In Loving Memory of
April 5, 1946 – December 19, 2013
Carol Toth passed away at Royal Inland Hospital after a brief illness. She leaves behind her life partner, Les Toth, as well as daughter Mona Toth (Chris).
Born in Prince Rupert, B.C., Carol was a resident of Clearwater for about 40 years. A big part of that history involved Carol and Les working together at the Vavenby Division of Weyerhaeuser. They both drove forklifts, but they always managed to keep home life and work life separate. Carol dedicated much of her energy to being the union rep, as well as developing ways to “out forklift Les.” One day they had a race to see who could load the cars quicker. Les won, but (according to Carol) only by playing “every trick he knew … he dropped his dunnage in front of me, revved his engine, ran into me….” Carol acknowledged that Les was the fastest forklift operator, and Les declared that “Carol was the neatest … no man could stack lumber like Carol.”
