Dorothy "Ann" Carson of Salisbury passed away peacefully at the Moncton City Hospital at the age of 77 on March 23, 2020 following her battle with cancer. She was the daughter of the late Donald and Dorothy (Goddard) Bulmer and wife of the late Royden Carson.
She is survived and will be sadly missed by her children, Kevin Vickers (Margie) and Tracy Lagace (Charles); grandchildren, Amanda, Katelyn, Natalie and Amber; stepchildren, Scott Carson and Jeffrey Carson (Tammy), sisters Linda Dixon (Wayne) of Sussex and Diane Little of Calgary. Ann is also survived by her boyfriend Stewart Burlock of Berry Mills who was a great partner and comfort to her in the past few years of her illness.
Ann was born in Brighton, England in 1942 and settled in Canada in 1946. Following a career in retail, she retired to Havelock, NB with her husband Royden. She thoroughly enjoyed baking and various hobbies, including: sewing, knitting, embroidering, crocheting, and painting. She would take any opportunity to pass on her newfound knowledge to her family and friends. She also loved playing cards, washer toss and going to Seniors Club where she created lasting friendships. In addition, she enjoyed and received many trophies for her successes in bowling and in darts. She had a green thumb and a knack for taking dried-up seeds from plants and bringing them to life again for the next season. She loved gardening and was known for bottling mustard pickles and making homemade salsa. She would eagerly await each Spring for the hummingbirds to arrive and taught all her grandchildren the sound a Chickadee makes. She loved animals and cared for many stray cats while she lived in Havelock.
The family would like to thank the staff of 4600 at the Moncton Hospital for their care and their compassion towards Ann and our family over the past month as well as the Extra Mural nurses and dieticians that cared for her over the past couple of years.
A Graveside Service will be held at Salem Community Cemetery at a later date due to the current health crisis. Donations to CARMA Cat Rescue Moncton Chapter would be appreciated or a charity of your choice.
Arrangements are in care of the Salisbury Funeral Home (506-372-4800)
