North (Leskosek), Carol

It is with deep sorrow that we share the passing of Carol North. Carol Jean Ernastein was born to Betty and Otto Leskosek on April 5, 1953, in Pincher Creek, Alberta. She was the fourth in line of the eventual 12 children.

Carol’s life was filled with many journeys that took her everywhere from Beaver Mines, AB. to Rimbey, AB. and on to Rocky Mountain House, AB. A stretch in Red Deer, AB. where she had son Collin, soon after back down to Pincher Creek, AB. where daughter Kimberly arrived. Eventually she moved back to Rocky Mountain House where she met and married Wes North in 1984, adding his children April and Rod to her family.

They settled in Rocky Mountain House for many years. After a couple short moves due to Wes’s work they retired in Creston, British Columbia for 12 years, moving once again to Rocky Mountain House in 2017 to be closer to family which was Carol’s true love in life.

She loved being outdoors most, camping, fishing, horseback and quad riding; always including family and friends. Carol had a great love of photography, producing many framed treasures, as well as her unusual love of old cemeteries that she would drag many a family members’ through. Carol was passionate about gardening; she was amazing at it and enjoyed many hours in her many yards. Turning each into a true oasis. She was always ready to give information providing tours to anyone who visited. She proudly shared her tips, tricks and hardworking hands with her loved ones, many of us that knew her have countless late night gardening memories to cherish.

The shining stars in her life though were her children, grandchildren and most of all her great grandchildren. Carol deeply relished every moment spent with them, from teaching how to grow a garden to quiet hobbies shared at her workshop counter, to bouncing on the trampoline, freezing pools and road trip adventures, “to just see what we see.”

Carol will be deeply missed and mourned buy her husband Wes, children Collin, and Kimberly (Tom), stepchildren April and Rod (Jordine), grandchildren Tasia (Wyatt), Gabriel, Kaleb, and Kory, Demitrius, Dolton (Meghan) and Dakota, great grandchildren Addison, Lincoln, Rosie, Aayla, and Kida, her mother Elizabeth (Betty), brothers and sisters, countless nieces and nephews. Carol was predeceased by her father Otto, sister Roxy and dear brother-in-law Vaughn.

No service will be held at this time.

Memorial donations in Carol’s name may be made to the Calgary Children’s Hospital.
