Gooch, Carole
Peacefully, with her family by her side, on Thursday May 12, 2016 at the Princess Margaret Hospital, at the age of 71. Beloved wife of Phillip for 50 years. Cherished mother of Kate and Angus. Loving sister of Marlene Woods (David), David Mill (Elizabeth) and Cathy Mill. Carole was born and raised in the Town of Mount Royal, Montreal. She graduated from the Sacred Heart Convent and then Marianopolis College with a BA in English Literature. After graduation she taught English literature in Montreal, but upon moving to London, ON changed direction. Carole took computer programming at Herzing College. That course translated into teaching computer programming; working for the Federal Department of Supply and Service, in Ottawa; then System House, as a systems consultant, in Ottawa and Montreal; moving on to Morgan Trust in Montreal and Toronto. From there Carole moved to Hume Funds which was acquired by Altamira Investment Services. As Vice President of Operations, and with a core group of owner-managers, Carole went on to make Altamira one of the most successful mutual fund companies in Canada. Carole ended her working career at Altamira in 2003. After retirement Carole became an avid golfer, traveled with friends and family, enjoying a full life. In the last ten years she and Phillip spent much of each year in Arizona enjoying the sun, the desert, the golf, and making new friends along the way. Friends may call at Turner & Porter, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane subway, on Thursday May 19 for visitation from 4-7pm.
