Nancy Ruth Carroll

Nancy Ruth Carroll of Weymouth, MA, but forever a force from South Boston, moved on to eternal peace on November 19, 2023 after 82 years of defying the odds and spreading such a zest for life to those who were blessed to be in her path that she will be welcomed with open arms into the kingdom of heaven to cast her everlasting light upon us all. 

Nancy entered the world on July 20th, 1941 to her parents John Maurice Carroll and Mary Gertrude (nee Lynch) in South Boston, diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at birth.  With her first breath, she made the choice that no obstacle was too big to overcome.  Not only did she celebrate more days on this earth than any of her immediate family of six, she spread more love, compassion, wisdom, and a spirit to persevere than most of us only dream of.  Most importantly, she never doubted herself, and thank God for that, because her spirit knew no bounds and her kindness found no foes.  A woman of strong faith, Nancy thought nothing of walking unaccompanied for miles on end to commute to work, attend Mass, or complete a grocery run.  She was an avid patron of the Hingham Commuter Boat in its early days where she developed lifetime friendships, while working at a Boston Workshop sponsored by the Commonwealth before retiring at 65. In addition to her undying optimism, Nancy will be forever remembered for her keen wit and passion for her Irish Heritage; rides on the Swanboats; Lunches at Jacob Wirth’s; St. Patrick’s Day Parades; Annual monogrammed cloth calendars;  and never forgetting a Wedding Anniversary with a heartfelt handwritten greeting card. Nancy had a contagious laugh to match her sharp sense of humor, and no party began before Aunt Nancy arrived! 

Survivors include her many beloved nieces and nephews and their extended families around the country. Nancy was predeceased by her two sisters, Claire and Mary Anne, and her brother John, as well as her loving furry companions, MacGregor and Shawno.
