Carol Elsie (Rossiter) Nelson


Carol Elsie (Rossiter) Nelson
Carol Nelson, 72, of Riverview and formerly of Edgett's Landing, passed away unexpectedly on January 2nd, 2018 at her home.

 Carol was born in Alma, April 8, 1945, the daughter of the late Gordon and Irene (Bernier) Rossiter. She was a member of the Valley Baptist Church. Carol loved being around people and worked retail and the service industry for several years before her retirement. She had lots of anecdotes from her days as an interpreter at the Hopewell Rocks and kept in touch with former co-workers from her days at Sobeys. She loved her family very much and felt blessed when she was with them. She also had a special place in her heart for her little dogs, Patches and Pebbles, who had become a part of her family. Besides her family and dogs, close to her heart was reading a good book at home or at the beach. In the summer, she could often be found spending time at her trailer near the shore, and in winter you could be sure that she would head down south to Cuba for a couple of weeks of sunshine.

 She will be deeply missed by her children, Denise Tingley (Howard) of Hillsborough, Troy Nelson of Moncton and Aaron Nelson (Cathy) of Hillsborough; her treasured grandchildren, Erica (Shawn), Garrett, Alison, Becca, Caroline, Samuel and Alexander and her precious great grandchildren, Summer and Stella; sisters Doreen Steeves of Hillsborough, Jean Taylor of Edgett's Landing; brothers, Malcolm (Ruth) of Alma, John (Bettyanne) of Riverview, Hilyard of Alma, Milburn (Brenda) of South Branch, Earl (Monica) of Riverside-Albert, Roy of Moncton and Eric (Marla) of Alma.  She will also be sadly missed several nieces and nephews.  

Besides her parents she was predeceased by her husband, Herbert "Herbie" Nelson, and sisters, Gertrude and Irene. 

The family will be meeting with relatives and friends for a time of visitation at the Albert County Funeral Home on Friday evening from 7-9pm.  A celebration of her Life will be held at the Valley Baptist Church on Saturday, January 6th, 2018 at 2:00pm with Rev. Wayne Johnson and Rev. Jack Allen officiating.  Following the service the family will be meeting with relatives and friends for further sharing of memories and for refreshments in the Church Fellowship Center. Interment will be in the Fair Haven Memorial Gardens, Moncton, NB at a later date.
For those who wish, donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated. 
Arrangements are in the care of the Albert County Funeral Home, 4130 Route 114, Hopewell Cape, NB, E4H-3K2  734-2780
