With wounded hearts, we announce the peaceful passing of a very special woman on February 8th 2023. Carla Fountain was a loved mother, nana, great nana, and a dear friend. Carla was born on August 17th, 1933 and lost both parents at a young age. She was raised in Minden, ON by her grandparents with her aunts, uncles, and her two sisters, Wanda (Garnet) and Wahneeta (Lawrence). Carla's legacy will live on in her children Mitch (Darlene) and Karlan (Brent). She was a treasured Nana to Tyler (Stephanie), Haley (Jason), Todd, and Troy. She will be deeply missed by her great grandchildren Ryan, Lauren, Grace, and Liam. Carla's life was full of love and especially laughter. She was married for almost 65 years to her late husband and partner in crime, Keith. (2020) Their first poolside home in Agincourt was where they shared many great times with incredible friends and family. Their fondest memories were in Algonquin Park on Whitefish Lake. They were always surrounded by wonderful neighbours and enjoyed all the aspects of lake life. Carla will always be remembered for her painted nails, potato salad and her eye for fashion. She was the "cool" Nana. She was a unique woman with too many special traits to be able to list them all. Carla enjoyed country music and playing cards but the best times were spent with her dearest friend Rosetta and her husband Harvey. These friendships were truly cherished. We would like to thank the staff at Muskoka Shores for their kind, compassionate and exceptional care. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date so we can truly honor Carla's life. She was so loved and leaves an imprint on our hearts.
To celebrate Mom's volunteering time at the hospital, donations to the Minden Site - Haliburton Highlands Health Services would be appreciated by the family.
