Carol Ann Cairns

Carol Ann Cairns

It is with tremendous sadness that the family of Carol Ann Cairns announces her sudden passing on December 17th, 2023, at the age of 80.

Carol was predeceased by her father Borden Cairns, her mother Elra Cairns, 2 brothers, Ottie and James Cairns, her sister Elra Jensen, and her best 4-legged friend Nikita.

Carol leaves behind her sister Ella Acheson, 5 children, Tammy Morrison (Richard), Edward Gullison, Barbara LaChapelle (Russ), Gerald Gullison (Debra), John Gullison Jr (Lisa), 12 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren.

Besides her strength, resilience, wisdom and no-nonsense advice, her love for animals, flower beds, and the kitchen are what set her apart.

The cookie jar was never without fresh cookies that were made with a love that none of us will ever forget.

If you ever got to visit with her, you came away with a full belly, greater wisdom, cheeks that hurt from smiling and a full Tupperware container, possibly your laundry folded, your dishes done and maybe even your bed made.


Donations in Carol’s name can be made to the Mae Bachur animal shelter or to a charity of one’s choice.

At her request there will be no visitation or funeral.

    Rest in Peace Mom
    Here are a couple poems we thought were fitting:
    We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name,
    In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
    It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone.
    For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
    You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide.
    And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
    Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
    But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

    Weep not for me though I have gone
    into that gentle night
    Grieve if you will, but not for long
    Upon my souls sweet flight.
    I am at peace, my soul’s at rest
    There is no need for tears
    For with your love I was so blessed
    For all those many years.
    There is no pain, IN suffer not
    The fer is now all gone.
    Put now these things out of your thoughts
    In your memory I live on.
    Remember not my fight for breath
    Remember not the strife.
    Please do not dwell upon my death
    But celebrate my life.
