I worked with Karol for many years as a pharmacist on Level 7 Tower 2. Her quick laugh, genuine warmth, quirky sense of humour, easy going manner, practicality, efficiency, calmness, kindness, wisdom and decades of experience made every day I worked with her a happy one, no matter how stressful our shifts got. She was larger than life, her presence lit up every room she walked into, with joy, peace and comfort. I will forever be able to see her smile and hear her voice because Karol was such a unique and cherished part of my work family. I am so so sorry for her loss, especially for you Bill, of whom she spoke so often. I will miss her so very much. 💔😢
So sad and sorry for your loss of Karol, she was a good one, and will be missed by so many people. To all family and friends near and far, my tears will fall on all the laughter we shared, let yours also. Shine on Karol, Much Love♥️

I worked with Karol for several years on L7T2. In nursing, so much of the quality of your day depends on who you’re working with and whenever I saw Karol was on my wing I’d think “we’re gonna have a good day”. Smart, caring nurse. Always a straight shooter, unflappable and a great sense of humour. I always enjoyed working with her. My very deepest condolences to Bill and the whole family. How bereft you must be!
