Carole Remick Obituary
Mrs. Carole C. (Bocasky) Remick, age 78, of Marblehead, died peacefully the morning of Tuesday Oct. 18 in the Kaplan Family Hospice House after a brief illness. She was the wife of the late E. Bruce Remick. Born in Peabody, Carole was the daughter of the late Dominic M. and Stella (Sobolewski) Bocasky. She attended Peabody schools and was a graduate of St. John's High School in Peabody. She received her A.B from Regis College and later obtained her Master's Degree from Boston College. She also obtained 30 credits of post-graduate work at Harvard University. She had been a resident of Marblehead since 1970. After graduating from Regis College, she joined the Regis Lay Apostolate as a volunteer teacher and taught at the Cristo Rey School in Sante Fe, New Mexico. Carole taught high school English in Lake George, NY and at Peabody High School. She went on to be an English Professor at UMass Boston. During her time at UMass Boston, she ran the schools co-op education program. She also secured grant funding from the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund and launched the High School Journalism Collaborative, which introduced many teenagers of color to the journalism careers they would later pursue. Carole retired in 1997 but continued to run the Collaborative. Next year will be the 25th anniversary of her program. Carole was President of the Regis College Alumni Association and had a special fondness for the college and its mission. She was also a member of the Polish Business & Professional Women's Club and the Faculty Club at Boston State College. Carole had a love of people and life that was infectious. She had a sparkle of excitement whenever she talked about a new book, a motivated student, a museum exhibit or a Boston sports team. She has traveled to many places with friends experiencing life and learning about different cultures. She kept in touch with her students over the years and had a special bond with many, spending holidays with them and even traveled to India for a special students wedding. In the winter she enjoyed Scottsdale, AZ, and the summer she spent time in Marblehead and Rockland, ME. She leaves a brother-in-law, Wilson Remick and his wife Virginia. She also leaves her nieces and nephews, David Remick and his wife Robin, and Judy and Mike Remick-Henry of Upstate, NY. She was the sister-in-law of the late Robert Remick. Carole leaves countless life long friends who thought of her as family. She was a god mother to several children and was known as a second mother to many others. She will be sorely missed but her sparkle will live on in all of us. She was terrific. A Memorial Mass for Carol will be celebrated at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church, 85 Atlantic Ave. MARBLEHEAD on Saturday, November 5, at 11AM. Relatives and friends kindly invited. Burial will follow in Waterside Cemetery, Marblehead. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Regis College Development Office, 235 Wellesley St., Weston, MA, 02493-1571, as well as the Kaplan Family Hospice House, 78 Liberty St., Danvers, MA 01923.
