April 24 1945 – April 12 2015
Carolyn passed away in Nelson on April 12 2015 after struggling with cancer for more than 2 years. Carolyn was born in Calgary, AB April 24 1945 to Bob and Marjory McElroy. During her elementary school years the family settles in Nelson where she completed the majority of her early education. Later the family moved to Calgary where she trained as a Floral Designer. In 1963 she married Terrence E. Baugh in Calgary where they started their family. A few years later they were transferred to Edmonton & in 1971 relocated to Nelson. Carolyn was a kind & generous Mother first, but also enjoyed meeting interesting people & entertaining. She was an excellent hostess & partner with her husband. Carolyn had a love of beautiful things & enjoyed the time spent working with flowers, in her garden & on her home. She was an attractive woman who always liked to look her best. It is impossible to capture in words all that she has brought to life and to those she touched.
She is survived by her husband Terry, her daughter Shannon Stormes (Brad), her daughter Lara Kirk, her son Dan (Joelle), and her grandchildren Aimee, Nicole, Stefanie, Zachary, & Mackenzie, her brother Dennis McElroy (Willa) as well as her close friend Sandra Seminoff & by Carolyn’s constant companion, Salsa Verde. She will be greatly missed by all. At her request there will be no services. The family would like to thank Drs. Cochrane and Malpass along with the 3rd floor staff at both KLH and KBRH for their compassion and excellent care. If desired, donations may be made to the Nelson SPCA or the KLH foundation in her memory.
