Obituary of Carol Jean O’Neill
It is with heartfelt sorrow that the family of Carol Jean O’Neill (Cobham), wife of Gerry O’Neill of Quispamsis, announce her passing on Saturday, September 2, 2023, just 4 days shy of her 60th wedding anniversary.
Born in London, England on October 14, 1942, she was a daughter of the late Arthur and Jean (Burnett) Cobham. After immigrating to Canada at the age of six, Carol was raised in Halifax by her foster parents Pat and Frank Stewart. After meeting her loving husband, Carol began to look after many children, she was kindhearted, encouraging, a wonderful sense of humour and gave her family everything they could ever want, and most importantly love. She loved watching hockey and golf. Carol was an avid volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation through canvasing and fundraising. She volunteered at the local Library, Fairvale Elementary School, taught catechism at St. Mark’s Church, and was a member of Beta Sigma Phi, but most of all she loved watching her family grow.
