A LA DOUCE MÉMOIRE DE Carol Dianne Milonas
It is with heavy hearts that we sadly announce the passing of Carol Milonas, on July 4th 2022, at the age of 67, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
In retirement from a distinguished career as a public servant for the RCMP, Carol loved doing crosswords, gardening, painting, art projects, gatherings with family and friends, and spending time with her grandchildren. She also cherished every moment spent with the love of her life, Paul.
Beloved wife of Paul Milonas, surviving daughter of Ellen and William Boivin, loving sister to Kenneth Boivin (predeceased), Rolland Boivin (predeceased), Judith Turpin (Len), Douglas (Isolde/Mickey), devoted mother to Troy Milonas (Dominique) and Tammy Milonas (Christian), adoring grandmother to Alicia (predeceased), Anthony, Connor, Jacob, Makayla, Landon and Kayden, and dearest daughter-in-law to Denis Milonas (predeceased) and Jeanne Milonas (Jacques Pilon, predeceased).
Carol will be greatly missed by her son-in-law’s parents Anna-Marie and René Gagné, sisters-in-law Diane Milonas, Christina Milonas (John), Thérèse Kilmartin (Bob), and Pauline Milonas as well as her brother-in-law Richard Milonas (Line).
She will be fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends, whom she loved and cared for deeply. Carol was always there, with open arms, gladly offering a helping hand to anyone and everyone. She was such an incredible, strong and kind woman who has made such an impact on our lives. Saying goodbye will be difficult and she will be missed terribly.
Many thanks and gratitude for all the care and compassion given to her by staff at the Ottawa General, especially the nurses, PSWs, social workers, OTs, doctors and team working on the 6th floor oncology. Sincere thanks for all the attentive treatment given to her by all those from Carefor Home and Community Care Support services, the Home care Palliative care group of Orleans and the Saint Vincent`s Hospital third floor south unit.
Carol requested to be cremated and that her ashes be placed in an urn. Family, friends and loved ones will be received at Heritage Funeral Complex, 1250 Trim Rd, Orleans, on Friday, July 15th, 2022 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. A memorial service will follow in the Chapel at 3:30pm. Guests are invited to wear a little something yellow in honour of Carol as it was her favourite colour and truly represents how much she brightened the lives of all who knew her. There will be a live stream of the service for those who are unable to attend in person and wish to do so virtually.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be welcome.

How do you say goodbye to your dearest friend, like a sister, to whom you grew up with since inphancy.
As we held hands and made our memories in life, know that you didn’t go alone, I was still holding on to your hand, for a part of me went with you, the day God called you home.
I think Paul, Tammy, friends and family all agree, when I say we are all jealous of the angels to have such a loving person among them now.
To my two favourite people that were heaven sent, Paul and Tammy, our sincere condolences to you, your family and friends.
I am heartbroken with the passing of my dear sweet Sister. She was always available for me during difficult times. Although we were miles apart She was always there for me and remained in my daily thoughts. She was my angel on earth and is now my angel in heaven. Glad Len & I had the opportunity to spend time with Carol before she passed. Heartfelt condolences to brother inlaw Paul & neice (daaughter) Tammy.

Dearest Tammy & Uncle Paul,
I am so incredibly sorry for your profound loss. Auntie Carol was such an incredible, bright light of a person. She touched my life in childhood with her constant kindness, sunny disposition, and continuous smiles. I remember her love for gardening, and her big hugs. She left so many beautiful memories behind for all who loved her, and she will be forever in our hearts.
Sending so much love, hugs, and my sincere condolences. ❤️
Carol was such a loving, positive ray of sunshine in everyone’s life.
I will always remember her beautiful smile and the love she had for her family.
Paul, Troy, Tammy and family, please accept our deepest condolences at this time of immense sorrow!
You are in our thoughts and prayers! God Bless.

Paul & Family,
So sorry to hear of Carol’s passing.
Thinking of you and the many good times we had together in Kamloops and of the never ending treats Carol would make. I remember one that I think was called a « Pin-wheel. » So Delicious.
Paul and family: My sincere condolences on the passing of Carol. Thinking of you all at this difficult time.

