Carolyn Mehigan (1942-2024)

Carolyn (Corrieri) Mehigan of Acton finally joins Stevie, passing away peacefully at home on April 24 surrounded by her loving family. Born in Somerville on March 1st, 1942, to Angela (Langone) and Alfred Corrieri, Carolyn was the older sister of Alfred and his wife Anne of Denver, North Carolina, and the late Paul Corrieri. Carolyn graduated from Emmanuel College before marrying her childhood friend, the late and dearly missed Stephen Mehigan, also of Somerville. Loving mother to Stephen R. and his wife Christine of Littleton, Brian of Acton, Michael of Altamonte Springs Florida, and Cheri and her late husband Jack of Bedford. Carolyn lived for her seven grandchildren and she was the beloved grandmother to Annie, Max, Erin, Nick, Aster, Grace, and Georgia. Carolyn was a deeply religious woman, and the family is comforted in the knowledge that she has found eternal peace with her Lord and her beloved Stevie. A memorial service to honor Carolyn and celebrate her life will be held on Wednesday, May 8th at 10:30am at St. Isidore’s Church in Stow, MA. In lieu of flowers, please take someone you love out to dinner and raise a glass in memory of Cookie and Stevie.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    Thanks, Mom, for everything. We really had the best time the last few years and I’ll be forever grateful for that time together. Thanks also for sticking around as long as you did, we all appreciate it so much. Say “hi” to Dad for me and I’ll see you when I see you.

    Carolyn was a dear friend to us since grade school in Somerville. She was a smart “Cookie” and fun to be with. She loved Stevie and her children and her grandkids were her life’s work. We cannot imagine how much you will miss her. Our sincere condolences to all. Maryann and Paul DeAngelis

    So sad to hear about your loss of your mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. We cannot begin to tell you how much we have missed a little wine around our kitchen table and a lot of good conversation before going to dinner at “MARIO’s” in Lexington with our good friends, Steve and Carolyn. Carolyn surely loved her grandkids so, so much. We remember that she and Steve were always available to watch them, even if it required quite a bit of travel for them. There were always updates about them at our dinner dates. It’s sad when you lose really close friends, but so much sadder to lose family. You are there now but we know that the wonderful memories that you have will be with you always and will be a blessing.
    Not goodbye, just so long. We’ll see you again.
    Lee & Al De Angelis
