THOMSON, Carley Eleanor


Carley Eleanor Thomson
12 February 1928 – 7 February 2021

Beloved mother of Kelly, Kenny, David, Carel; grand-mother of Kelsey; great grandmother of Cash Emory and wife of Ian (1927-2018) passed in Winnipeg, attended by  the caring staff at Grace Hospital. 

Thanks especially to Carley’s stepson Dr. Ian R. Thomson (ret.) for his care and assistance. 

A frequent visitor to Salt Spring she will be remembered and missed by family and many friends.  

Carley served in the Canadian Forces and was a 75 year Legion member as well as a devoted community volunteer. Her leadership and mentoring was apparent through a long association with Toastmasters International. Having raised her family as a single mother, love came to Carley later in life with firefighter and former RCAF fighter pilot Ian. They enjoyed a warm relationship that took them on travels and adventures around the world. 

In our hearts forever. 

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Legion.
