MURRAY, Carol Elizabeth Anne Dec. 14, 1957 - Jun. 9, 2020 Carol Murray passed away on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at the age of 62 years. She will be dearly missed by her husband Gary Murray, of Calgary; her mother Elizabeth Cossar; her sister Jane Cossarfisc­her (Tim Fischer); brothers John Cossar and Rob Cossar; all of London, ON; a niece, nephews and many dear friends. Carol was predecease­d by her father James Cossar. Carol was born and raised in London, Ontario. After graduating from University, she worked as a teacher in BC. She married her sweetheart from home and they began their life together in Calgary in 1983, where they have resided since. Carol loved spending her time with family and friends, golfing with the girls, relaxing at the family cottage, playing with her dog Penny and traveling with Gary were all important to her. She filled her spare time with volunteeri­ng with several organizati­ons. Carol loved the world of education and excelled in her role as a teacher, principal and administra­tor with the Calgary Board of Education. Carol's priority was Gary, and her passing leaves a heavy heart as well as a life time of wonderful memories. A celebratio­n of life will be held when restrictio­ns are lifted and the timing is right. At Carol's request, she will be cremated. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family at www.piersons.ca. Paul was born on January 24, 1928 in Edmonton, Alberta. He grew up in Edmonton and Waterways as part of a musical family and, as a teenager, was an aspiring jazz trumpeter. Paul set aside his profession­al musical ambitions in favour of a lifelong passion for science and education and, after graduating from Victoria High School at the age of 16, embarked on what was to be a long and winding journey through post-secondary education. Along that path, he amassed a collection of degrees, including a B.SC. in Chemistry (1948) and a B.ED. (1964) from the University of Alberta (1964), an M.SC. in Chemistry from the University of Portland (1971) and an M.SC. in Chemistry from the University of East Anglia (1977). Paul then returned to the University of Calgary at the age of 65 and, over the next fifteen years, completed numerous courses in geology, geophysics, languages and political science. Paul put his education to good use in the twin careers he pursued sometimes at the same time - throughout his life. He was a dedicated high school science teacher who worked tirelessly to share his love of science with his students and to spark in them the same passion for learning he enjoyed. For many years, he was frequently approached by appreciati­ve former students, especially those from Viscount Bennett High School, with a friendly "Mr. Viney!" To the surprise of many, he remembered each of them and nothing made him happier than to hear about his students’ successes. As a geophysici­st, Paul was able to put his background in the sciences to practical use. As a fresh university graduate, he enjoyed fieldwork and made many lifelong friends while with Texaco. Later in life, working as an exploratio­n geophysici­st allowed him to explore the scientific puzzles and challenges underlying the search for oil and gas resources, and to give rein to his entreprene­urial spirit. Paul re-discovered his athletic side after moving to Calgary in the late 1960s. He became an avid runner and the dedicated coach of many track teams, as well as a coach and judge for the Alberta Gymnastics Federation. He excelled at tennis and golf, as well as cross-country and downhill skiing, and had a passion bordering on the obsessive for ballroom dancing. Paul was also a keen outdoorsma­n who enjoyed camping and hiking - over the years, he backpacked hundreds of miles through the mountains of Alberta, BC and Alaska. In the course of his adventures, Paul made many dear friends, with whom he loved to share good food, good wine and good conversati­on, particular­ly if the topic was politics or economics. He was a fierce and ready champion in both word and deed for social and economic justice, who never lost faith in the idea that, given the chance, people are fundamenta­lly decent and kind and can be counted on to work together for the good of all. The family anticipate­s that a celebratio­n of Paul’s life will be held in late 2020 or early 2021. To express condolence­s, please visit: www.mountainvi­ewmemorial.ca.
