Carol Jean Frost
November 21, 1947 – January 9, 2023

 

Carol Jean Frost of Edmonton, Alberta, went to be with her saviour, Jesus, on Monday, January 9th, 2023, at the age of 75 years, just a few months after being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.

 

Carol was known by those who loved her as Mom, "Big" Grandma, Great-Grandma, daughter, niece, cousin, and friend.

 

Carol was born on November 21, 1947, in Tisdale, Saskatchewan. She was the only child of Harold and Dorothy Frost (née Woolsey). At the age of five, Carol and her mother moved to Edmonton, Alberta, where Carol continued to reside for most of her life. Carol spent much of her childhood visiting with her maternal grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins in Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. As an only child, Carol was blessed to have had several cousins close in age with whom she could have sibling-like relationships.

 

Carol's early years were marked by tragedy when her father, Harold, was killed in a work-related accident just seven weeks before her birth. Her father's absence was felt throughout her life. Therefore, Carol was grateful for her maternal uncle, Harvey, who was like a father to her. Carol became a Christian as a little girl and grew up believing that she would be at peace in Heaven with her Heavenly Father after this life. This belief stayed with her until her passing and was the source from which she drew the strength to cope with adversity and to live the last few decades of her life as a teetotaler.

 

Carol was married to Kenneth Dangerfield in 1964 (divorced in the late-1960s). Together, they had two children: Aubrey in 1965 and Renée in 1968. Carol later married Bryan Steadman in 1973 (divorced in the mid-1970s). They had one ectopic pregnancy that did not reach full term.

 

Carol was a homemaker for most of her life and briefly worked in the food service industry in her young adulthood. She was keenly interested in psychology and attended Grant MacEwan college for a time in her early 30s. Carol enjoyed travel and had two great adventures outside Canada during her life. At 16 years old, she and her mother boarded a train in Edmonton, traveled across Canada, and onward to New York City, where they visited with family and toured the big city. Her next adventure was overseas to visit her daughter Renée and family in Göteborg, Sweden shortly after her second grandson was born. Carol also traveled throughout Canada and had extended stays with Aubrey in Kelowna and Renée and Dylan in Burnaby.

 

Despite her difficult early years, Carol was known by those who loved her for her warm smile and for having a caring and generous nature. She was keenly intelligent and an avid reader of the classics, psychology, and philosophy in her early adulthood. She also appreciated late-night giggles. She loved animals, gardening, long walks, deep conversation, her KJV bible, a good debate, M.A.S.H., British television/film, 100 Huntley Street, fresh lilacs in the kitchen, and her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was generous with her family and friends. She would give you the shirt off her back and help in any way she could. Carol was not afraid to stand up for the underdog or for anyone she believed was being treated unjustly; she could be fiercely protective. Carol also loved music and often had the radio or a record playing when her children were young. She also attended many live music events in Edmonton, including the very first Edmonton folk music festival.

 

Carol is survived by her mother, Dorothy; her children, Aubrey Dangerfield (Carleen) and Renée Dangerfield-Allen (Brad); grandchildren, Dylan, Gibson (Nicole), Nolan, Bridgit, Madeleine, Kieran; and, great-grandchildren Caleb and Elyse.

 

Carol's family would like to thank her case manager, Danessa, and the Palliative Homeware team of Alberta Health Services; Your Good Companion care team; the In-casa care team; the entire staff team at Foyer Lacombe Hospice; and our dear friend Janet Zilm, RN, who visited mom when we were ill and not allowed to be at the hospice, and then called us when mom was in her final hours so we could go and be with her.

 

Carol’s wish was to have a private green burial at Northern Lights Cemetery and a small backyard gathering of loved ones in the summertime.
