Obituary of Carol Champ
It is with great regret the family of Carol Champ (Thirsk) announce her sudden passing on September 7th, 2018 at the young age of 71. Carol was the first child of Frederick and Violet Thirsk born on June 6, 1947, in Tisdale Saskatchewan. Carol worked many hours beside her parents catering many large events. She worked at Church Hill Greenhouse for many years, she was always the one to let you know which plant was what and where it would go; she was the green thumb of the family. She was known for her ceramics and loved to create and teach others how to be creative in their works of art. Carol will be deeply missed by all that knew her. She is predeceased by her parents, Frederick and Violet Thirsk; her infant son, Trevor Champ; sister-in-law, Shirley Thirsk; and nephew, Ryan Thirsk. Carol is survived by her son, Rick Thirsk; grandchildren, Austin, Hailey (great-grandchildren, Violet and Ivy) and Bryce; her sons, Darcy Farnham, and John (Genelle) Champ; grandchildren, Brayden (Courtney), Brodie, and Brooklyn; her son, Kevin Champ; grandchild, Jacob; and her only daughter, April Farnham; grandchildren, Ryley and Chandler; and brothers, Dale Thirsk and Richard Thirsk; Aunt Norma Thompson; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
