Obituary for Carol Bradshaw (Ryder)


Carol Bradshaw, of Mitchell, Ontario, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family in her 56th year, on Friday, January 6th, 2023.

Beloved wife of Norman L. Bradshaw for 30 loving years. Dear stepmother to Matthew Bradshaw. The loving daughter of June and the late William Ryder Sr. Dear daughter-in-law to Linda and the late Gordon Bradshaw. She will be fondly remembered by her sister Kathleen Bryan-Pulham (Doug), sister Patricia Dawson, and brother William Ryder Jr. (Nga). Dear sister-in-law to Raymond Bradshaw (Lalita), Roger Bradshaw, Michael Bradshaw (Sandra) and Sherry Bradshaw (Ryan). She is also survived by her Aunt Patti and Uncle Larry Joyce and numerous other aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. Second Mother to Jerry, Amanda and Mardelle King. That was a big job!

Besides loving and spending time with her many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews, she made sure that each one of them visited the CNE each year. Let’s just say she was the Grand Marshall. Carol always had a coffee in hand and almost single-handedly kept Tim Horton’s in business with her love for coffee.

A Celebration of Carol’s Life will be held at the Lockhart Reception Centre, 116 Montreal St., Mitchell on Saturday, January 14th, 2023, from 3-5pm with Words of Remembrance to be shared at 4:00pm.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Cancer Society would be appreciated and may be made at

Please come and Celebrate Carol’s life and take time to share your memories with a “Timmy’s”.
