HARRON, Carole (née Beebe)
May 2, 1947 – Montréal, Québec, Canada
April 24, 2017 – Cochrane, Alberta, Canada
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Carole
Harron (née Beebe) on April 24, 2017 at home in Cochrane,
Alberta after a lengthy, courageous battle with ocular
melanoma cancer. She was born in Montréal, Québec,
Canada, to Laurence P. Beebe and Madeleine Dufour,
both of whom have pre-deceased her. She is survived
by her loving husband of 47 years Terrence (Terry)
Harron ; children Eric Harron and Robert (Piper) Harron;
grandchildren Alexandre Harron and Julien Harron; brothers
Joel (Valerie) Beebe; Lawrence (Sakina) Beebe and Marc (Irma)
Beebe; nieces Carolyn Beebe, Genevieve Beebe and Chloé
Beebe; and, nephews Laurence Beebe and Marc (Carolyn) Beebe.
Carole was a worldly, forthright, spirited and feisty woman, full of
« joie de vivre », with a passion for life in general and cooking, baking, painting
and interior design in particular. She revelled in preparing gourmet meals for
friends, neighbours and relatives. She was magnanimous and giving, and the
ultimate hostess to all who crossed her doorstep.
Carole was an accomplished artist with almost 300 paintings to her credit, and
4 published collections of her works ("Les Oeuvres de Carole Harron"). It was
only during her first stay in Paris, at the age of 44, that she started to paint. Her
natural talents for style and colour were enhanced during the periods that she
lived in Paris and Frankfurt. Carole mastered several media (watercolour, oil and
acrylic) and her paintings incorporate several subjects, such as, still life, people,
landscapes and abstracts. Her landscapes have been greatly influenced by her
recent proximity to the magnificent Canadian Rockies.
Carole graduated from the Grey Nun's (Soeurs Grises) Secretarial School (referred
to as the "Motherhouse") in Montréal in 1966, and worked as a bilingual legal
secretary at the prestigious Montréal law firm Ogilvy, Renault (now Norton Rose)
for 13 years.
It was Carole's wish that there be no viewing or ceremony. Anyone
wishing to donate in her memory should consider the Tom Baker
Cancer Centre in Calgary, or the Ocular Melanoma Foundation.
