Carol Lee Boscow, 76, of Willow Street, PA, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at the Willow Valley Retirement Community.
Carol was born in New Castle, PA, on April 19, 1938. Her early childhood years were spent in Erie, PA, and Dallas, TX. Her family then settled in Walla Walla, Washington, where she graduated from Walla Walla High School.
Carol was married to Ronald Boscow, her high school sweetheart, on February 8, 1955. They were married 59 years.
Carol was a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. She was a staunch supporter of her children’s and grandchildren’s pursuits and was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, the Boston Bruins and the New England Patriots. She enjoyed sewing and knitting, and utilized her skill to create a wide assortment of beautiful clothes, toys and other hand-made items. She enjoyed worldwide travel and was able to embrace her husband’s love of classical music.
Throughout her adult life, Carol was forced to contend with a variety of serious health challenges. Her internal strength, discipline and endurance along with the steadfast care provided by her loving husband Ron and countless others allowed her to meet these challenges and lead a wonderful and very full life. Her “secret” was her love for people and her interest in her family, friends and others whom she had the opportunity to meet.
