Carole Drosehn Obituary
DALTON ? After a battle with cancer, Carole Drosehn died on September 18, 2016 at her home in Dalton, MA at the age of 74. Carole was born on October 16, 1941 in Pittsfield, MA to Francis Young and Pearl Young, who predeceased her. She grew up in a loving family in Becket, MA. Carole married Bruce Drosehn on October 29, 1966. For over 20 years she was a care and respite provider for Specialized Home Care. Carole was so warm and full of love by sending out her caring and positive vibes to everyone around her. She didn't care about vanity but spread her love throughout her world. When diagnosed with cancer she remained dedicated in her will to fight her illness. She remained a brave, silent warrior, even throughout her final months. A life made beautiful by kindly deeds, a helping hand for others' needs. To a beautiful life, comes a happy end - she died as she lived, everyone's friend. Besides her husband of 50 years, she is survived by her daughter, Tracy; her sons, Johnny, Kevin, Keith and David; and her grandchildren, Ricarda, Tommy, Sean, Jenna and Stephen as well as her brothers, Hap and his wife, Faye and David and his wife, Pat; she is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
