Carol Simon was born in Tivoli, St. Andrew’s on February 26, 1972 to the proud parents of Arthur Richardson and Emlyn Simon.  As a child, Carol was kind and respectful; she was a favorite among relatives, friends and villagers.  
Additionally, Carol was unique in a few ways.  On rainy days, Carol was the only child in our community who enjoyed playing in the mud when she was outside.  Moreover, Carol’s brother, Alwin, nicknamed her ‘Madame Defarge” because of Carol's fondness for knitting pretty doilies while other kids in the village would be playing in the yard. 
Carol began her educational journey at the Tivoli Roman Catholic School where she was an excellent student.  She later attended McDonald College, graduating after completing five years of secondary education with passes at the General Certificate of Education (G.C.E.) Examination (Ordinary Level).
In 1991 Carol migrated to the United States and settled in Brooklyn, New York.   There Carol matured into an exceptional adult. 
Carol was employed as a nurse technician at Brookdale Hospital emergency room.  She provided excellent care to her patients and was well loved by the hospital staff.  Carol’s compassion, caring, sincerity and diligence made her an exemplary worker.
Certainly, Carol was quite family-oriented.  She believed that relatives should support each other and care for each other.  Not surprisingly, Carol helped many relative in whatever way she could. 
Carol was a loving and devoted mother, daughter and sister. No sacrifice was too much for Carol to make for the betterment of her son, mother, father, brothers and sister.  Being quite generous, frequently, Carol did without things that she needed, in order to provide for others in need.  
Carol had strong faith in the Lord.  She was a devout Catholic and attended church service almost every Sunday.  Carol tried to instill in her son, nieces and nephews the importance of loving and serving God. 
In the past few years, functioning as an entrepreneur, Carol played a pivotal role in helping her mother start a boutique in Grenville.  Although being thousands of miles away, Carol found the time and recourses to help finance and manage the business.  Given her many other responsibilities, one wonders how Carol found a way to effectively multitask and to manage her time so well.
A major goal for Carol was to become a registered nurse.  In 2006, she began taking prerequisite courses at Staten Island College for enrollment into the nursing program.   Carol studied diligently and was excited about making her career goal a reality.  Unfortunately, this was not to be accomplished here on earth.  
On Saturday, December 15, Carol was suddenly called home to be with the Lord.  Only God knows why Carol left us so abruptly.  Maybe Carol's work on this earth was finished, and now she must go on to other realms to complete other tasks that the Lord already assigned to her.
Of course, our hearts ache with sadness.  While still in a state of shock, our minds seem dazed in disbelief. 
Carol, we thank you for your brief yet wonderful and memorable life with us.  We thank you for your love, for your kindness, for fond memories and for shared joys.  We thank the Lord for honoring us with your presence on earth.  You will never be forgotten.  May your soul rest in eternal peace!
Left to carry on Carol’s legacy of love are the following: 
Son, Kieron; Soul-mate, Clarence; Mother, Emlyn; Father, Arthur; Sister, Atlyn; Brothers, John, Evans and Alwin; Brother-in-law, Alister; Sisters-in-law, Donna, Cynthia, Corin and Shayena; Aunts, Joslyn, Ennis, Maudlyn, Micey, Faith, Catherine (1), Catherine (2), Alqween, Theresa and Loslyn; Uncles, Lewis, Augustine, Lazarus, Withnald, Tourist, Ronald, Winston, Wilmut, Lawson and Darnley; Nieces, Lyndonna, Anika, Nakea, Daniela, Avril and Janniel; Nephews, Shawn, Irwyn, Dwayne, Dillon, Tarik, Simeon, Daniel, Axcel and Kellon, and a host of other relatives, friends, co-workers, and villagers too numerous to mention.
