December 9, 1941 — December 9, 2019

Carole Anne (Peddle) Baxter 78 - Albert Bridge
We the family regret to announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Carole Anne Baxter on December 9, 2019 in the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Born in Sydney, she was a daughter of the late Stanley and Violet (Gruchy) Peddle. Carole was employed with Canada Post as a letter courier for 37 years and played on the Canada Post bowling team. Her grandchildren were her life and she spent a great deal of time making her famous cabbage rolls that everyone has come to know. Sitting on her deck with a glass of wine looking out on the Mira River is where you would probably find her.
She is survived by her son Tracey, Whitehorse; daughter Kerry (Joe Landry) MacVicar; Albert Bridge; former husband & life friend Charles, Sydney; grandchildren Mayra, Emily, Taylor and Brandon;  brother Eddy (Jackie) Peddle, Sydney; sister Shirley (Floyd) Matheson, Albert Bridge;
special friend Hughena MacIntyre, Halifax; and sister-in-law/friend Beverly Martell, Maine as well as many special nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, Carole is predeceased by her brother Gordon and two sister-in-laws Nancy Peddle and Lois Peddle
A Celebration of Carol's life will take place from 2-6 pm Saturday, December 21 at the Mira Boat Club.
Memorial donations in her memory may be made to the Cape Breton Cancer Centre of the Regional Hospital.
