Carole Lee Caniford passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday, August 28, 2018. Carole had been living a life of retirement since retiring from WakeMed and Maria Parham as a nurse for over 40 years. Carole received her nursing degree at James Madison University in Virginia where she was born. Carole was an avid lover of animals especially horses and dogs. She trained and showed horses for a number of years winning many awards throughout those years. Many knew Carole as a wonderful cook as well as canner of a variety of fruits and vegetables. Friends often would say she should have a show fondly named “Canning with Caniford”. Carole loved her yard filled with fruit trees, she loved her friends and she especially loved the beach.
Carole was predeceased by her good friend Judy. She is survived by her mother, Harriett. Carole was one of the most honest and direct people on earth and you clearly knew if you were her friend. You knew more if you were not. Our friend will be greatly missed.
A service will be held at 11:00 a.m Saturday, September 8th at Bright Funeral Home 405 S. Main St. Wake Forest, followed immediately by a celebration of her life at Pat Murnane’s Restaurant in Wake Forest. As Carole would leave us with “No Foam”.
In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in her name would make her smile.
