In Loving Memory
Carrie Bertha Findlay
January 23, 1943 - February 9, 2023
It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the death of Carrie Bertha Findlay, who passed away February 9, 2023, at the age of 80. Carrie was born on January 23, 1943 to Clarence & Jean Carlson in Canora, SK. She grew up on the farm north of Invermay attending Croydon School. She had 5 siblings: 3 sisters, Myrtle, Connie, and Debbie, and two brothers, Jim and Albert.
Carrie married Donald Findlay on November 3, 1961 in Wadena, SK. Donald worked in construction for grain elevators his entire life and Carrie raised their family. When the children were older, she worked in the service industry, primarily waitressing. Donald & Carrie had 5 children: 3 girls - Janette, Diana, and Pamela, and 2 boys - Daniel and Robert.
Carrie’s hobbies included: reading, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles and watching curling and Blue Jays games on TV. She also liked to play bingo.
Don & Carrie lived in several towns early in their marriage, which eventually brought them to settled back in the Invermay area where they raised their family and where the children attended school. In later years, Carrie lived in Cold Lake, Regina, Canora, eventually purchasing her grandmother/mother’s home in Invermay, where she lived until her passing. Carrie was stubborn, which is a trait shared by some of her siblings and has been passed down to her children and grandchildren. We have all gotten “The Look”, which said it all. Carrie's baking was second to none, especially her famous buns and doughnuts. Carrie was happiest when she was at home, especially when her grandchildren came to visit. The visits were spent with them partaking in her favourite hobbies and baking together. Carrie will be missed by her family and friends.
