CARRELL, Nancy Jean (formerly McGOWN)
Nancy died peacefully on 10 May, 2005 in Princess Margaret Hospital surrounded by her family.
Nancy was born in Longview, Texas, on 25 July, 1944. She obtained a B.A. from Texas Tech University and an M.L.S. from North Texas State University. She moved to Montreal in 1974 with her then husband, Lee McGOWN, immediately entered the law faculty of McGill University and earned an LLB, LLM and a BCL. After a short time in private practice, she moved into corporate counsel work and eventually became General Counsel, Legal and Government Affairs at Avon Canada. From there she moved to Canadian National Railways as Deputy Secretary, to Celanese Canada Inc. as Vice-President and General Counsel and, finally, to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as Assistant General Counsel. She was a superb manager and all those with whom she worked were devoted to her.
She leaves her husband, John SWAN, who adored her, her daughter, Hilary McGOWN, to whom she was utterly devoted, her step-daughters, Ellen and Amanda SWAN, her mother, Mary Hasty CARRELL, her brother, Bill and his wife Janeen, her sister, Marilyn MARTIN, along with Molly, Min, Sara and Kate, all of whom will miss her greatly.
Nancy's enthusiasm for life was infectious and touched all those who came into contact with her. Her life was characterized by tremendous spirit and courage, by many loyal Friendships and, above all, by generosity, kindness and humour. Those who knew Nancy will never forget her laugh and her delight in jokes.
The family wishes to thank David LOACH and the nurses and other staff of Unit 14B at Princess Margaret Hospital for their kindness, gentleness and compassion.
Celebrations of Nancy's life will be held in Montreal at the University Club on Wednesday, 18 May, 2005 at 5: 00 p.m. and in Toronto at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Building, Front Street, on Wednesday, 25 May, 2005 at 5: 00 p.m.
The family would be very grateful if, instead of flowers, a donation were made in Nancy's name to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.
