Born in Hespeler, daughter of the late Ernie and Berniece (Carpenter) Lee. Beloved wife of Robert (Bob) Henderson, whom she was married to for 52 years. Loving mother of Diane Henderson (Klaus Willmann), Steve Henderson (Anne Wolf) and Bob Henderson (Cherie Mongeon). Cherished grandmother of Jamie, Reese, Brynn and Nolan. Dear sister of Terry Lee (Lynn Lee), Lorna Renwick (Harry Bast), Gail Russell (Ross Russell) and Joanne Lee. Also survived by her sister-in-law Sheila Henderson and several nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by brother-in-law Ken Henderson.
Carol was a loving mother and person who always put others first as exemplified by her long-term dedication assisting residents at the Cambridge Country Manor retirement home. Carol also dedicated much of her time helping others in need through the Out of the Cold program operated through the Hespeler Presbyterian church. Carol had a passion for music, including playing her keyboard at home and organ at church, and most certainly cherished time singing with her siblings. Carol was a natural athlete who excelled in all sports including tennis and hockey (playing for the Hespeler Angels). Starting at age 56, Carol took up golf, and soon had her first hole-in-one. Carol also enjoyed her time spent with friends in the “Lunch Bunch” and Aquafit.
A private celebration of Carol’s life will be held with close friends and family.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Cambridge Country Manor or the Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
