Western mourns passing of Nursing student


The Western community is mourning the death of Cara Ellen Soules Farquharson, 19, a Nursing student from Toronto, who died Thursday, Nov. 9, in London.

A memorial service and reception will be held from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, at the Mount Pleasant Visitation Centre, 375 Mount Pleasant Road-East Gate Entrance, Toronto.

Western will lower the flag on University College in Cara’s honour on Saturday.

Cara’s family includes her parents, John Farquharson and Sherry Soules; brother, Payton Farquharson; grandparents, John and Amelia Farquharson and Frank and Janet Russell; along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Camp Oconto Campership Fund to help send a girl to camp – a place and experience Cara loved year after year.
