Beaudin, Carol  
Carol "Cookie" Joyce Beaudin 1947 - 2015 ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. Carol "Cookie" Joyce Beaudin, age 68, passed away peacefully on May 21, at her home in Rocky Mount, N.C. with her loving husband by her side following her 12 month courageous battle with cancer. Carol was born March 30, 1947, in Marietta, Ga., the daughter of Alice M. (Bedard) Mazinski and Richard F. Mazinski. At an early age, Carol moved with her family to North Adams, where she attended local schools. She was a 1966 graduate of Drury High School, where she was co-captain of the varsity cheerleaders and was active in all school activities. Carol attended Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield, and completed her education at Charles H. McCann Vocational Technical School earning her Licensed Practical Nursing degree. In 1968, Carol married her sweetheart and best friend, Michael W. Beaudin, also of North Adams. During their 46 years of marriage they raised a family consisting of three loving children and eight wonderful grandchildren. While living mostly in Berkshire County, Carol was committed to her nursing career at North Adams Regional Hospital, also having worked in hospitals in Boston, and Fairbanks, Alaska, and raising her young family. In 1990, Carol and Mike relocated to Plattsburgh, N.Y. where Carol attended and earned her degree from Our Lady of Victory Secretarial School, as well as worked in the medical office of Dr. David Anderson. Carol devoted herself to the care of her mother enjoying Saturday morning yard sales and breakfast at the diner. She also nurtured her love for gardening as a volunteer with the Kent-Delord House Museum Garden Club. Carol and Mike headed south for retirement in 2008. Rocky Mount, N.C. provided a climate for them to enjoy their passions for gardening and golf. She enjoyed volunteering with the Rocky Mount Garden Club where she introduced the annual "Garden of Your Dreams" fundraiser. Having an interest in becoming a Master Gardener, Carol immersed herself into the Nash County Master Gardener Volunteer Association where she was a steward in the ongoing Pollinator Garden Project. Carol cultivated beautiful gardens at home and many friendships within the gardening community. Gardening, spending time with family and friends, and spending time at the beach collecting thousands of seashells brought Carol the most joy and tranquility. Carol loved to dance and music warmed her soul. Carol is survived by her beloved husband, Michael W. Beaudin, of Rocky Mount, N.C.; her son, Scott Beaudin and his wife, Michelle, of Richmond, Va., their children, Alex and Emily; her daughter, Cindy (Beaudin) Campopiano and her husband, Kevin, of Richmond, Va., their children, Sophie and Owen; and daughter, Jill (Beaudin) Poveda and her husband, Michael, of Nyack, N.Y., and their children, Tony, Billy, Christina, and Olivia; and a brother, Richard E. Mazinski and his wife, Kris, of Westfield, Mass. She also leaves behind numerous loving relatives and friends. The family will always remember her love for her three cats, Elsie, Lucy, and Lizzie. Carol always loved this anonymous quote, "Every moment of every day; cherish life, laughter, people, sunrises and sunsets, little caterpillars, funny children; please guys - don't wait until you or your loved ones get a life threatening illness to fully embrace how beautiful life is, and that which stresses you is, in all likelihood, the 'small' stuff." Carol had expressed her deep appreciation to Dr. John Huffman and his staff as well as her overall health care support team, and her relatives and friends who have provided endless support, prayers and compassion throughout her fight. Carol and Michael would also like to offer a special thank you to Friends of Hospice of Nash General for their comfort, love and support as they helped guide Carol through her final journey. FUNERAL NOTICE: A Liturgy of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday May 26, at 9 a.m. at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church. Burial will follow in Southview cemetery. Calling hours at FLYNN & DAGNOLI-MONTAGNA HOME FOR FUNERALS WEST CHAPELS, 521 West main St. North Adams, Mass. are Monday from 4 - 7 p.m. Donations in Carol's memory can be made to Friends of Hospice of Nash General, The American Cancer Society or the SPCA (no kill shelter), through the funeral home.
