CAROL LAWSON (nee HOUSTON) Peacefully after a brave seven year battle against cancer on November 30, 2012 in her 62nd year. Predeceased by her parents Edward Merrill and Reta Houston. Carol was a loving wife, sister, mother and Nana with incredible strength and a generous spirit that touched all who met her. Carol was a proud civil servant who spent her final working years in the Learning Ministries where she believed she could make a difference. Special thanks to all the wonderful staff at St. Michael's Hospital particularly on 2 Queen and in the palliative care unit. Carol is survived by her husband Don, children Melanie (James) and Shawn, grandsons Zachary and Jakob and her sisters Janet and Sandy. She will be greatly missed. A simple service with no visitation will be held at the Mount Pleasant Visitation Centre, 375 Mount Pleasant Road (east gate entrance) on Tuesday, December 4th at 2 p.m. A celebration of Carol's life will be held at a later date. If you wish, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Oncology Medical Daycare at St. Michael's Hospital would be greatly appreciated.
