Carol F.'s Story
Carol F. Keronski, 73, of Salem, N.H., passed away on Saturday, September 2, 2017, in the Holy Family Hospital, Methuen, Mass. She was born in Methuen, a daughter of the late Joseph T. and Helen C. (Trzcinski) Keronski.
Carol graduated from McIntosh Business College in Lawrence, Mass. She went to work as a secretary for the Lawrence General Hospital School of Nursing and also as a receptionist for Wolverine Corporation in Merrimac, Mass. Carol then became a care giver to her aunts and uncles and her parents. She did whatever needed to be done, compassionately, and with a sweet sense of humor. She also enjoyed touring the country, hosting wonderful group gatherings, and was the family Scrabble champion. She was funny, loved her pets, and enjoyed shopping. She was a Communicant of Mary Queen of Peace Church. Carol truly embodied the Bible passage, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth,” as she was a quiet, gentle, loving and nurturing soul.
She is survived by her loving sister, Mary H. Keronski of Salem; her dog, Winter; and by several cousins, second cousins, and friends.
