CAROL “MICK” HOLWEG

August 18, 1949 – October 10, 2015

Our sorrow is immeasurable as we announce the sudden passing of Carol “Mick” Holweg on October 10, 2015 in Vernon, BC.

Carol was born August 18, 1949 in Vernon and remained to later marry Don Holweg and raise her family of two. She loved many sports and was active in swimming, snow and water skiing, squash and playing hockey. Whatever she participated in, she gave it everything she had.

For many years Carol owned and operated a landscaping and property maintenance business throughout Vernon. She gave endless hours in detail and work ethic to her many clients and projects. She was known as Carol to some and “Mick” to many as friend and helper always. A harder worker could not be found, she offered up her heart and soul.

Carol was predeceased by her son, Jason Holweg in 2000, her mother Margaret Brandt in 2008 and her father Gene Brandt in 1972.

Carol will be remembered with love by her daughter Lee Holweg Kirk, grandson Ryan Kirk and ex-husband Don Holweg.

Carol is further survived by her four brothers: Clayton Brandt (Marj), Cliff Brandt, Keith Brandt (Mary) and Ken Brandt (Wanda) who all live in Vernon; her three sisters: Evelyn Shields of Fort St. John, Gloria (Tim) Smith of Armstrong and Rosemary Falkins of Armstrong as well as nieces and many nephews.

Please join Carol’s family in remembering her at

an informal gathering at the Schubert Centre,

3505 – 30th Avenue, Vernon to be held Saturday, October 17 from 2 – 4 pm.

In lieu of flowers a donation to a charity of choice may be made if you wish.

Cremation arrangements were entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home.
