Obituary for Carole L. Curtin

CURTIN, Carole L. (Haskins). A long-time Medford resident, died on May 16, 2020 in Centerville, MA. Carole was born in Pittsfield to Walter and Monica Haskins. She received a BA degree from Smith College and an MA degree from Harvard University. In 1959, she married Dr. F. Gregory Curtin, Jr., a Winchester Hospital surgeon and lifelong Medford resident, who died in 1980.

Carole was the proud mother of Sally (Curtin) Hurley and her husband, Stephen of Centerville, Dr. F. Gregory Curtin III and his wife Ann, of Knoxville, TN, Walter T. Curtin of Westwood, Christopher Curtin and his wife, Linda, of Medford, and Andrew Curtin and his wife, Christine, of Reading.

If Carole’s children were her pride, her grandsons were her joy; Kevin Curtin, graduate of Georgia Tech and currently of Seattle, WA, Lt. Brian Curtin, graduate of USMA at West Point and currently serving in the Aviation Program in Enterprise, AL, and Matthew and Connor Curtin, currently attending high school in Reading, MA.

Carole’s true vocation was learning in all its forms. She instilled this passion in her own children and grandchildren as well as her students, teaching in the Pittsfield, Medford, and Winchester public school systems, and at St. Joseph’s School in Medford. After her retirement, she continued to educate, volunteering at the Eye Opener Program at the Museum of Science and as a member of the Doric Docents at the Massachusetts State House.

Carole’s lifelong passion was golf. She proudly represented Winchester Country Club on a state golf team and turns in her card after a great round, having never been bested by her husband or children.

A private viewing will be held on Friday, May 22nd at Keefe Funeral Home in Arlington, immediately followed by interment at Oak Grove Cemetery in Medford.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Harbor Point at Centerville, 22 Richardson Road, Centerville, MA 02632

Betsy Pesce

Dear family of Carole Curtin, my name is Betsy Pesce and our sons had Carole as their teacher in the fifth grade at Saint Joseph school. Such a lovely lady…and a class act! I am so truly sorry for your loss. Having lost my parents and grandparents, I have some idea what you are going through right now, and my heart goes out to all of you. Please know that you are in my thoughts and you have my prayers that God will help you all through this difficult time.
My mother always said that God never gives us more than we can bear, although He may really “test our mettle” sometimes, as He is surely testing your family’s now.
I know you must have so many happy memories of all of your years with Carole that will help to sustain you now. Continue to talk about her…tell the stories, laugh, cry...and above all, keep her alive in your hearts always.
With my deepest sympathy,
Betsy Pesce

Carole was my cousin but, growing up, we were more like sisters. As kids we survived the summer polio epidemic at each others homes, attended Smith together, and became teachers. However, my favorite memories are the two trips we took to Europe. Once our kids were grown and the grandkids thriving we went to Ireland to check out our roots. (We ate mostly Italian). The trip to France was even more exciting, especially the hills above Cannes where we found the Dior perfume factory and did some Christmas shopping. Carole was my soulmate. She was intuitive, generous and, best of all great fun. Jean Mooney
