zest for life. She lived every moment to the fullest even water sliding and tobogganing at age 93, and zip-lining just 3 short months ago. We “count our blessings” that we had her in our lives for so many years. A celebration of life will be held on Friday, November 4 at 11am at the Delburne Community Hall. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to St. Mary’s Health Care Centre (Trochu) in Flora’s name.
