It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Carol Mickelberg on June 3rd, 2022.
Born on April 20, 1939 in Halifax she was the daughter of the late Robert and Matilda Doubleday. Carol loved music and would frequently attend the Bluegrass festivals and music Jams with her husband Ernest. She loved to sing and play her guitar, and even though she was shy, she would still get up on stage with the other musicians. She was an avid animal lover and enjoyed watching the different species of birds that frequently visited her back yard. Her dog and cat were a great comfort to her during her time of illness. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her whole world, which she loved each and every one of them so much.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to all the staff of Hospice Halifax for their care and compassion, and also to Cindy Bell (Palliative care team) and all the VON nurses that helped us care for her while she was at home.
