Carol was a “Braintree girl” graduating from Braintree High School in 1954 with her close-knit lifetime friends “the club” and then went on to cosmetology school. She owned her own hair salon (Carol’s Beauty Nook) in Hanson for 38 years and was loved by all. She was an avid artist, winning the Scituate Arts honorable mention and filled her family’s homes with beautiful paintings. Most importantly, Carol was a beautiful person both inside and out, soft spoken and kind always smiling and finding the good in all. Carol and Al shared a wonderful life together, sharing humor, taking wonderful trips, and spending time with family and friends. Our family saying is “every day’s a party” and Carol’s fabulous cooking brought everyone together. Carol spent most of her free time, and eventually her retirement at the family’s cottage in Plymouth MA in a little Swedish community called Smaland. She loved the beach, watching her grandchildren swim and going out in their pontoon boat. She loved listening to music, laughing, and having fun. As a mother, she was best friends with her daughters providing them with unconditional love and support. The three of them spent an enormous amount of time together, along with their family and friends and sharing many glasses of wine together on the beach chatting and laughing.
