Obituary of Carolyn Rebecca (Boyd) Rockwell
Age 44, of Hantsport, passed away suddenly on Friday, July 13, 2018. Born in Kentville, she was a daughter of Elaine (Johnson) Boyd and the late Larry Boyd.
Carolyn graduated from King’s County Academy in 1992, subsequently studying French at Laval University. She graduated from CompuCollege with Honours in 1998 and received a certificate in Local Government Financial Administration from Dalhousie University in 2017. She has worked for the Town of Windsor for the past seven years recently in the capacity of Accounting Assistant. Carolyn was a devoted mother and encouraged her boys to enjoy life as much as she did. She was deeply loved by her family and will be greatly missed. Committed to a job which she loved, she was appreciated by everyone in return. She embraced a wide circle of friends with her great sense of humor and a large laugh straight from her heart.
Besides her mother, Carolyn is survived by her two sons, Boyd and Donald and their father, Brian; sister, Lara (Beto Cabrera), Japan; brother, Ashley (Patricia), Ottawa; niece, Yasmine Cabrera; nephews, Malcolm, Farley and Darwin Boyd.
