Ware - Carol A. Peck, 67, passed away surrounded by her family on Thursday, February 6, 2020. She leaves her two loving daughters Tracy (husband Darrin) and Carolyn (husband Dan); her cousin Tony, her Aunt Connie, grandchildren Felicia, Kyle, Jasmine, Allen, Sean, Eric, her great-granddaughter Traelynn, and her best friend Phyllis. She also reunites with her late husband Bruce and brother Buster. She was born on February 27, 1952, daughter of the late Edward Bradway and Rita Bradway (Barbeau)
Carol was a loving, selfless, and hard-working mother, nana, and friend to all. Carol enjoyed staying busy, and spent her life working to support her two daughters; but she always found time for her girls. She was also very well-known for her selflessness; and would give the last dime in her pocket if it meant helping someone in need. From a young age Carol found herself working between many jobs. Until 1979 when she fell in love with her late husband Bruce at Forbes Wrights in Monson where they both worked at the time. Little did she know, this was the man she would spend the next 41 years with.
Carol had changed careers many times for her family’s well-being, but settled down near the end of her career at the Palmer Healthcare Center. There, she was admired for her work ethic and thoughtful nature with the patients. She loved her job and would talk about all of the patients she grew close with. However, she was never too busy to call her family on her lunch break to check in and send her love. Carol finally retired in 2017 to take care of her late husband (Bruce Peck) when he was diagnosed with Dementia, and she cared for him until his passing at home.
Carol had many words of wisdom, but was known most for saying “have what you can have in life, because it’s just too short and you can’t take it with you.” Carol’s family would like her to be remembered as Nana, the name given to her by her grandchildren. They would also like to remember her favorite pastimes such as going for car rides to get away with family, sitting down and scratching lottery tickets with her daughters and grandchildren, and always arriving to a family gathering with the biggest hugs and the largest smile for all to see.
Nana, we all love you and will never forget what you have meant to our family.
Charbonneau Funeral Home, 30 Pleasant Street in Ware is assisting her family with arrangements.
