Carolyn J. (Lloyd) (Whitney) Cuddy

July 23rd, 2014

Carolyn J. (Lloyd) (Whitney) Cuddy, age 64, of New Hampshire, formerly of Wilmington, MA and Woburn, MA, died peacefully on July 21, 2014, following a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Carolyn was born on May 1, 1950; she was the cherished only daughter of the late Arthur and Evelyn (Anderson) Lloyd. Carolyn was raised and educated in Wilmington and was a graduate of Wilmington High School with the Class of 1968.

Carolyn lived in Woburn for many years where she raised her two wonderful daughters Lisa and Laurie. Carolyn was very devoted to her family and she loved being a mom. Carolyn enjoyed spending time with her girls, whether it was camping, trips to Hampton Beach or other family vacations, they always had a great time together. When Carolyn became a “Grammy” her world got even better and she always beamed with pride when she talked about her grandchildren. Carolyn also had a soft spot for all animals especially cats.

Carolyn worked for many years as an Administrator for Computer Vision where she made countless friends throughout the years. Carolyn was a “go getter” and eager to continue learn so she went back to school later in life and earned a Bachelor Degree in Human Resources as well as Business Management from Valdosta State University in GA.

Carolyn was very talented when it came to painting, sewing, knitting and making all kinds of crafts that she shared with her family and friends. In her spare time she enjoyed going to ceramic classes and bowling on several leagues. She also was known to break into a dance if the music moved her no matter where she was. Her love for music brought much joy and comfort throughout her life.

Carolyn will be remembered as a caring and sweet woman who loved her family unconditionally. She handled her illness as best as she could with strength, courage, grace and even humor. She was quite a lady and will be truly missed.

Carolyn was the beloved wife of the late Joseph Cuddy, devoted mother of Lisa Whitney Scott and her husband Erik of Westborough, MA and Laurie (Whitney) Tobine and her husband Frank of Concord, NH, loving “Grammy” of Brenden and Zakary Tobine and Emerson Evelyn Whitney-Waite, cherished daughter of the late Arthur and Evelyn (Anderson) Lloyd, dear sister of Arthur Lloyd and his wife Charlotte of Washington and Walter Lloyd and his wife Donna of Dedham, MA, former wife of Peter Whitney of Salem, NH, as well as many nieces and nephews.

    For Carolyn, Lisa and Laurie:

    You painted no Madonnas
    on chapel walls in Rome
    But with a touch divine
    you lived one in your home

    You wrote no lofty poems
    that critics counted art
    But with a nobler vision
    you lived them in your heart

    You carved no shapeless marble
    into some high soul design
    But with a finer sculpture
    you shaped this soul of mine

    You built no great cathedrals
    that centuries applaud
    But with a grace exquisite
    your life cathedraled

    God Had I the gift of Raphael
    or that of Michelangelo
    Oh, what a rare Madonna
    my mother’s life would show

    I find myself staring at your picture wanting nothing more than to be able to climb into it and join you in conversation, silliness and laughter. Reminiscing your warm, genuine and at times (more than not) mischievous smile causes me to ache even more for your presence. I’ve constantly missed you terribly already! You’ve left your mark on my soul forever. I couldn’t possibly ever forget you. Endless thank you’s for your true wonderful faithful friendship. I was and will now forever be blessed to have had shared that bonded honor. It never got old for a second Carolyn. I am so grateful to know in my heart you knew that. And I know without hesitation if the shoe was on the other foot you would be right there. When words failed to surface anymore YOU took MY hand… and all was well. THAT memory is beyond precious to leave me with. It’s sooooo hard to let you go my sweet, sweet Tootsie Doodle. For now…. xoxo….
