It is with great love and deep sadness, the family of Carol Scott (nee Fredrickson), share the news of her passing. Carol died peacefully on January 3, 2023 at the age of 57, surrounded by loved ones.
Carol was born in Ottawa, ON and lived her early life mostly in Cold Lake, AB then in 1997 moved to Calgary. Carol brightened the days of everyone she met with her infectious smile and boisterous voice. She showed a genuine interest in everyone she met and would always help as best she could. Her kindness and compassion made all feel welcome. Her grandchildren, known as “the three D’s” (Dyllan, Dominic, and Damian) were the light of her life.
Carol is survived by her sister, Anna April (Mike April); two daughters Sarah Ashton (Matt Ashton) and Sheri Scott; and three grandchildren, Dyllan Scott, Dominic Possberg and Damian Possberg. She is predeceased by her parents Robert Fredrickson and Sarah Fredrickson (nee Scott).

We are so very sorry for your loss. Carol was one in a million. RIP my friend. You will be missed by all
Carol you will be truly missed. I was honoured to be counted amongst your many friend! Your laugh, sense of humour and your ability to see the good in everyone and every situation was a rare and unique gift! I’m so grateful our girls made us connect and I will do my best to support Sheri through this difficult time. My condolences to Sarah, Carol’s Grandsons, and April. Sending Love to all!
Sincere condolences to all of Carol’s family! She is fondly remembered from my days as her neighbour in Cold Lake. We lived in the same duplex in Martineau. We sure had some laughs, and I’ll cherish those times, as well as our contact over the years on Facebook. Praying for peace in all the hearts who mourn her passing, and who will cherish her memory. Hugs sent from my heart to yours!

Carol shared usually 2 days a week with us. Carol bowled in a fun league every Sunday night for at least 12 years. Anna and I enjoyed many outings with Carol to watch the Calgary Hitmen, this photo was at a Calgary Roughnecks Lacrosse game, concerts at Grey Eagle like Tom Cochrane, horse races at Century Downs & Casino, trips to watch World Curling Finals and pretty much anywhere there was food. Anna (her sister) and I were always surprised how she would easily integrate with each new person she met. To date, people have always commented how jovial, pleasant and warm-hearted she was. She may no longer be with us but her examples of love and kindness will serve as models to follow. You will be missed. May you be dancing with mom & dad in heaven. Go ahead and get the party started.
Oh my love. I miss you. You were a best friend for over 30 years, I will always cherish the memories of the fun things we did, remember triple Yahtzee? Hours and hours and giggles and more giggles. Rest easy, Carol. You now have peace and a clear mind and no pain. You deserve it! Love you, always and forever
Sending love to all of you. She was an amazing lady! Brandon and Ryan loved her hugs during YBC bowling. God speed 💜
