June 20, 2023

Carol Ann Holden, age 85, peacefully passed away on June 20th, 2023 at her cherished residence in Toluca Lake, California. She is survived by her Brother Robert Sharp, Brother-in-law James Wettaberg, sons Brent and Kelly Holden, daughter Janet McCormack, daughters-in-law Patricia and Catalina Holden, son-in-law Eric McCormack, grandsons Brett and Ryan Holden, and Finnigan McCormack.

Carol and Janet, who were twins, were born to Dorothy (nee Mouat) and Robert Sharp. Carol resided in Sexsmith, Alberta before relocating to Peace River, Dawson Creek, and ultimately settling in Edmonton, where she resided with her beloved husband, Alan Holden. They celebrated their 54th anniversary together before Alan’s passing in 2010.

Carol had a passion for curling and golf, and actively participated in the Oil Wives Club. Additionally, she engaged in politics, letter-writing, and fearlessly expressed her opinions. In her later years, at the age of 73, she decided to move to California to be closer to her daughter Janet and her family. During this time, she formed numerous meaningful friendships and thoroughly enjoyed her new life. Known for her loving nature, sense of humor, and unwavering strength, Carol’s spirit, stories, and songs will be deeply missed. She truly lived life on her own terms.

As the saying goes, nobody truly disappears as long as there is someone left to remember. And even when there is no one left to remember, it becomes inconsequential because it signifies that we are all united together.
