Bartley, Carol Margaret Ida

Carol M.I.Bartley – nee Shier

On the 19th day of December, a very strong person, kind hearted, fighter until the very end.

Carol was born June 15th 1950 in Oxbow SK.  She grew up in Glen Ewen SK.  In September 1970 she met her lifelong husband Harvey.  Married November 20th 1970.  The 2 of them resided in Carroll MB.  In August 2004 they decided to move to Brandon MB.

Carol passed away peacefully with her family by her side at the Assiniboine Centre.

She was predecesed by her parents Carl and Evelyn Shier of Glen Ewen SK.  Carol was their only child.  Leaving to mourn her passing are her husband Harvey Bartley, oldest daughter Carla (Dallas) Dufrat and 3 children Bryanna and Rylee McRuer and Zach Dufrat. Youngest daughter Marla (Chris), Sierra, and Trinity Rouire.  Along with extended family.

Most of her life has been a battle.  In 1981 she was diagnosed with kidney disease which then was followed by peritoneal dialysis.  In July 1986 she was blessed with a kidney transplant which lasted for 26 years.  In October 2012 the transplant had failed and had to go on hemodialysis.  The last 4 years have been a struggle for her with other diagnosis also.  With all the struggles that she went through, you would never hear her complain!  She has taught us all great life values and how to never give up.  Her favourite saying was,” it’s never so bad that it can’t be worse!”  With all the struggles and hurdles that she went through, she would be the one to know this.

May you rest in peace Mom, your struggles are over!

A graveside service will take place in the spring.

If so desired donations may be made in memory of Carol to either the Dialysis Unit or Palliative Care Unit in Brandon c/o Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation 150 McTavish Avenue East Brandon, Manitoba R7A 2B3.

At this time we would also like to extend a heart warmed thank-you to all the staff at the Dialysis Unit and Palliative Care Unit.  For all the tender loving care that you gave Mom.  She considered you all like family!

    Condolences to all of you on your loss.
    Carol was always fun to be near. While we all knew of her problems she never let on that anything was amiss. She loved to visit and talk. You always knew what was on her mind and her sense of humor was unbelievable.
    Distance kept us apart. The telephone was our means of contact and while the calls we made were infrequent they were so enjoyable. She will be missed.
