Carol M. Feeley 85

Holden - Carol M. (Casey) Feeley passed away peacefully on Thursday October 4, 2018 at home. She was born in Boston, Ma. on February 6,1933. Carol was the daughter of George and Margaret (Daly) Casey. She is survived by her husband Edward M. Feeley Jr. She was the love of Ed's life and they were married for 63 years. Carol was the biggest fan and mother of seven children; Edward M. III, Mark, Maura, John (Deb), Liz (Sam), Trish Champlin (Bob) and Matt (Kelley). She was a grandmother to Timary, Mike, Ryan, Nick, Alex, Lindsay, John, Dan, Laura and Matthew David. Carol is also survived by her great grandchildren Sophia, Vera, Cruz, Jax and Ever. Carol also has many nieces and nephews who are part of her large extended family which include McLoughlins, Toomeys, Kellehers, and Caseys.

Besides her parents, Carol was predeceased by her brother Richard Casey, her sister Patricia "Aunt Pat" Casey and an infant daughter Marie.

In her youth Carol lived in New York and Florida. She spent most of her life in Worcester before moving to Holden in 2004. Carol graduated from St. Peter's High School in the Class of 1952. There, she dated Edward before marrying in 1955. Carol played softball and basketball and was a natural athlete. She and her husband bowled for years in leagues prior to starting their family in 1958.

Carol and Ed resided on the third floor of a three decker in south Worcester when their family was young. They moved in with one child and left with seven! They moved to infamous Whitmarsh Ave. where they continued to raise their children with a focus on love, sports, education and countless get-togethers centering around "the kitchen table". Anyone who sat at Carol's table was provided a caring ear while sharing a laugh and possibly a cocktail. Carol connected to her children's friends (and there were many). She made everyone feel they were part of the family and never forgot the name, nor the history, of anyone who sat at that table.

Carol volunteered at her children's schools. She held various jobs throughout the years including the old Gaslight Company, Heffernan Press, O'Coins, Mc Loughlin's, the Big Y, and Allegro Co., before retiring at the age of 72.

Carol was a Red Sox fan, yet she did keep a quiet liking of her husband's Yankees. Carol and Ed enjoyed golfing through the years until the age of 83 when she retired her clubs.

There were many things that Carol enjoyed in life including her crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, fine food, a good scotch, and solving the world's problems with good company at the kitchen table. She was a true competitor until the very end. She was always classy and respectful.

Carol will be dearly missed by all those whose lives she has touched. She was so grateful for all the people who entered her life in one way or another. She never wavered, never quit. She always loved. "To make a long story short," the smoke has cleared, we had a ball. "Go to bed Carol", we will continue your legacy.

There will be no calling hours. A memorial mass will beheld on Monday, October 8 at 10:00 a.m. at St. George Church, 40 Brattle Street, Worcester. Private burial at a later date.
