Obituary for Joan Constance (Hebert) Carroll

CARROLL, JOAN Constance (Hebert) of Norwood, died Sunday at the Ellis Nursing Home after a long illness. She celebrated her 90th birthday last Thursday. Formerly an office assistant at the University of Toledo and WGTE-FM radio, both in Toledo, Ohio, Joan lived for many years in Rockport, Mass., before moving to Norwood. Born in Boston, she grew up in Brookline, Boston and Haverhill. Joan was a graduate of Haverhill High School, attended Manhattanville College and graduated from Boston University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. In 1950, she married the late Joseph Robert Carroll, of Haverhill, who was a musician, composer of liturgical music for the Roman Catholic Church and a professor at the University of Toledo. Their marriage ended in divorce. Although she lived in Toledo from the early 1950s until 1998, Joan spent part or all of most summers in Massachusetts in Salisbury Beach, Marblehead, Gloucester or Rockport. She moved to Rockport in 1998. For many years she was a member of the Alpha Phi sorority. She leaves four children and three daughters-in-law, James R. Carroll and his wife, Carol Vernon, of Alexandria, Va.; Nancy E. Carroll of Rockport, Mass.; Peter G. Carroll and his wife, Maureen, of Canton, Mass.; and Sean B. Carroll and his wife, Jamie, of Chevy Chase, Md. She is also survived by eight grandchildren: Fiona Carroll of Chicago; Brenna Carroll of Boston; Caitlin Carroll of Pawtucket, R.I.; Colleen Trojbom of Lake City, Fla.; Brianne Carroll of Canton, Mass.; Bridget Carroll of Burlington, Vt.; and Patrick Carroll and Will Van Boldrik, both of Los Angeles, Calif. She also leaves nieces Laurie Jacobs of Ipswich, Mass., Jacqui H. Becker of Bellevue, Wash., and Carol Dawson of Myakka City, Fla., and nephews Brian K. Carroll of Plaistow, N.H., Patrick C. Carroll of Cape Neddick, Me., and Jeffrey A. Carroll of Hampstead, N.H. She also is survived by a sister-in-law, Patricia Carroll, of Plaistow, N.H. Her brother, Richard A. Hebert, predeceased her. Visitation will be held Friday Oct. 20, 2017 from 10 a.m. until noon at Kraw-Kornack Funeral Home, 1248 Washington St., Norwood. Burial will follow in St. Mary’s-Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Lawrence, Mass.
