Carol A. Smith
Loving mother, grandmother, sister and aunt
Carol A. (McDermott) Smith, 77, of Hollis, NH, died Wednesday, March 8th at her home. She was the beloved wife of the late Kevin P. Smith, Sr. who died April 6, 1999.
Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, December 17, 1939, a daughter of the late Henry and the late Emily (McNamara) McDermott, she attended Lowell schools and was a graduate of Lowell High School with the Class of 1957 where she also served as the Colonel of The Girl Officers.
Before retiring, Carol was employed as a Hearing Specialist for the Lowell public schools. Previously, she was a Nurse’s Aide in the maternity ward at the former St. John’s Hospital in Lowell, a job she truly loved.
Among her many interests, she enjoyed knitting, attending the Boston Pops concerts during Christmas and had a passion for clothes shopping whether it be live or catalogue. She was also an avid New England Patriots fan. Above all else though, being all about family, she cherished the quality time she was able to spend with her children and grandchildren.
