Truant, Carol Maurene
May 30, 1942 – February 15, 2020

Carol Maurene Truant was born in Port Alberni, British Columbia. She was born to Laurene Annie Schug and Maurice Lloyd Truitt and was the eldest of 4 children.

Carol was a great help to her Mom and Dad when the family lived in Copper Mountain, just south of Princeton, BC. The mining house the Truitt family lived in was a one-bedroom, 3 room shack with a pump below the hill where water was carried up from, and an outhouse in the back. Good memories were made to the children, with Mom, Laurene’s homemade gifts and birthday parties, pet dog named Monkey, and colored baby chicks each Easter.

Carol helped a lot with caring for her 3 younger sisters and got paid 7 cents a week to spend at the miner’s confectionary. She went to a one-room school in Copper Mountain and received her first communion there.
She would play the accordion, while her dad played the harmonica and pots and pans for entertainment for fellow miners, while the little ones slept, or tried to.

When the mining there was declining in 1955, she moved with family to Hillcrest, Alberta where she attended local schools, graduating in grade 12. She married her boyfriend, John Truant and lived in Bellevue until she moved to Calgary around 1974. She got her degree in Social Work at that time.

Carol passed away at the age of 77 on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at Foothills Hospital in Calgary, Alberta.
Carol is survived by her mother, Laurene Annie Schug; sisters, Janice Hancock and Annette Triutt-Avoledo; her son, Darcy Truant; daughter, Lavonna Hogan; her grandchildren, Kayla Truant, Ashley Truant, Samantha Truant, Jeremiah Hogan, and Cayleigh Vaillancourt; several nieces and nephews; many close friends including Cary Rae, Austin Hook, Edie Prytula and countless more.

She is predeceased by her father, Maurice Lloyd Triutt; sister, Marvis Truitt; sons, Randall Truant and Jarren Truant, and her grandparents.

Carol had many good qualities, helped countless people throughout the years, and will be missed by family and friends.

Carol's Memorial Service has been postponed for now, and the date will be announced when confirmed.

Carol . I have so many memories of the past ten years since we met. We have done so much together . We fought and laughed through many things life gave us , and the traveling from province to province in the beginning of our friendship. I tried to give you the best I could give . You were my strength and I admired your determination and fight for life . You did so much for others and never thought twice about it . I love you , you taught me a lt of life and myself . I will always admire you and your heart , It was the biggest I have ever known or seen in my life . I can not say I love you loud enough for the world to understand , unless they know you as I got the privilege you allowed me to know you. I miss Carol . Love always , Your best friend , Cary

Carol and I used to phone each other in the middle of the night every week to keep company in the last year of her life. Although she had many friends she helped me through a very difficult time in my life and I loved her dearly. All my love and blessings to the family.
