1941 - 2014 | Obituary Condolences Gallery
Gould, Carol Ann Passed away on April 26, 2014, after a courageous battle with MDS and Leukemia. Born in Amarillo, Texas on June 15, 1941, she is survived by her loving partner Boris Kanieff of Waltham, MA, mother of Lloyd (Christy Transier) Gould of Key West, FL, Melanie (Adrian Pembroke) Gould of Kimberley, BC Canada, brother-in-law Robert Gould of Provincetown, MA, proud grandmother of Conor Gould (5) and Asher Pembroke (2), nephews Adam (Rachel) Gutow-Ellis and Matt (Pam) Ellis of Houston, TX, cousin Andrea (Loren) Weinstein of Dallas, TX. Preceded in death by her mother, Miriam Schlesinger, father, Irving Ellis, and brother, Larry Ellis. Survivors also include Nick Kanieff and Natasha Kanieff of Boston MA and Mark Kanieff of Los Angeles, CA as well as many cousins and devoted friends. "From the moment I met her, I fell in love with her spirit." Not just one person felt that spirit but all who were fortunate to know her. Carol Ann Gould was a woman of uncommon good cheer whose love of life influenced everyone and everything she did. Thousands of cards just to say, "I care" with her familiar happy face with glasses signature made the day brighter. Her glorious smile and infectious laugh put cares and tears aside, and we laughed with her. A selfless person who forever placed the needs of others first, she was the inspiration to family, friends and mere acquaintances to do the same. When she retired after 14 years of dedicated service as administrative assistant to Dr. Nancy Harris at Mass General Hospital she was the recipient of the coveted "chair". The diagnosis of MDS gave her opportunity to share with others how to confront the disease by LIVING. Sounds of the ocean and sand between her toes, flowers of spring, winter's snow all fed her love for nature and its beauty. And that beauty transcended to the incomparable love story of Carol Ann and her Bo. She leaves these words, "I will always be with you my dearest Bo." And from Bo, "You were the world to me, phenomenal friend, great partner. You are a person in the world, but to me you are my world and the love of my life." The family extends special thanks for the loving care of so many: Dr. Nancy Harris, Dr. Yi-Bin Chen, Dr. Amir Fahti, Dr. Stephan McAfee, Dr. Thomas Spitzer and the staff of the Cox 1 Clinic and the Lunder 10 nursing and care staff of Massachusetts General Hospital. The funeral will take place graveside on Monday, April 28, 2014 at 12:45 pm at Sharon Memorial Park, Rabbi David Grossman officiating. The family will be sitting shiva Monday and Tuesday from 6-8 pm at the home of Judith Romaine located at 94-A Mechanic Street Foxboro. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Massachusetts General Hospital Caring for A Cure - Lunder 10 Nursing Fund (55 Fruit Street Boston, MA 02114), Make a Wish Foundation, The or the .
