Born in Toronto to the late Warren Birch and Charlotte Birch (Nee Edney) and now joyfully reunited with her loving soulmate Keith Hoggard and her daughter Susan Wood. Also predeceased by her son-in-law, Kevin Vliek. Carol was a light in all of her communities. Her impact will be forever remembered as one of great joy. To know Carol was to know her bright smile, her contagious laugh and warm hugs. She shared a Christ-like love for people that held no judgement and knew no limitations. Carol cherished time spent with her daughters and their families, lovingly tended to her stunning garden, and spent hours crafting with her young grandchildren, helping inspire many creative masterpieces. Carol served her church family as a mentor and volunteer, while continuously expanding and deepening her circle of friendships Carol will be greatly missed by her sister, Shirley and brother in-law Dave Deaville.
