Carol was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to many. She was an exceptional homemaker, always taking care of the house and family. She worked for the Wachusett Regional School District Before School Program for several years until her grandchildren were born. She then watched some of the grandchildren who loved to go to “Camp Grandma’s” until they went to school and then would spend school vacations and days off with her. Her family is forever grateful for all she did for them. Carol enjoyed her candlepin bowling leagues, minigolf and especially Bingo with her friends. She also loved to travel on her many vacations to California, Las Vegas, Hawaii, Florida, Cape Cod and especially Loon Mountain. She and her husband Andy were pillars in the community who always worked to keep a safe neighborhood which involved countless trips to City Hall. She was a member of the Auburn Elks and helped and enjoyed many functions over the years at the Auburn Knights of Columbus. She loved to spend time with her family and friends and will be forever missed by all.
The family would like to thank the Emergency Department and 2 Lakeside ICU for their critical care and compassion toward Carol.
