Carolle Marie Trembley
November 8, 1940 - May 22, 2022
I had a wonderful life. I grew up in Bredenbury, a small town in Saskatchewan, in a family with sensitive and supportive parents, Mary and Frank Trembley, and sisters Viv Trembley and B. Roberts. We moved to Edmonton in the 50s where we girls finished high school.
I always enjoyed being a rebel, and I loved being a beatnik and a hippie in the 1960s. Over several years, I lived and worked in Edmonton, Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, and London, in Canada; Sydney, Australia; Portsmouth, Liverpool, and London, in England; and summer in a taverna on the beach in Skiathos, Greece.
I began university at the age of 28 at Simon Fraser University in New Westminster, British Columbia, and finished my B.A. at the University of Calgary. I received my PhD in Psychology at The University of Western Ontario at the age of 48. Mostly I worked with rebellious children and their families, with teenagers in jail, and with (my favourite) probation officers and their clients.
I considered it a miracle when, at the age of 39, I found my wonderful husband, John Palmer, and stepchildren Matthew Palmer, Rachael Connors, and Jacob Palmer. Now there are grandchildren - an unbelievable pleasure - Kayla, Veronica, Cordelia, Phebe, Lara, Elise, and Miles, along with two great grandchildren - Paytyn and Paisley.
I retired in 2002 to rest and relaxation, diets and exercise, and contentment. And I began a search which let me become better acquainted with my cousins, aunts, and uncles.
There is no need to cry for me. Instead, please share my joy at having lived a life filled with wonderful family, wonderful friends, and many adventures. There will be a celebration of life at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London, on Sunday, June 5 from 2-4 pm, with remembrances at 2:30 pm. Please no flowers - if you want to buy flowers, buy them for yourselves and the people you love. And please no donations. Instead, please use the money for a nice evening out, and raise a glass to the good life.
