In Loving Memory

Carole Anne Stricker (nee Gieselman)

Carole Ann Stricker (nee Gieselman) of Kamloops BC passed away on September 19, 2023. Carole was born on April 16, 1946, in Chilliwack BC to Cecilia and Hubert Gieselman. She was the only sister among seven brothers. She is survived by her sons Randall (Manja) and Greg, her beloved grandchildren Max and Mimi and her brothers Robert, Lloyd, and Richard along with many loving cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, and her Giesel Soul Sisters. She is predeceased by her parents and brothers Barry, Don, Gerry, and Brian Gieselman.

Carole was a bright light for everyone who knew her. Family and friends could always count on her for support, love, and delicious food. Carole was very dedicated to her faith and was an irreplaceable volunteer with the Society of St. Vincents de Paul and the St. John Vianney Parish. Carole worked at Royal Inland Hospital for many years in the imaging department, and in her later years she loved to serve up Mexican food to multiple generations of Blazer fans at home games. Among her most treasured moments were visits to London UK to be with her grandchildren.

She will be greatly missed.

The family wishes to extend special thanks to the staff at the ICU in Royal Inland Hospital, as well as the staff at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice for their care.

A funeral service in memory of Carole will be held on Monday, September 25th, 2023, at 10:00 am at St. John Vianney Parish – 2826 Bank Road, Kamloops, BC. Donations in Carole’s memory may be made to the St. Vincent De Paul Society in Kamloops, or to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice in Kamloops.

    Carole was such a caring and lovely friend. I will miss bowling with her and drinking wine with her. Although she was good at many, many things, anything to do with a computer was her Kryptonite. I enjoyed helping her through all her internet and phone challenges. She was always so appreciative of whatever you helped her with. She will be missed by many.

    Wow. Some of the things that are said in here and nothing is done. I say something that is truth. It’s not like it’s gonna happen!!

    My condolences to her family and friends. She sounds like a loving, generous sole and a gift to those around her. Wish I had the opportunity to meet her although through stories from Greg almost feels like I had. Looking forward to more stories and pictures of her in the future.

    Having met Carole at the age of nineteen was a magical blessing.
    We remained friends all these years.
    Like a sister, I am grieving her loss. Will miss you and our times celebrating our birthdays.
    Rest in Peace until we meet again. Mary

    Randy and family, I’m so very sorry to hear of your Moms passing. Met her many times years ago, when we worked at Cloverdale, she was lovely. I hope life is otherwise treating you well. Take care.

  9. Carol Adams (nee Wallace) says:

    To Carole’s family, I am sorry to hear of Carole’s passing. We were good friends during out school years and I am happy to say that through our mutual friend and in Maureen’s case a relative of Carole’s we were able to spend
    many visits through out the passing years. Carole was always fun and positive.
    Sad that as these past few years after we lost our Maureen we lost touch.
    My deepest condolences.
