Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
I just heard the sad news today while at the library and was shocked. Carole was one of the kindest, sweetest ladies who always had a nice word for me and a treat for my dog Gypsy. We shared a love of cats and I am going to miss hearing about Freddie's antics. She always spoke highly of her daughters also. What a sad loss.

We met Carole once with her daughter Debbie in Germany, whilst getting operations. Carole was a lovely lady. Very warm and very kind. She supported and loved her family so much. May she rest in peace. Much love to Debbie and her sister.

I am shocked by Carole's departure from this earth. I last saw her at the library in June and she was as energetic and kind as normal. Not only was she the best Librarian the town ever had, but she was always kind, loving, generous, gracious, and the accolades can never end. I surprised her one morning by donating a new American flag for the library flag pole a couple years ago. She was so thrilled and proud. The library is the crown jewel of Tewksbury and Carole's memory will be inextricably intertwined with serving others as God intended. May Carole rest in everlasting Paradise and my heart will always ache.

My daughters and I are so sad to hear of Carole's passing. We met Carole at the library when my daughters were 2 and 4 years old. Over the 10 years we've known Carole she couldn't have been more friendly and supportive. My older daughter's Girl Scout Troop was always welcomed at the library. When my older daughter was home schooled for 6 months, Carole encouraged her to start an art club for home school children. They met every Thursday. We loved talking to Carole about her cats and any other animal stories she would share. These are just small examples of Carole's caring and loving personality. I can't say enough wonderful things about Carole. It's so hard to go to the library and not see her convertible parked out front. We will miss her very much. Our prayers for her family.
