Carmen Eloise Cantrell, born April 16, 1920 in Regina, Saskatchewan, passed away as she lived with grace and dignity on July 11, 2014 at 94 years young. Having spent most of her life in Washington State, Carmen enjoyed 63 wonderful years of marriage to her late husband Charlie Smith Cantrell. Carmen was an illustrious chef and pie-maker, who loved generously, adored elegant fashion, and was unafraid to inspire laughter with her extraordinary humor and sharp wit. She was a master gardener with exceptional nail beds and 20/20 vision, who dreamed of being a moll while moonlighting as a high-class escort. Preceded in death by her mother Ruby Bell Lipsett (Horspool) and her father Lewis Sturgeon. She is survived by her three children: La Lonnie Heapy of Bishop, CA, Dr. Bridget Cantrell of Bellingham, WA, Charlie Cantrell of Bellingham, WA, three grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.
