IRWIN, Carol Anne (HOWSON)
Wife, mother, grandmother, social worker, board chair, teacher, activist, photographer, humanitarian. Born September 11, 1928, in Utica, New York Died January 4 in Toronto of leukemia, aged By Neal IRWIN, Page L10
From an early age, Carol wanted to nurture and help children.
After earning a bachelor of arts in child study from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York she obtained a master's degree in social work from the University of Toronto. Over the next eight years, Carol was a social worker for the Children's Aid Society in Toronto. It was at the end of this period that she met Neal. They married in 1960 and had four children: Chris, Anne, Arthur and Alex.
While at home raising the children, Carol began building a remarkable collection of children's books and became a talented photographer. She was also an active volunteer, serving on numerous boards of agencies involved in the care of children, including daycare centres, child guidance programs and the Children's Aid Society, where she later served as chairwoman of the board.
She was a political activist for high-quality, publicly funded daycare. Her children have vivid memories of marching in demonstrations alongside their mother.
Carol had a remarkable ability to find humour in almost any situation. When she found one of her young children covered head to toe in zinc oxide ointment, smearing the cream all over the floor, her instinct was not to scold but to reach for her camera. Caught in the Act was the title of the resulting photo.
When her children reached their teenage years, Carol became a teacher in the social service worker program at Humber College. Her love for teaching was matched by her students' love for her.
Later, after her son Alex came out as being gay, she served as president of the Toronto chapter of PFLAG: Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. The enormous value Carol placed on celebrating diversity, and fighting for the rights of all people, made this cause an easy fit.
Carol had an expansive view of family that extended well beyond the walls of her home, a place that became known to many neighbours as Hotel Irwin. It was a hotel with an incredibly lax checkout policy, as Carol opened it to any and all, whether a visiting relative or a troubled teen in need of a safe haven.
She was a surrogate mother, supporting those she took under her wing emotionally and sometimes financially. For Carol, being a mother was the most important job of her life. She had enough love to go around.
Carol endured extremely tough battles over the last 10 years of her life, coping with breast cancer followed by a brain tumour, a small stroke, diabetes and finally acute myeloid leukemia. But her humour and optimism never faltered.
Neal IRWIN is Carol's husband.
