Obituary of Vernita Elizabeth Carlson
Please share a memory of Vernita to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Vernita Elizabeth Carlson passed away peacefully on March 23, 2023 at the Cranbrook Regional Hospital surrounded by family members. Vernie was 67 years old. She spent most of her life in the East Kootenays, working for Canada Post for many years.
Vernie will be lovingly missed by her sons Monty Carlson and Curtis Carlson and her grandchildren Dyllan, Zack, Aubrey and Beau. Vernie will also be missed by her brothers Andy, John (Sharon), Kelly (Peggy), Ron, and Terry (Kelly) and her sisters Chris (Rick), Jackie (Willie) and Linda (Tom).
Vernie was happiest spending time with her family, especially when any of her numerous nieces and nephews (natural and honorary) were present. Vernie enjoyed gardening, her dogs and anything to do with the outdoors.
The Carlson and the White families would like to acknowledge Vernie's niece Tina White and her brother Andy White, for the devoted care and support they provided to Vernie during her years of poor health.
Vernie was predeceased by her father Gilbert, mother Marie and sister Ellen. Their deaths affected her deeply as evidenced in a poem she wrote.
It broke my heart when you died
Nobody knew it but I cried and cried.
As the years go by, there's only fear
that the others will go before I
So I hide my fears
And pray each day
That the rest of my family
Will be ok
When I leave this life,
I'll say hello to our loved ones
Gone on before.
And I'll be there with them
To greet you at heavens door.
A Celebration of Vernie's life will be held at a later date.
