Obituary of Carol Anne Hrabak

Carol Anne Hrabak

(February 12, 1952 - August 29, 2023)


Carol Anne Hrabak of Ferintosh, Alberta, passed away on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, at the age of 71 years.


Carol is survived by her children, David Howe (Sheena) of Lethbridge, and Lisa Tory (Carl) of Camrose; sister Barb Sledz (Roger); her grandchildren, David, Alisha, and Dustin; niece and nephew Sonny Hrabak (Cindy), and Rhonda Reid (Howard); and their families, along with her special friend and companion Brian Wing.

Carol was predeceased by her parents Anna Marie Hrabak and John Hrabak; her brother Andrew; sister Alice; and also, her partner of many years, Mike Tchir.


Carol was born in Camrose to Anna and John Hrabak on February 12, 1952, and was raised on the family farm.  She attended Edberg School and later NAIT, where she completed her Meat Cutting Course.  She worked in the local Co-op Stores as a meat cutter before moving to a job with Stelco in 1981, where she worked until she retired.   While she worked a full-time job and raised her children, her heart pulled her back to her family roots.  She honoured those roots by raising cattle and planting her gardens every year.  She enjoyed painting, snowmobiling, cruising around the farm on her side-by-side, the Sunday afternoon request line on CFCW, and watching her Toronto Blue Jays.  Her love of family and friends and gathering with those people was documented in the many, many photo albums she kept, which are such a gift to her family.


While her health limited her mobility in her later years, Carol enjoyed keeping in touch with family and friends by phone and Facebook.  She always maintained those connections.  Those calls and messages will be missed, as will her sense of humour.


A Celebration of Life was held at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, September 13, 2023, at the Burgar Memorial Chapel, officiated by Pastor Jeremy Osterwalder. 

If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Carol's memory may be made to the Alberta Heart & Stroke Foundation.
