Carolyn was raised in Waltham, graduated in 1953 from Waltham High School, was a Girl Scout, Cheerleader, Rainbow Girl and attended Lasell Junior College.

She volunteered at South Shore Hospital for over 20 years including many years working with Chaplain Services. Her favorite vacation spot was Wolfeboro NH where she and her husband enjoyed beautiful Lake Wentworth.

Carolyn is survived by three daughters and their husbands: Sandra and Robert Mazaika of Hopkinton, MA, Susan and David Reynolds of Westboro, MA and Sharon and Gregory Wall of Rockland, MA. She adored her grandchildren: Bryan Mazaika and his fiance Brooke Suelter, Carleen Mazaika, Carter and Austin Reynolds and Bradley Wall. She is also survived by her Aunt Shirley, many nieces, nephews and cousins.
