Obituary of Carol Ellis

Carol A Ellis 58, passed away on Thursday November 2, 2017 after a long courageous battle with cancer. She leaves her beloved husband James A. Ellis of 34 years. They began their loving life together when Carol was 14 years old. Carol was the beloved daughter of the late Walter Christopher and Shirley A. Lynch of Putnam CT.
She is also survived by her sister Barbara and husband Pete Emerson of Woodstock CT. Her brothers Walter Steven Lynch and wife Lisa Lynch of Thompson CT; Randall Lynch and girlfriend Kelly Murphy of Eastford CT; Thomas and wife Ginger Lynch of Woodstock Valley CT.  Her nieces and nephews Stacey A. Lynch; Walter Kyle Lynch; Joseph R Lynch & wife Wendy; Krysta M. Lynch ( God daughter) ; Cameron C Lynch; Dillon Murphy; Garrett T Lynch and Teagan C Lynch.  One great niece Haleigh Lynch.
Carol loved to spend time with her family but also loved to meet strangers and hear their lives story. She was a care giver and always put others needs before her own. One of her last acts of kindness was to plan her mother’s 80th birthday party. She was a master renovator and took pride in turning something that was abandon and run down into something beautiful. Nothing delighted her more than finding the best material for the best price.
She loved to travel with her husband and was a specialist at planning cruises. They went on multiple cruises over the years and loved it so much she wanted to share the experience with her family. This past year she planned and took her family on eastern Caribbean cruise to one of her favorite spots Half Moon Cay, Bahamas.
Carol was an avid baker. Each holiday she would make everyone’s favorite cookies and ensure that each family received a special package all for themselves.  No one was willing to share!
In lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations be made to the Harrington Cancer Center in Southbridge MA.  In the spirit of Carol’s kindness and giving spirit, the family ask everyone to reach out and perform an act of kindness. Share a memory at www.smithandwalkerfh.com
