In Loving Memory of Carolee Elizabeth Richardson


Carolee Richardson, a cherished member of the community, passed away peacefully on April 13, 2024, at the age of 87 in South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater.  She leaves behind a legacy of kindness, service, and love that will forever be remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing her.


Born on December 25, 1936, Carolee was a beloved daughter of Greta and John Woodworth, and grew up in Bridgewater, surrounded by the warmth and camaraderie of her seven siblings.  Sadly, Carolee was predeceased by her parents; siblings, Bruce (Lorna), John, and Ollie.  Her passing will be mourned by her siblings who survive her, Bobby (Glenda), Keith (Karen), Marion (Glenwood), and Shirley (Calvin).  From an early age, she demonstrated a deep commitment to helping others, a trait that would define her life's work.


Carolee's dedication to community service was exemplified through her active involvement in the Lions Club, where she served tirelessly to support various charitable initiatives and make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. She had a passion for community events as shown with her involvement in organizing bingo nights, where she brought joy and laughter to countless individuals throughout the years.


In addition to her selfless service, Carolee was a devoted mother to her two children, Michael Richardson (Nancy) and Dave Richardson (Colleen), and a loving grandmother to her four grandchildren, Shauna (Matt), Nikolas (Janetta), Ashley (Garren) and Jonathan (Caitlin). Family was at the center of her life, and she cherished every moment spent with her loved ones, enjoying Christmas breakfasts with her family, and watching her grandsons play hockey.


Carolee will be fondly remembered for her vibrant spirit, unwavering generosity, and genuine kindness towards others. Her presence in the community brought light and inspiration to all who knew her, and her legacy of compassion will continue to inspire future generations to make a difference in the world.


Though Carolee may no longer walk among us, her memory will live on in the countless lives she touched and the hearts she uplifted. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all who had the privilege of knowing her.


In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to the Bridgewater and Area Lions Club in honor of Carolee's lifelong commitment to serving others.


A graveside service will be held 11 a.m., Monday, April 22, 2024 in Brookside Cemetery, Bridgewater under the direction of Sweeny’s Funeral Home, 35 York Street, Bridgewater, where friends and family will gather to honor her memory and share stories of her remarkable life. May she rest in eternal peace, knowing that her legacy of love will continue to shine brightly in the hearts of those she leaves behind.
