Dear Audrey, Marc and Lorraine, I was so sad to hear about your mother. I too have so many fond memories of her, and your dad, enlivening Vermont evenings as part of my parents' circle of friends. You always knew that with Carol you'd get frank conversation, always an interesting take on life, the great cakes everyone has mentioned, the generosity and the wonderful pottery, sometimes a sneaky cigarette together outside in the bracing cold. But always, unfailingly, you'd find someone who would take an interest in what you were doing. Your mother was a woman of strength and that always struck me since I was a child. My thoughts are with you all.

J.J. and Barbara extend our deepest condolences to all of Carol's family. The time spent with Carol left an indelible memory of her animated and inquisitive participation in the Study Group Chen, her keen interest in bridge, not to mention her flair for baking and gardening and above all her genuine sincere and candid nature. She will be missed.

Dear Audrey, Marc and Lorraine, Deepest condolences to you and the family on the passing of your mother. I do have fond memories of our families sharing fun and celebrations in Montreal, particularly at parties and holidays at the Shaar Hashomayim. Your mother Carol was one of my mother Barbara's closest friends. Your mother had a good sense of humour and was warm hearted. I have good memories of coming to your house for family dinner in Montreal in 1982 while my family was in Israel. Be well. Sympathies from me and Terry.

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Carol. When I first got married and moved to Montreal. Carol was Jeremy's supervisor for his SW placement. She became more than a supervisor, a mentor for us both. My first time on skis was when she invited us to their country house in Vermont. The differences in our ages didn't matter. She and Herman were gracious hosts and we had a great time. Her memory will be a blessing to all who knew her. May the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Chen Study group - 24 days ago
Dear Family of Carol. We wanted to share with you that Carol was a beloved member of study group CHEN at the Shaar Hashomayim for over 50 years. Carol and Herman were original members and as such formed an Integral part of the leadership and well-being of the group. Their contribution can be measured by the fact that 50 years later our group is still functioning although We shall greatly miss Carol at future meetings. Carol loved the study group and the study group loved Carol. You might say it was a perfect match. When a group meets for over 50 years, every second week, and Social relationships evolve into very close bonds. Over the years we have lost eight men in our Group but Carol is the first female. The eight men that we lost remain very close to our hearts and Carol as the first female will never be forgotten. May Audrey, Marc and Michael be blessed among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. May the extended family and friends be comforted by a life well lived. Irene and Stephen for Study Group Chen.

Dear Mark, Audrey, Lorraine and family, we were so sad to hear of Carol's passing. Her presence in Vermont always made our visits that much more enjoyable! Whether it was to visit her dog, sample her delicious baked goods or take a tour of her studio and see her lastest pottery. I remember many chats about social work and psychology early in my profession, but it was our discussions about personal relationships that showed me what a good and kind person Carol was. I will miss her direct humour, forthright attitude, and her genuine warmth for others. I am so sorry for your loss, made especially more pronounced under the current circumstances.

Heartfelt sympathies, Audrey, Marc and Lorraine, Michael and Marion, and Family. Carol was a Dear, Lively and Loyal Friend. So glad she was able to pursue her dreams in Vermont. Love, Helen
Greg Lipper - 24 days ago
Dear Marc, Audrey, Michael, Marion, and all the extended family: My deepest sympathies on the passing away of Carol. She and Herman were close friends of my parents for all my life. In fact, one of my earliest memories is of the 4 of them playing bridge in our living room. Audrey babysat for us on occasion, and I grew friendly with Marc, and have him to thank for introducing me to the Kinks, still one of my favorite bands. Carol was always fun to be around because she spoke her mind and had an edgy sense of humor. I am sorry for your loss, and sorry that we cannot be with you for shiva at this surreal time we are living in.
Bill and Eliane Gerstein - 24 days ago
Dear Audrey and Marc, it was a great shock to learn about your mother's defeat in this horrible virus battle. She overcame so many obstacles and always with good humour and choice words and I was hoping we could some day in the future celebrate our joint 85th birthday as we did so many times in the past. Such an intelligent, warmhearted and proud wife, mother and grandmother has preceded us in our slow march to the inevitable but we will cherish our memories of dinners, parties, games and good conversations over the many years of friendship. We are very sorry for you and Michael and Marnie so far away but you will be in our thoughts until we can properly celebrate her life with you. She was a great woman and a fun friend, may she rest in peace.

Rob Morin & Paula Habib - 24 days ago
Hey Marc and Lorraine, we are so sorry to hear about Carol, she was the last of a great legacy, her along with Herman were a fantastic couple! Herman was like a dad to me, and Carol was always there to support and straighten out Herman when needed. I wish you all my sympathies and regret not being able to give you these sympathies personally in this time of the Covid. May God bless you all! Take Care. Rob & Paula
Bluma and Mark Rosenstein - 24 days ago
To Carol's loved ones, we were so saddened by Carol's passing. We lost a dear friend and stalwart of our Shaar Chen study group for almost 50 years. What a character! Feisty, outspoken, independent--she said what she thought and meant what she said. Immensely entertaining. Made great rhubarb cake. We'll miss her. Bluma and Mark
Randa Wexler - 24 days ago
Dear Marc and Lorraine, Audrey, Michael and Marion We saw Carol infrequently in her last few years but we have wonderful memories of our 40 plus years in Vermont. We were a small Montreal group who spent every weekend as well as holidays together. We remember fondly the wonderful parties that Carol and Herman hosted in their home. She fed us beautifully and then we all sat around telling jokes and border stories. Her death at this most surreal time must be inexplicably difficult for you and we send you deepest condolences. Randi and Marvin
