In Memory of 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.
