Carol  McNiven 1948 ~ 2020

It is with great sadness to announce that Carol Ann Mae McNiven passed away peacefully at the Riverview Care Centre in Medicine Hat on Monday, December 7, 2020, at the age of 72 years. Carol is survived by her loving husband, John Thomas McNiven; children, Wendy Egeland, Laura (Jeffrey) Gray and John (Chelsey) McNiven along with her grandchildren, Skyler McNiven-Berwick, Drew Egeland, Cassidy Egeland, Ashley Gray, Devonee Gray, Weston McNiven and Brinley McNiven as well as four great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her siblings, Milton (Carol) Severtson, Darlene (Dave) Beler and Sharon (Fred) Brade as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Carol was born on February 11, 1948, in Taber, Alberta but grew up in the Enchant area. She was quite athletic as a teenager and loved baseball. Carol met John (her honeybunny) at a dance party in Vauxhall when they were just 17. They got married in 1967 and lived and raised their family in Vauxhall. Carol had a zest for life and a great sense of humour. She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren and would do  anything she could for them. Carol was a kind and generous person who enjoyed visiting and would often “drag” her children across the countryside to visit great-aunts, uncles and friends. She even taught some of her grandchildren how to drive (unbeknownst to their parents) but more importantly, she taught her family how to love and what it felt to be unconditionally loved. Even throughout her hardships, her family was always the most important aspect of her life. Carol will be forever missed and loved! Due to COVID restrictions, the family is hoping to hold a celebration of Carol’s life later in 2021 once the restrictions have lifted. (Condolences may be expressed by visiting our website at  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Carol’s name may be made directly to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 204, 1865 Dunmore Road S.E., Medicine Hat, AB., T1A 1Z8 or to the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta 526B – 3 Street S.E., Medicine Hat, AB., T1A 0H3.
