Carol Lynn Matthews

April 7, 2021


Carol Lynn Matthews, affectionately known as Mama to everyone who walked through her door, passed away at the age of 72, at her home Wednesday, April 7, 2021.

Mama was born September 5th, 1948, in Vancouver, BC, to Elmer and Alpha Matthews.

Mama had a love of life and enjoyed the simple pleasures; reading a good book, sewing, watching a cheesy Hallmark film, telling life stories, baking, hockey, and more than anything, her grandchildren. Carol is survived by her beloved daughter Andrea; son-in-law, Michael; grandchildren, Kelsey, Fletcher, and Lucas; and grandpuppy Dexter.

Mama will be remembered for her sense of humor, bold opinions, her selflessness – especially when it came to her grandchildren, her cookies and butter tart squares, her desire for the Vancouver Canucks to just “shoot the damn puck” on the powerplay, and for those who knew her, “the look.”
