January 25, 1983 - February 9, 2020
Our hearts are heavy and broken with profound sadness as we announce the passing of Haylee Damara Carlson (nee) Brothers. Although she had such an inner strength and conviction to carry on battling her cancer for the last four years, her fight ended on February 9, 2020.
Haylee was a compassionate, courageous and a selfless warrior. Haylee always thought of others before herself even at the last stages of her life. She always found the good in others and continuously consoled those around her.
The memory of Haylee will live on through Mike, her husband of 8 years and their beautiful daughter Shanli. Her parents, Dave and Trina Brothers, sisters Kristin (nephew Jude) and Shelby (Isaiah). Her father in law, Brad Carlson and mother in law Kerin Carlson as well Mike’s brother Chris.
She will be missed by many friends, cousins, aunts and uncles as well as her “other family” at the legislative assembly.
For her 37th birthday, though she was fighting for her own life, she requested others make donations to the NWT BREAST HEALTH/BREAST CANCER ACTION GROUP.
Donations can be contributed to Haylee’s Facebook site until February 15th, thereafter directly to the NWT BREAST HEALTH/BREAST CANCER ACTION GROUP. Haylee wanted to ensure the donations remained in the NWT.
We want to give our heartfelt thanks to the Stanton Territorial Hospital nurses on the medicine unit, who tirelessly went above and beyond their duties to ensure all of our Haylee’s needs.
There will be a Celebration in memory of Haylee at the Great Hall of the Legislative Assembly on Saturday February 15th, 2020 at 3:00 pm.
