Carolyne is predeceased by her father Carl Gorlick and her mother Patricia Holder Gorlick. A celebration of life is being planned later for friends and family. With her numerous friends and family throughout Canada, England and Sweden, Carolyne enjoyed a loving, fulfilling life, enhanced by her unwavering social justice concerns expressed through her community actions as well as through her academic teachings and research in social work at King’s College. In the midst of all this she managed to devote time to developing an extensive and much admired garden, enjoy long walks, paint, actively engage in the Totem’s book club, and document many aspects of her family’s past, as well as care for her current family. In keeping with Carolyne’s deeply held sense of social justice and community commitments, the family requests that donations be made to London’s Women’s Community House or a charity of your choice. Remember Carolyne lovingly as she thought lovingly of all of us. Online condolences may be made at Mount Pleasant Cemetery (London).