I was there to see your suffering and all I can do was sit close by and hold your hand. You went away, we had to part. God eased your pain but broke my heart. ❤️❤️❤️
Dear Paul and Tammy,
Sharing in your sadness as we remember Carol, I hope you feel surrounded by much love. Wishing you peace, comfort and courage.
All our love Tina and John ❤️❤️❤️
Carol and I met approximately 25 years ago. She lived just down the street from me. One day while on my morning walk my cocker spaniel Jake kept pulling in the direction of Carol’s house. This would go on every time we went for our walk. So one day I decided to find out what he found so compelling, so I decided to see. I knocked on her door and she said Jake was over quite a few times before. So embarrassed and apologetic I was. Carol didn’t mind at all. In fact she invited me in for coffee and introduced me to her two dogs Koka a large long haired German Shepard ( Jakes favourite) and Taffy, a petite little blond cocker spaniel. And that was the start of our friendship. We both were stay at home moms and we would meet quite regularly for our morning coffee. I loved Carol’s garden and all her little projects she always had going on. She was a crafty, talented lady.
She had a wonderful spirit and loved every creature that came into her yard. She knew they were there to visit and say hi.
I feel blessed that I had her in my life.
Till we meet again my friend.
Paul, Tammy and family. We would like to pass on our deepest condolences to you at the loss of our dear Carol. Like yours, our hearts are broken. 💔
Carol was a lifelong friend of mine. We played together as children, hung out as teenagers and continued our valued friendship as adults with families of our own. Technically, Carol was my niece but being only one year apart, she was more like a sister. Carol was caring, compassionate, soft spoken and multitalented. She was an avid gardener, artist, decorator and homemaker. She welcomed people into her life with open arms and shared her passions with people far and wide. Carol has always held a special place in my heart… and always will. This not goodbye but so long… till we meet again. All our love.

Nos sincères condoléances Paul, à toi et à ta famille. Très triste d’entendre ces nouvelles de Carol.
Our deepest condolences on the passing of a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend! Carol had such a beautiful smile, and would always stop to chat while visiting Tammy and the family. Offering me plant advice whenever I needed it (or plants for my garden!) She enriched the lives of those who crossed paths with her and she will be dearly missed <3
My condolences to you all on the passing of such a beautiful and wonderful woman. She was always so kind to me and made the best food. She also was so wise with advice and always made you smile. She will be greatly missed. Sending all my love and strength to you all during this difficult time. May she rest in peace.
Paul and family, our sincerest condolences for you during this time. Carole will always be remembered for her smile and kind heart. Our heart goes out to you at this difficult time. Wishing you peace, comfort, courage, and lots of love at this time of sorrow. Rest in peace Carole and soar with the angels.
Andre, Diane, James and Sean Milonas
My deepest condolences Paul, Tammy and families. Thinking of you all today as you celebrate the life of your beautiful wife and mother Carole.

Paul, Tammy and family
Just a note simply sharing love and wishing you comfort during your time of loss. Cousin Carol was family that I never really had the opportunity to know as well as many others in our family did. To me, Carol was very kind, caring, happy with a cheeky sense of humor, and very much lovingly regarded by my mom & step dad Gail & Keith Brookfield. Carol will be missed with heavy hearts and remembered fondly.
Much love from Vancouver Island x0
We are so sorry and send our deepest sympathies of the news of Carol’s passing. She was a very close and loving friend and neighbour who was always there for you in any situation.We wish all the best to the family during this sad and hard time and send our love to everybody and know that Carol will be well looked after and was loved dearly as she is now with her Heavenly Father. God bless and rest in peace .
Nos plus sincères condoléances à toute votre famille. Nos pensées sont avec vous tous.
Paul and family, my sincere condolences.
Carol and I were closer when our children were young. Then we both moved to different parts of the country. When we returned, life got in the way and we only saw each other at family gatherings, though my love for her remained.
During her illness I discovered facets of Carol that I had forgotten. Her irrepressible sense of humor often surprised us throughout her suffering. My daughters reminded me of her kindness and her powerful hugs freely given to everyone. She always had an encouraging word to offer.
Carol’s illness brought out the best in everybody. My brother Paul took such good care of her with his patience, understanding and love – it brought tears to my eyes. Carol also leaves her legacy in her daughter Tammy, a positive Angel in her own right.
Carol, you can now watch over your loved ones from above. But first, take a well-deserved, pain-free rest. You will be missed.
Je t’offre mes plus sincères condoléances….Paul!
I am shocked to hear of Carol’s passing today (April 12, 2023). She will be missed. My condolences to family and friends.
