July 16, 1958 - February 21, 2017

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved wife and sister, Carol

at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, AB, on February 21, 2017.

Carol was born in Golden, BC to William and Nellie (Nolan) Chuback, the 5th of 8


Carol attended school in Golden where she excelled in academics, music and social

sciences. She was a member of the GSS choir, and played the saxophone in the

Honour band that travelled to Spokane for the Expo World's Fair in 1974.

She began her career working in Golden, first at the Yoho Movie theatre and Alpine

Drive-in, then later as a ticket agent for the Greyhound Bus depot.

Anyone who knew Carol knew she was a kind, ambitious and genuine soul who valued

personal relationships above all.

Her work with Greyhound took her to Calgary where she developed a 30 year

relationship with the company, in management and customer service.

It was here that she met her future husband, Kenny. It did not take long for them to

become a couple, and in 1997 they celebrated their wedding with friends and family in

Penticton, BC.

Family has always been a big part of Carol's life and she left her career to care for her

mother at her home in Summerland, where she helped her to live until her death in


We will miss her outgoing nature, her infectious smile and her endless optimism.

Patrick ) Chuback, North Vancouver, Patrick (Carolyn) Chuback, Toronto, Linda (Brian

King) Galpin, Summerland, David (Rena) Chuback, Summerland, Grace (Wayne

Manzer) Mckeeman, Golden, Michael (Lynn) Chuback, Surrey, Donna (Ted) Johnston,

Surrey, her godfather Leo Klafki, as well as all her nieces and nephews, cousins and

others who were very special to her.

A funeral service will be held at Leyden's Funeral Home at 304-18th Ave. SW, Calgary

on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 2pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made in Carol's name to the
