Carrie Lester (Hall) was born May 24, 1960 in Toronto, Ontario and passed away peacefully on Saturday February 24 in Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. She was the third of four children born to Don and Joan Hall. She was a strong, creative, compassionate, energetic, and deeply caring role model and mother. She never backed down from a challenge and she enjoyed life to the fullest. Even though she was battling cancer she did not let it slow her down. Carrie worked tirelessly on human rights issues, learning the languages of her native heritage, and rising to international acclaim for her contributions and environmental activism. She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Joe Lester, daughter Jennifer Manzer (Reginald), son William Lester (Ebru), sisters Diane Bastedo (Cameron), Rosemary Lister (Robert), brother Michael Hall (Judy), and stepmother Edythe Hall. A celebration of life ceremony and potluck will be held at the Native Canadian Center of Toronto at 16 Spadina Rd, Toronto Ontario, from 1pm – 5pm on Friday March 2, 2018.
