TETRAULT SIRSLY, Carol-Ann
Doctor Carol-Ann Tetrault Sirsly passed away on Friday, January 29, 2016 in Montreal, surrounded by her family. Born in Montreal to Olga Wydet and Edwin Tetrault, she was fiercely loved by her husband of 42 years Antoine (Tony) Sirsly, her two daughters Dominique (Robbie) and Francesca (Stéphane), her sister Darlene Rayment (Peter), her nephews David and Michael, and sister-in-law Christena Keon Sirsly (the late Claude). She earned her CA/CPA, MBA and PhD and led a brilliant career, first in business, then in academia. She most recently taught as an Associate Professor at the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University. In addition to those notable accomplishments, she was an incomparable wife, mother, and friend. Her kind heart, sharp mind, playful wit and boundless love will be so deeply missed. She was a generous and warm hostess who made everyone feel welcome in her home. She loved to gather her friends, was a tireless champion of her loved ones, and an unstoppable force in everything she undertook. At Carol-Ann's request, there will be a short viewing for relatives and friends at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, February 5, 2016 at the
Centre funéraire Côte-des-Neiges
Dignity Memorial
4525 Côte-des-Neiges

followed by a ceremony celebrating her life in the chapel at 12:00 p.m., thence to the Notre-Dame- des-Neiges Cemetery for interment.

Dr.Sirsly remains a great example for me. She channeled her many skills, accomplishments and talents into developing young leaders who would consider environmental sustainability in their industrial business decision making. Academically, getting to learn from her was enlightening; personally, so as was getting to know her.

My deepest condolences to Carol-Ann's family. I had the pleasure of taking a few of Carol-Ann's classes at Sprott. She was a huge support and wonderful professor. An immense help to me when I graduated and needed references in the workforce. I am so saddened by this news and will always remember and be thankful for her positive impact on my life.

This is such a sad loss for the entire Sprott family and everyone that got to know Carol-Ann. She was such a positive, inspirational person and having her as a professor really helped me develop a passion for business. The manner in which she helped improve her students as people, not just academics will always stick with me. I have always appreciated her open-door policy when I needed advice, direction or anything else she could help with. I am so terribly sorry for the family; I will never forget the impact Carol-Ann has had on me. Thank you for everything

As a colleague, Carol-Ann was invariably warm, sharp, and constructive. As a teacher, she received rave reviews - a reflection of her dedication and the impact she made in the lives of so many people. As the many comments in this guest book attest, Carol-Ann was a special person. She'll be deeply missed.

Mes sincères condoléances à la famille. Peut-être parce que nous étions tout deux CA, cela a cliqué immédiatement. Mais c'est probablement en raison de sa personnalité toujours de bonne humeur, de son sourire et de son humour. Nous avions des projets communs avec le SCSE/CSES, dont elle était membre.
Courage pour les prochains mois. Sa mémoire survivra à la Sprott School of Business et dans ma mémoire comme une collègue et une amie.

I was lucky enough to be in Professor Sirsly's class twice in my time at Carleton. She was always kind and had a smile on her face but what I will remember most is her genuine care for her students. She was always willing to help and make thoughtful suggestions to encourage her students to grow.

Carol-Ann was gracious, kind and gentle with every one of her students. I was lucky enough to TA for her and get to know her quite well and I have to say she was one of the most generous people I have ever met. She always had time for us, and usually some chocolate, but most of all she was generous with her knowledge. My deepest condolences to her family.

Je garde de bons souvenirs de Carol-Ann: avec un background similaire, nous avions des points en commun. Carol-Ann a été une personne qui n'a pas hésité à me donner des conseils et encouragements dans ma nouvelle carrière académique.

Je suis très attristée par son décès et je souhaite von courage à sa famille. En espérant que les excellents souvenirs de Carol-Ann vont bientôt remplacer la tristesse.

Cher Tony, chère famille de Carol-Ann,
Elle a été mon étudiante au doctorat et j'en ai gardé le souvenir de l'une des personnes les plus bienveillantes que j'ai connues. Généreuse et amicale, elle était aimé de tous. Je suis sûr qu'elle laisse beaucoup de vide pour vous, mais aussi pour nous tous. je vais faire une petite prière pour Carol-Ann et pour vous tous.
avec mes sincères condoléances,
Taïeb.

Are thoughts and prayers are with you. Linda Duxbury
