accountant, and her mother, a homemaker, seamstress, and gardener, nurtured her


Carol's professional journey spanned over four decades, during which she dedicated

center stage at family gatherings, radiating the same warmth and love she exuded

personally. Carol had the remarkable ability to make everyone feel at ease, infusing

gatherings with an unmistakable sense of belonging.

An ardent animal lover, Carol's heart overflowed with compassion, but her deepest

affections were reserved for her beloved poodles. Each of these four-legged

companions was lavished with immeasurable attention and unwavering affection, a

testament to her boundless capacity for love.

In the hearts of her dear friends and cherished family members, Carol's memory will

forever linger. She leaves behind her daughters Deborah Connors and Sandy Walls

(Bruce), her son David Walls (Alice), her grandchildren Jayme Walls (Reno), Tanya Walls

(Trever), David Walls (Kimmy), Alexander Walls, Ben Walls, Lucas Walls, Amy Holobar

(Reuben), Noah Johnson and Paul Johnson. Her legacy extends to great-grandchildren

Devin, Andre, Nolan, Alex, Isabella and Sophia. She also leaves behind the father of

her children, Dale Walls and her precious poodle Mimi. Carol’s husband David and son

Mark predeceased her.

In the tapestry of life, Carol May Walls wove threads of love, compassion, and

devotion. Her absence leaves a void, yet her memory will continue to touch lives,
