Carmen died peacefully with her loving daughter by her side, at Soldiers Memorial Hospital, Orillia, on Wednesday, November 4th, 2020, in her 82nd year. A special thank you to the caring and compassionate nurses on Soldiers 1 at SMH who made her week in the hospital more comfortable for her and for her family.
