Carol Anne  King
King, Carol (nee Missio):

Passed away on May 11, 2020 at Kitchener, ON at the age of 67.

Beloved wife to Gerald.

Educator, musician, academic, seamstress, quilter, baker - Carol was a woman of intellect, insight and wit who did not suffer fools gladly. A fantastic pianist and accompanist, she was sought after by singers and instrumentalists in Canada and abroad. As a junior/intermediate teacher, she was a pioneer in interdisciplinary education, holding specialist qualifications in Visual Arts, Drama, Math and English. Upon retirement, she obtained a Master’s Degree from Trinity College’s Faculty of Divinity (U of T), receiving several awards for academic excellence. Her persuit of a PhD from the same institution was cut short by the necessities of her cancer treatment.

Carol was an alumna of Trinity College (University of Toronto), and the University of British Columbia, and a member of the Retired Teachers of Ontario. Carol’s love of travel and music combined as she participated in choral workshops throughout England, Europe, and Canada. Her second home became the beloved alpine town of Triora, in Italy.
