Dates of existence
Carol Anne Lindquist was born in Tecumseh, Ontario, where as a young girl she would pretend to be a stewardess. It was during a trip when she was roughly 10 years old to Detroit’s Willow Run Airport that her dream was firmly cemented - she spent 4 hours watching the planes taking off, landing and observing the stewardesses. After this trip, she regularly visited the Windsor airport, taking photos of the Trans-Canada Airlines (TCA) flight attendants and collecting their autographs. She also compiled a scrap book of news items about TCA. The flight attendants got to know her and one, Mary Vasco, sent her name to TCA public relations in Toronto. In 1957, public relations flew Ms. Linquist, then 13, and her mother to Toronto for the day. Her mother made her a replica of the TCA flight attendant uniform, which she wore during her trip. After graduating high school in 1961, she entered nursing school. During nursing school, Ms. Lindquist flew TCA during her practicum and helped the flight attendants with their duties, including taking care of a sick passenger. She graduated nursing school in 1964 and worked for a year in Tecumseh. On June 25, 1965 she achieved her goal and became a flight attendant for TCA. She was a flight attendant from 1965-1966 when she left her job to get married. Lindquist was an active member of the Canada Maple Wings Association after leaving TCA, allowing her to maintain friendships and involvement with Air Canada. She currently lives in Davidson, Québec.
