It is with loving regret, we announce the death of Carolyn Eileen Day (nee Pile) on November 30, 2018, in her own home with her loving husband and two sons with her.
Carolyn is survived by her husband and loving friend Peter, her two wonderful sons and their families, Richard and his wife Fiona and Kevin and his wife Bonnie, her grandchildren to whom she was “Nana”; Kieran, Cameron, Kyla, Anthea, and Ethan; and her two brothers and their families, Roger and Anne Pile (Elizabeth and Katie), and Dwight Pile and Karen Murtagh (Stephanie and David).
Predeceased by her parents Ronald & Catherine Pile. Besides her lifelong commitment to her family, Carolyn was a deeply committed lifelong volunteer and community supporter through the schools, her churches and the CFUW (Canadian Federation of University Women).
She was a school board trustee in Grey Bruce for 12 years. She filled many roles in her church and in the CFUW over many years. Her CFUW work focused on advocacy for social, environmental, and women’s issues.
She was also an active advocate for the environment through her membership on the Provincial Source Water Protection Committee and the Great Lakes Charter Annex Advisory Panel under the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.
Editor’s Note: I will always remember Carolyn and her smile. Also, when she read scripture at church, her deep resonant voice and clear diction made the readings extra special.
She and Peter always made our choir Christmas ‘get-togethers’ special as they opened their home to us. She will be sorely missed in our church family.
Visitation at the Eagleson Funeral home, Southampton, on Thursday December 6, 2018 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Funeral Service will be held at the Southampton United Church on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 1:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully received for the CFUW Scholarship Fund or to the Southampton United Church. Condolences may be forwarded to the family through www.eaglesonfuneralhome.com
