    I hope you find comfort with the scripture John 11:25. Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.

    With deep sympathy I share your sorrow. With deep sympathy I share wonderful memories of your mother.

    Carol was a matriarch in our Taft Avenue neighborhood. She loved being out and about in her garden and she loved to share plants and tell stories about the history of the hood. She will be missed. May her memory be a blessing to her family and friends.

    I will never forget Carol as she offered me her home away from home when I arrived at Brandeis from Spain, and for many years afterwards. She was very kind and caring and I’m very happy I got to see her one last time recently as she was traveling in Europe. My deepest sympathy to her family.

    Carol was a wonderful and caring friend. Gentle with a backbone of steel. Her love for her family was her foundation. Always generous with her time to run an errand for or visit a friend or relative. She loved and enjoyed life. I’ll miss her.

    Carol was a quiet, steady friend with a ready smile for all. She walked through the snow to tell me a classmate, Ann Shannon, had died – that was in 1960 when we were seniors in high school.

    My sympathy goes out to her family at this sad time.

  10. Mary Jane (Dalton) Quinn on October 28, 2020 at 4:55 pm

    So very sorry to hear about Carol’s passing. We were classmates in
    in St. Patrick’s grammar school in Stoneham and then we moved on to Stoneham H.S. She and I were the tallest girls in our grade
    so we were always partners at the end of any procession line the
    nuns involved us in. I remember her as a happy person with a
    lovely smile. My condolences to her family.
