Carolyn Mary Gunn

October 14, 1956 – April 10, 2021
Carolyn passed away suddenly at her home in Nanaimo, BC. Carolyn grew up in Duncan and earned a degree in Psychology from Simon Fraser University. She enjoyed her career as a counsellor in various parts of BC and Alberta and then switched paths and owned a bakery in Vancouver. Carolyn eventually returned to the Island, first to Duncan and then settling in Nanaimo, where she was active as a volunteer for many different organizations.
Carolyn will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Carolyn was predeceased by her father, Dacie Gunn and leaves behind her mother, Laurona; brothers: Cameron (Ann), Colin (Annamarie); sister, Andrea (Stefan), as well as nieces and nephews of whom she was especially fond. Carolyn was known for her generous nature, her quirky sense of humour and her dedication to helping others. She was a good and kind person.
Due to Covid-19 a gathering to celebrate Carolyn will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Diabetes Society or a charity of your choice in Carolyn’s memory would be greatly appreciated. Condolences may be offered online at
