Carol M (Gross) Paul
November 29, 1941 ~ July 31, 2023 (age 81) 81 Years Old
Carol M. (Gross) Paul, of Hartland, Vermont passed away from metastatic cancer on Monday, July 31, 2023, at the Gill Odd Fellows Home in Ludlow, Vermont.
Carol was born November 29, 1941, in Decorah, Iowa to Everett W. and L. Mary (Harvey) Gross. After graduating from Decorah High School in Decorah, Iowa in 1959, she moved to Helena, Montana and met the love of her life, Richard (Dick) Paul, Sr. while he was stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, Montana.
She married Dick on August 22, 1964, and, after his leaving the Air Force, settled in Laconia, then Belmont, NH with their three children, Richard, Jr. (Rick), Kevin and Kathleen (Kathy). She worked in food service at the Belknap County Home and Lakes Region Hospital facilities in Laconia, NH before the family moved to Lebanon, NH where she worked for 27 years at Dartmouth Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Lebanon, NH retiring as a lead aide in 2008.
In 2012, she moved back to Montana to spend six wonderful years with Dick before moving back to Vermont to take care of Dick and be closer to her family.
Her passions included bingo, letting everyone know that Montana truly is the best place to live, that the Bismarck is the only real donut ever made, and serving as a 25-year member of the Post 22 American Legion Ladies Auxiliary in Lebanon, NH.
Carol was preceded in death by her husband and her granddaughter, Rabekka (Bekky) Paul. She is survived by her brother, Dalton Gross of Pueblo, Colorado, her three children, Richard Jr. (Kelly) of Hartland, VT, Kevin of Middlebury, VT and Kathleen (Scott) Daniels of Myrtle Beach, SC along with her grandchildren, Nicole LaBarge, Kristin Paul, Zachary Paul, Sarah Marshall and Aaron Daniels and a great grandson, Jackson LaBarge along with many nieces and nephews.
Per Carol’s request there will be no services nor flowers. However, in lieu of flowers, donations to American Legion Post 22 Ladies Auxiliary in her name would be welcome.
