Carolyn R. Congdon, 72, passed away peacefully on August 3, 2018 with her family by her side. She was in the care of Merrimack Valley Hospice, Haverhill, MA.
Carolyn was born in Lynn, MA, on September 14, 1945, daughter of the late Erwin and Rose (Turcotte) Rolfe. She was raised in Exeter, NH, graduated from Exeter High School, class of 1963, and graduated from Katharine Gibbs School in Boston. Carolyn was a realtor with her husband in the firm of Quayle-Congdon Realtors and later Bentley-By-The-Sea Real Estate.
Carolyn was an avid golfer as a former member of Abenaqui Country Club and enjoyed her summers walking the beach as a member of the Beach Club in Rye Beach. Carolyn loved her friends and always said, "You must be a friend to have a friend." She had a very positive attitude as evident by her almost 8 year battle with pancreatic cancer.
Carolyn was predeceased by her husband, Christopher C. Congdon in 2009 and her baby daughter, Sara Lynne Congdon. She is survived by her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, David J. Congdon and Margot B. Congdon; her niece, Caroline and nephews, George and Harry and many cousins.
At her request, there will be no calling hours. A Mass of Christian Burial will be at St. Michael Church, 9 Lincoln St., Exeter, NH, on Wednesday, August 8, 2018, at 11:00 AM, followed by the burial at Exeter Cemetery and a luncheon at the Exeter Inn.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Merrimack Valley Hospice, Haverhill, MA.
