It is with great sadness that we have to report that Carol Cattell passed away quietly in her sleep on the 4th April surrounded by her family. Her children Sam and Jo paid tribute to their mum by saying “We were incredibly privileged to have this wonderful woman as a friend and our Mum. Thank you for everything.” One can only begin to understand the pain that they are feeling.
Carol had been a member of Freedom To Choose (F2C), for over six years. A true supporter of choice in lifestyle choices, her presence was always an inspiration to F2C. Carol lived in both Greece and Yorkshire and the only complaint I ever heard her voice was the oppressive Greek summers! Although their far more relaxed smoking attitudes was a big positive!
I met Carol a number of times and she was a warm, intelligent and hugely entertaining lady. I will never forget when she popped in to visit my partner and me as we went through numerous bottles of red wine and the obligatory packet of cigarettes.
We are all heartbroken. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sam and Jo.
Rest in peace Carol for you have touched so many of us.
