Breen, Carolyn Patricia

April 12th, 2016

Passed away peacefully at the Victoria Campus of London Health Sciences Centre in the early hours of Tuesday, April 12, 2016, in her 64th year.  Carolyn will be fondly remembered by her husband Ron and family members: dear sister of Gwenyth Duhn of Kingston; Colleen Duhn of Caledon and brother Russell Duhn of Fairview, Alberta.  Champion and cheerleader for nephews and nieces – Christopher Abbott of Kingston; Meghan Abbott of Toronto; Derek Clouthier of Cochrane, Alberta; Jessica Cameron (Duhn) of Calgary, Alberta and Travis Duhn of Peace River, Alberta.  Daughter of Arthur Duhn and Roberta Duhn (pre-deceased) of Arnprior, Ontario. 

Carolyn spent many years with various Toronto based telecommunications companies and moved to London in 1989 following her marriage in 1988, where she continued working in the industry until early 2000.  She was the chief architect on a number of fronts – housing construction, design, interior decorating, and landscape design to name but a few. She was also the unofficial family diva on the shopping and fashion front, providing leadership and guidance to her surrogate daughters [nieces].  The cottage and boating were also a big part of her life as well as enjoying winter time in Florida in recent years.

On June 9th there will be a celebration of life event hosted at the London Hunt and Country Club from 4 to 6:30 pm; everyone is welcome to join her family to share your thoughts and memories of Carolyn.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Alzheimer Outreach Services Subsidy Fund at McCormick Home would be greatly appreciated.

James MunnI'm so sorry for your loss Ron and all Carolyn's Family. Carolyn was such a wonderful lady, she gave me my first job watering her flowers at the cottage as a boy, she just loved her gardens. She is now your angel and looking out for you all.

Robert VowelRon we were so saddened to hear the news of Carolyn's passing. As we all grow older we look forward to the golden years, and for some they never seem to last as long as we would hope. In Carolyn's case, although she was taken so early, the times we spent with her will always bring a smile to our faces. We shared some great times at the cottage, along with the times we boated and for that we are grateful. She will be missed.
