Carol Louise Johnston, 69, passed peacefully due to complications from Multiple Sclerosis on December 29, 2018 at the Leonard Florence Center for Living in Chelsea, Massachusetts, in the company of her family and close friends.

Carol graduated from Springfield High School in Oreland, Pennsylvania and lived and worked for many years in the suburban Philadelphia area before moving to Massachusetts in 2007. Upon moving to Massachusetts, Carol became a passionate Boston Red Sox fan and also enjoyed going to movies and shows, shopping and soaking up the sun on the patio with her friends at the Leonard Florence Center. Most of all, Carol loved spending time with her family and friends, including furry, four-legged ones. Carol loved all dogs, but especially her beloved black Lab, Georgia.
