LEWIS, Carolyn Isabella (nee Oliver) Passed away peacefully on Thursday May 24, 2012, in hospital in Saanich BC, following a battle with cancer. Carolyn was in her 67th year and remained positive right up to her passing, even as Plan A turned to Plan B then Plan C. She will be deeply missed by her husband Alan, sons Keith (Monique) and Jeffrey (Jaime), and her joy, grandson Graeme. Beloved sister of Iain (Barbara), Brian (Stephanie) and Sandy (late Ken). Predeceased by her father Lawrence, mother Muriel Donkin (late Walt), & brother Gary (Linda). Greatly missed by the many members of her extended family in Canada and the UK, including Aunt Betty Hodgkins. After a first career raising two sons, Carolyn turned her hand to small business. Most recently, she crossed the country and spent the last 14 years building and maintaining a community cinema with her sister Sandy in Sidney BC, from which she derived immense personal satisfaction. Warm, compassionate and caring, she will be fondly remembered by the many relatives and friends in Ontario and the UK, as well as friends, staff, Flukes, and cinephiles from BC. A celebration of life will be held Friday June 1, 2012 at 2:00 St Elizabeth's Church, 10030 3rd Street, Sidney BC. A further service will be held in Ontario, and she will be interred in Bobcaygeon. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honour to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Save Star Cinema community campaign ( www.starcinema.ca ).
