Obituary of Carol Ann Siemens
Carol Ann Siemens
(September 20, 1953 - February 6, 2023)
Carol Ann Siemens of Edberg, Alberta, passed away on Monday, February 6, 2023 at the age of 69 years.
Carol was the firstborn to Ernest and Martha Westfall in Camrose. Waiting to meet her in heaven were her parents and son Wade Karl (April 4, 1975 - April 7, 1976).
Carol leaves behind her brothers David Westfall (Lynne); Brian Westfall; twelve Siemens’ brothers-in-law; thirteen Siemens’ sisters-in-law; hundreds of nieces and nephews, who knew they were very loved by their aunty Carol; and her loving and dedicated husband John of forty nine years. They expected to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on April 21, 2023. They met in grade six when the Siemens family moved into the neighborhood, just 1/4 mile down the road from the Westfalls. They were fierce competitors and loved the joy of sports, attending Edberg School, working hard together on the farm at New Norway, and seeing the success of A+ Insulation and Dingman Trucking. How…on earth will Dingman Trucking carry on with her chair empty?
Her favorite titles were wife, mom, and grandma, and in the community, she was a volunteer with Victims’ Services, a fastball coach, a 4-H leader, a basketball coach, an avid curler - skipped many bonspiels, a center fielder, and a hockey taxi to nine boys at once in the family mobile.
She was a born nurse, never took us to the doc until she had the diagnosis and could tell the doc what prescription we needed. She taught the docs what Wade needed. She always said: “Wade taught us way more than we had time to teach him.”
Left to carry on Carol’s memory are her and John’s children Dawn Siemens, Dale Siemens, and Lee (Krystal) Siemens; and eight grandchildren Jordyn and Jeron Auerbach, Jacob, Matthew and Katelyn Siemens, and Landon, Kian and Malia Siemens.
A Funeral Service was held at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, February 15, 2023 from the CityLights Church, officiated by Rev. Brian Hunter. The service was recorded, and accessible at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyIqPqDvpXrJA0E0d-bc3xg?app=desktop.
