Carolyn Madeline Maynes (nee Crane)
July 4,1948 - October 3,2023


Carolyn passed away suddenly at Southlake Regional Hospital on Tuesday October 3, 2023.

Sister Elaine Bilton (Barry), brother Ron Crane (Lola) both of Grand Valley, nieces Kayley, Jenna and Natalie and nephews Stacey and Cory. Predeceased by the love of her life Thomas (2014) and her parents Willis and Madeline Crane.

Carolyn was raised in Grand Valley and moved to Toronto after high school where she trained as an R.P.N. and met her husband. Together they had many adventures living in Ontario, the United States, Alberta and finally settling in British Columbia for the last 35 years. Carolyn was kind and caring, always ready to lend a helping hand. She enjoyed people, learning new things and loved to laugh. She had a knack for looking at the bright side of life and hoping for the best. She was happiest when spending time with her grandchildren and tending to her garden.

Carolyn will be greatly missed by her life long friend Margaret, friends in Ontario and friends in British Columbia.

Carolyn cherished the small pleasures of life and her favourite saying was “ I leave it up to the universe “

There will be a Celebration of Life held on Saturday, October 7, 2023, from 2pm-5pm at the home of Ron and Lola Crane (Farm).
