In memory of Carole Ann Ternent (nee Jones)
Carole was born on 5th May 1965. Born Carole Ann Jones to Margaret Jones and John Alfred Jones.
Carole was the second eldest with Stephen the eldest. Paul the third and Mandy the youngest. Carole’s earliest memories revolved around Barnet walk in Crewe, when she was young, reminiscing times on the square with names from old, only those on her Facebook page will remember the good times as kids getting into trouble and parents on the gates. Carole spent a lot of time visiting her Nan and Granddad. Country music from a bygone era was played over and over again remembering the happy times with them.
I met Carole in 1982 and after a very short romance, we married in 1984 and moved to Germany where I was serving with the 9th / 12th Royal Lancers. Our first child Stacey Ann entered our world on 23rd June 1985. Followed by Lisa Marie on 12th July 1987, Ashley Danielle on 16th July 1990 and Paige Leanne Margaret on 17th December 1993. All the girls have been mothered and moulded by Carole and now exhibit qualities that only the best mum could have instilled. Carole was a doting “nanny” to grandkids Charlie, Rylee and Alice.
Carole was diagnosed with Melanoma of the skin in October 2010, after numerous operations to remove the growth and associated surrounding areas including lymph node dissection, Carole was discharged to receive follow up reviews. In December 2013, Carole noted symptoms in her spine and shoulder that were worrying. After many weeks of pain management, in March 2014 we received the devastating news that Carole’s cancer had returned, in it’s metastatic form the cancer was to spread.
Throughout the early summer Carole had treatment at both The Christie Hospital in Manchester and The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthapedic Hospital in Oswestry. The treatment was harsh and brutal. Carole never relented and was hoping to have immunotherapy treatment to ease the side effects of the cancer spreading. On 18th August 2014 we were informed that further treatment was no longer an option and to return home with her family to enjoy some “quality of life”.
Carole’s wish was to die at home with her close family by her side. Carole passed away peacefully on 25th August, Carole was always first to listen to others woes and to give advice. A “Facebook fanatic” with many friends and followers she was able to hide the truth about this horrible disease from them all with her cheery upbeat comments and status updates.
We who survive aim to keep Carole’s memory alive by adding memories, pictures and videos. We hope those that visit her memorial take time to look in on her page and remember the good times enjoyed.
