Carol Downer with friends Rose, Jenny and Doris - indoor gardeningIn Loving Memory of Carol Downer

5th February 1944 to 5th January 2011

Carol was a very keen member of ACE. She enjoyed meeting her many friends at the Thursday Group, with a chat over a cup of tea or coffee before listening and joining in with the visiting speaker.

After lunch she took part in the ‘The Write Way’ Creative Writing class. Sam, the tutor, said of Carol when writing to her family,” I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am to hear the news about Carol - I remember her very well from when she was part of our group. She was a lively character and always had something to say! She and I always had a giggle together about various things.

I found her to be a very well-read and knowledgeable member of the group and was very sorry when she no longer came to class.

My dad died very suddenly several years ago, when I was three months pregnant. Carol was very warm-hearted and sincere in her condolences, which I will never forget. She also talked very warmly about my baby (as then unborn). Ned was born in April and unfortunately, when I returned from maternity leave Carol had left the group so I was unable to bombard her with the obligatory photos!

She excelled in the gardening class with her enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of all aspects.

Carol will be missed.
