Carol P. (Reynolds) Dulong, 78, of East Freetown died unexpectedly but peacefully on February 17, 2021.
Born in Dartmouth, she was the daughter of the late Roland N. and Phebe C. (Westgate) Reynolds and sister of the late Roland R. Reynolds.
She lived in East Freetown most of her life with and is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, Alan R. Dulong. She is also survived by her daughters Brenda Turner of Dartmouth and Susan Dulong Langley of Milford, MA; grandchildren Holly Langley, Kristin York, Adam York, and Alexis Turner; and several nieces and nephews.
She was formerly employed by Aerovox Corporation as an Assembler for many years until her retirement. She enjoyed spending time with and doting on her family and friends, yet she still found time to volunteer for the Friends of the James White Memorial Library and serve as a Sunday school teacher. Retirement with her sweetheart Alan brought time for them to explore the East coast on numerous trips in their camper with their kitties. She loved nature and enjoyed watching the birds that came to her feeders (especially hummingbirds). Her indoor plants and outdoor gardens bloomed under her green thumb, including her Christmas cactus that blooms year-round. A prolific card writer, Carol was well known for the thoughtful and beautiful greeting cards she sent for all occasions. Carol’s legacy is one of love and laughter, as she was an incomparable teller of stories and jokes that brightened everyone's day.
Her visiting hours will be held on Friday, February 26th from 2-4 PM at the Saunders-Dwyer Home for Funerals, 495 Park St., New Bedford. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
