Carol Ann Millar Bonazzoli passed away peacefully on February 9, 2023 following a long struggle with Alzheimer’s.
Carol was born on November 30, 1943 in Framingham, MA where she grew up and also raised her family. Carol’s daughters fondly remember their mom’s love of gardening, cross stitch, cooking, entertaining and getting together with friends. They enjoyed many vacations and summers in their backyard pools as a family with their mom and dad. From Cape Cod and the Connecticut shore, to the coast of Maine and the Lakes of New Hampshire, Carol shared fun times with good friends. After the sudden passing of her first husband John in 1988, Carol was introduced to her second husband, Fred. They shared a mutual love of traveling and experienced many wonderful trips together all over the world. When Carol and Fred were not traveling, she loved hosting family holidays and gatherings, especially having her many grandchildren over to swim at their pool in Hopkinton. Carol spent her winters in Captiva, Florida with Fred, where she loved to take walks and collect shells. She was very proud of her hole-in-one at the South Seas golf course!
Carol was predeceased by her first husband John B. Millar. She is survived by her husband Alfred F. Bonazzoli. Carol also leaves behind her daughter Kim Winer and her husband William, her daughter Karen Hutchinson and her husband Alan, her daughter Kristin Brigham, and her daughter Kathleen Reynolds and her husband Paul. In addition to her daughters and her step children, Carol leaves behind 15 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
There will be a small private graveside service for family members only. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent to Alzheimer's Association (act.alz.org).
