Carlie Peterson Death, Obituary – Carlie was born on December 8th, 1980, in the city of Lethbridge. She spent her childhood at Barnwell and received her education there. After completing her high school education at W.R. Myers High School in Taber and transferring to Lethbridge, where she attended Lethbridge Community College and majored in Business Administration, she received her diploma in 1998.
After that, Carly uprooted to Calgary, where she enrolled at the SAIT. She earned her degree as an Electrical Engineering Technologist in 2002, and shortly thereafter she found work at O’Rourke Engineering Ltd., where she remained worked up to the time of her departure. She passed away in 2011. Carly has a serious wanderlust. She traveled to many different locations throughout the world, some of which she did on her own, which shocked many of us because she had a reputation for being rather reclusive.
Carly cherished spending time in nature and being physically active. She made an effort to be outside and participate in as many activities as she could, such as camping, paddleboarding, surfing, snowboarding, hiking, and running races, among other things. Carly’s role as an aunt brought her a lot of happiness, and she enjoyed nothing more than recounting her experiences to her nieces and nephews. She was known as the “fun Auntie” because she always had an activity planned, regardless of the weather.
Volleyball was Carly’s other major passion in life. She played it throughout the entire year on a number of different teams. Carly was a fierce and strong young woman, but she was also shy and quiet, and she did not like to have attention lavished on her. These were characteristics that she displayed particularly well during the last two weeks of her life. Everyone who knew and loved her will miss her in a profound way after her passing.
