Carol A. Talbot

Carol Anne Talbot (St. Pierre) died on her 76th birthday, Thursday October 12th, after a battle with dementia. She was born on October 12th 1947 at JB Thomas Hospital in Peaobdy, and was a lifelong resident of Marblehead.Carol and her husband of 42 years, Arthur “Buddy” J. Talbot Jr. were married in 1981 and had two children, Michael and Kathryn. Carol was proud to have raised her two children in the same place in which she grew up, often sharing stories of her time growing up with her sisters and friends in town

Carol is survived by her husband Arthur, as well as her daughter Kathryn (Kate) Talbot, her wife Ashley Stebbins and their children Luke (5) and Eliza (2), of Essex Vermont.She is also survived by her sister Joyce Preble and her husband Peter of Marblehead, six nieces and nephews and their children. Carol is predeceased by her son Michael Talbot, her sister Joan Howlett and her husband Jeffrey, and her sister Donna Baybutt, who is survived by her husband Scott, of Peabody.

Carol worked as a hairdresser for over 5o years, and especially enjoyed working with elderly clients both at residential living facilities, and in their own homes. She had many very long-term clients, some for as long as 40 years. As her clients aged, she would go to their homes to do their hair if they were unable to travel. This brought her to many nursing homes, where she added more clients, and eventually became the resident hairdresser at Oceanview Assisted Living in Beverly. Outside of work, Carol enjoyed gardening, reading, and most of all, being a Nana to her two grandchildren.

Carol had an especially strong bond with her son Michael, and after he passed in 2021, her health quickly started to decline. She asked for him repeatedly in her final days, and her family feels a great sense of peace knowing they are reunited in heaven.
