Rydzewski_Carol(March 20, 1951 - September 25, 2014) - It is with indescribable sadness, that we announce the passing of Carol Rydzewski after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer.

Carol was a fighter and took on her battle with cancer with extreme determination and bravery. Her good humour, empathy and love remained strong to the end. She continued to place the needs of family and friends before her own and she challenged herself everyday to live life to the fullest, continuing to maintain a busy social life.

To Carol, nothing was more important than “ma familia." This meant not just immediate family, but her large circle of extended family and close friends.

Carol had a special gift for dealing with children. This gift made her 30+ year career as a teacher with the HCDSB more of a vocation than a career. During her time teaching, she touched the lives of many children and their families.

Carol was a treasured wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend. She will be forever remembered by husband John, children Jason and Amanda, sister Rosemary O’Keefe (Larry), and sister-in-laws Diane Shepherd (Scott), and Lisa Roberts. She will also be fondly remembered and sadly missed by her extended family and many dear friends. Pre-deceased by parents Jean and John Zulak.
