Feb. 29, 1940 – Nov. 25, 2015

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Carol McKean, long time resident of Bentley, Alberta with her family at her side at the Red Deer Regional Hospital on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at the age of 75 years.

Carol is survived by her husband Reiny, daughters Jeanne Stotz (Larry Bergen), Roxanne McKean (Kate Hunt), son Grant (Crystal) McKean, sister Joyce Turnbull, sister-in-law Cathy Palmer, grandchildren Shauna McKean (Shawn Picket), Sheldon Stotz (Melissa Drummond), Amy (Dana) Womacks, Collin McKean (Hannah O’Meara) McKean, three great grandchildren Kaleigh and Jayden McKean, and Ethan Stotz.

Carol was predeceased by her parents Ervin and Agnes Palmer, brothers Dennis and Derald Palmer, step-sisters Francis Stevenson, and Lucille Manley.

Carol had a great love for her family, was a strong support to her many friends, had a great sense of humor, and was always a joy to be with. Carol always saw the good in people and never missed an opportunity to show that she cared.

As a young mother she and her sister Joyce ran the Bentley Hotel coffee shop. Once her three children were grown she joined husband Reiny on his work crew and became the camp cook. She loved her trips to Vegas and her winters in Arizona with Reiny and friends.

A celebration of Carol’s life was shared with friends and family at the Bentley Community Church, on Friday, December 4, 2015. Carol will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

If friends so desire memorial contributions may be made to the Bentley School Breakfast/Lunch Program or to STARS Foundation.
