It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Almut Carroll in her 99th year. Predeceased by husbands Paul Herget (1941) and Joseph Carroll (1967). Almut loved her Lambeth Community and was active in the Horticultural Society, Crafters Club and the Lambeth United Church. Her knitting skills were the envy of her friends and family, and she was never seen with idle hands. An avid gardener, she maintained her home well into her 80’s, her bicycle her only vehicle. Almut raised her family alone with strength, courage and integrity always putting others before herself. She will be greatly missed by son Paul (Rosemarie), daughters Anne (John) and Liz (Dave). Her loving grandchildren Cindy, Ian (Carlough), Brian (Joleen), Christine (Joost), Chris (Sarah) and Joe (Ana) as well as 9 great grandchildren.
