Carolyn M. (Giroux) McCrohon, 73, passed away Sunday, November 20, surrounded by her family at her daughter’s home with whom she lived.
She was the mother of three daughters, Lynn LaRue and her husband Robert of North Oxford, Robin Belanger with Robert Hinderliter of Frederick, Maryland, and Kimberly Williams with Roland Fitts of Webster; her loving grandchildren, Nicole Belanger and her husband David Maciewski of Worcester, Kevin Belanger of Washington, D.C., Michael Phelan and his wife Rachael and Daniel Phelan and his wife Kaitlin all of Oxford, Alissa Lataille, Nicholas Williams, Zachary Williams and her great grandson, Nathan Tabor all of Webster and her step grandson Robert LaRue II of North Oxford, her sister, Margaret (Peggy) Giroux of Worcester.

Carol was born November 26, 1942 in Worcester, a daughter of the late Henry and Mary (Healy) Giroux.
Carol graduated from Commerce High and was a waitress for many years at the White House Restaurant in Worcester. When her children were teenagers, she returned to school and earned her degree from Quinsigamond Community College in 1980. She was a long time property manager at Park Plaza in Worcester in addition to the multiple companies where she did bookkeeping work.
The Ornery Matriarch, as she was so lovingly known, always spent time with her grandchildren and great grandson creating life long memories. She was always sharing her love of cooking in the kitchen and would bring out the nothing box for creative crafting moments.
Carol enjoyed her trips to Maine with “the girls” and Christmas Eve trips with her cousins. They were all family and fun to be with. She loved to take time to read a good book and would do anything for anyone. She will be greatly missed.
Burial will be private but, Carol wanted a celebration of her life which will be held Friday evening, November 25, from 6-8pm at Point Breeze Restaurant, 114 Point Breeze Road, Webster, MA.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Central Mass Hospice VNA of Southern Worcester County, 191 Pakachoag St, Auburn, MA 01501 or the American Heart Association, 20 Speen St., Framingham, MA 01701.
