We Remember

BISARO, Carolyn Marie

October 23, 1960 — November 17, 2014

Carolyn passed away peacefully on November 17, 2014 knowing she would once again be with her pride and joy, her reason for life, her son, Geordie James Sutherland, who sadly predeceased Carolyn on June 2, 2007.

Carolyn is survived by her wonderful husband Michael Cooney; step-daughters: Tymara Cooney and Kimberly Sutherland; also survived by her loving brother Rick Bisaro. Carolyn will be deeply missed by the Bisaro family – the Cooney families and her good buddy Bill. Carolyn was a selfless woman who helped every child who needed her. She had the biggest heart in all of Rutland. “Big Momma” took two special kids into her heart and home. Robby Bishop and Quincy Raffel. No Service by request. The family would like to thank the Kelowna Hospice House for their support and wonderful care given to Carolyn. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Carolyn’s Memory to BC Children’s Hospital, Kelowna Hospice House or Kelowna S.P.C.A.

    Carolyn dated my brother Bryon when I was younger and she never treated me like anything less than a sister. She always made me feel special and was constantly doing thoughtful, creative things for us. I cried when I found out they were breaking up. I loved her dearly and am so sorry for your loss. She will always have a special place in my heart.

    No longer in Kelowna but once in a while I check castanet obituaries to check if any of my deceased parents friends have passed on. So shocked to see Carolyn’s name. We were just casual friends in junior high school(KLO)and I will always remember her as being super cool. A sweet little rock and roller. Rest in Peace Carolyn. You made an impact
