Ross-Harms, Carol Diane

Ross-Harms: Carol Ross-Harms was born November 17, 1952 in Souris, Manitoba to her wonderful parents Cecil and Mary Ross. She passed away on February 10, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer. She will live on in the memory of and continue to inspire her loving partner and spouse Nelson Ross-Harms; her three sons, their spouses and her grandchildren: Cris, Tara, Chloe and Lily; Shawn and Arija; Wade, Erin, Cameron and Liam; and her adopted families Augusto, Adriana and Lucianna; and Javier, Cristinna, Juanita and Isabella; her dad Cecil Ross; her brother Bruce Ross, his wife Vanessa and their children Andrew, Aisha, Stevie and Jared. Carol was a loving inspirational person for all of us who knew her well and for anyone who interacted with her. Carol was a talented and devoted musician and she inspired her family (both home and abroad) students and friends over many years of teaching. Carol was actively and passionately involved with the Souris Arts Council, Souris Multicultural Society and the Souris Beautification Committee. As a family we would like to recognize and thank all the institutions, organizations and friends who have supported us over the long years of Carol’s illness. We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to: Dr. Cram: Brandon Cancer Care (Dr. Duploy, Dr. Mollar and all the nurses and staff); the Souris Hospital with its compassionate caring nursing team; and the numerous friends (too many to list by name) who have supported us during our time of loss. We would also like to recognize and thank Rev. Wendy Rankin and her partner Ron Friesen for their loving and compassionate attention. In memory of Carol charities and organizations that we have chosen to support are; Souris Arts Council, Souris and Glenwood Multi-Cultural Organization or the Souris Hospital.

Thank you so much,

  14. We were saddened to hear of the passing of Carol. We had such a nice visit with her this summer at our family reunion. She seemed to give strength to those around her as she hosted a wonderful afternoon of reminiscing and sharing stories. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  15. I went to school & played in band with Carol. In recent years I would meet Carol at the pool when we were in Souris visiting my mother in law, Anne Davidson. My grand daughters were with me as were Carol’s grandchildren with her. I so admired her wonderful uplifting attitude. With zeal, she described the programs she was active in. Please know, she inspires me & I am very sorry for your loss. On behalf of my husband and myself, please accept our heartfelt sympathy. Brenda Davidson, Salmon Arm BC

  16. According to my Ross family tree, Carol was my 3rd cousin once removed. Her brother Bruce visited us on February 13, 1994, and we were impressed by the lentil business in which Carol and Nelson shared in business on the old family farm. We met Cecil and Mary, Carol’s parents, as well as Bill and Zella, her grandparents, during our family’s trip out west in 1974. A greater family would be difficult to find anywhere!
    My fondest wish would be to keep in touch with descendants.

  17. Mrs. Ross Harms was my band teacher in high school. I just read about her passing in the BU Alumni News. She was always one of my favorite teachers, her love for music affected us all. My thoughts and condolences go out to her family and friends.
