Carole Ouimette Obituary, Death – We were provided the information that was most discouraging to us on the morning of the Tuesday, one week ago. Unfortunately, one of our fantastic group of volunteers passed away earlier than expected. We are still having trouble wrapping our heads around this, but with her family’s permission, we would want to pay our respects to this great woman. It is a great loss to all of us that Carole Arbour-Ouimette was removed from this world at such a tender age because she was both a guiding light and a good influence in this place.
We just can’t bring ourselves to acknowledge that she is no longer here with us. She had a constant smile on her face, was extremely kind and empathetic, and exuded life in all that she did. Carole was a wonderful foster mom to many different kinds of animals, including both dogs and cats, and she took in a wide variety of species. She was a friend to many people who worked in the field of animal and human rescue, and she always made sure that her door was open to anyone of either species when they needed it.
To put it more bluntly, Carole was the BEST of the bunch. Period. She was able to have a constructive effect on the lives of a great number of individuals, so contributing to the enhancement of the world in which we live. Our sincerest condolences go out to her family as well as to everyone who was lucky enough to count her as a friend. May she rest in peace. Carole, we are going to love and miss you so much, and our words will not be able to express how much we will miss you. I pray that you, my dear buddy, find eternal rest.
