Carole Juliette A’Hearn: 1945-2015sramoderator
It is with deep sadness that we announce the very sudden passing of Sensei Carole A’Hearn. We offer our deepest condolences to Marlon, her loving husband. Together, Carole and Marlon earned their Sandan black belts, as well as their Kubudo black belts. Carole was a member of our Shito-ryu Seikokai Association Directorship as Newsletter Editor, and also a member of the Karate BC Executive Committee. Her passion was Kobudo, and she taught at the Nikkei Centre. Carole leaves behind many karate-ka friends who will remember her fondly for her no-nonsense strength, sharp wit, and quiet kindness, as well as for her work with children in karate-do and her dedication to promoting equality for women and girls.
