Carolyn graduated from Millbury Memorial High School, class of 1962. Over the years she worked at several jobs ranging from manufacturing to retail sales.

She was just as happy going camping in the White Mountains or walking the beach at Cape Cod. She always looked forward to the holidays decorating their home and spending time with her family. She was always full of energy, a bit stubborn and determined to make the most out of life.
