Marlborough – Carole Jean Avey, 83, a life-long resident of Marlborough, passed away peacefully on October 8, 2021.
She was pre-deceased by her siblings Donald Avey Sr., Rose Eloise Flanagan, Robert Avey, Clifford Avey and Albert Avey. She is survived by her sister-in-law Jackie (Avey) Bryn of New Mexico and her life-long best friend Claire Lucier of Marlborough, cousins and numerous nieces and nephews.
Carole was born on January 1, 1938, daughter of the late Clifford J. Avey and Florida M (Champagne) Avey. She was an active member of her former parish, St. Mary’s Church and attended St. Anne’s Academy, for all grades of school. She graduated from St. Anne’s Academy in June 1956. She worked for a short time, at the Marlborough Theater at the concession stand. After High School, she worked at Jordan Marsh at Shoppers World, Framingham, then went to work at the Peoples National Bank on Main Street, Marlborough as a teller and then in the loan department before she retired. She also worked for many years for the City of Marlborough Elections as a poll worker.
Carole’s first love was her family. She was proud to be an aunt, lovingly known as A.C., to a total of 54 nieces and nephews, spanning 4 generations. She loved traveling with family and friends, playing cards at the kitchen table, watching game shows and she adored old musicals. She was a wonderful cook and loved watching the cooking channel. She was also a die-hard Red Sox fan, rarely missing the opportunity to watch a game.
Carole’s family would like to thank the dedicated staff, of the second floor, at Beaumont Skilled Nursing Center in Northborough for their tireless, kind and compassionate care that was extended to Carole, over these many months.
