Carol Butcher, 59 Carol Butcher, 59, a retired registered nurse, died November 22 at Brockville General Hospital following a long illness with cancer. She was born Carol Sandra Noyes on February 21, 1945 in Belleville, the only child of Robert and Freda Noyes. She was raised and educated in Belleville, graduating from Quinte Secondary School. She attended the Oshawa School of Nursing and graduated as a registered nurse in 1967. On her graduation she was awarded the G. W. Bird award for demonstrating proficiency in surgical nursing. She married her high school sweetheart, Edward "Ted" Butcher, on August 26, 1967 at the College Street United Church in Belleville. After the wedding they returned to Oshawa, remaining there for two years. While in Oshawa she was employed by the Oshawa General Hospital, where she worked as an operating room nurse. On returning to Belleville, she continued working in the operating room, as an operating room nurse at Belleville General Hospital. She spent the remainder of her 33-year nursing career employed by the Belleville General Hospital and Quinte Healthcare Corporation. At the time of her retirement in May 2000, she held the position of clinical co-ordinator for the surgical program. She was very active within the nursing profession, as a leading member of RNAO (Registered Nurses Association of Ontario) and CINA (Canadian Intravenous Nurses Association). At the time of her death she held the position of accreditation director, while sitting on the board of directors of CINA, a national organization. While away from her work and during her retirement, she enjoyed gardening, outdoor activities and watching sunrises and sunsets with her husband at their home on Wollaston Lake at Coe Hill, Ontario. She also enjoyed travelling, completing numerous cruises to the Caribbean and the Alaskan coast and making multiple trips to the Rocky Mountains in the Banff/Canmore area of Alberta. The one interest greater than any other was her grandchildren, Dylan and Lauryn, with whom she loved spending time. It was her love of her family and grandchildren that led her to relocate to Brockville with her husband in June 2003. She remained in Brockville until the time of her death. Mrs. Butcher is survived by her husband Ted, son Jason and his wife Camille and grandchildren Dylan and Lauryn and her father Robert. She was predeceased by her mother.
