FRAMINGHAM – Carol G. (Gibbons) Fritz, 78, a longtime resident of Framingham, died Wednesday, March 24, 2021 following a recent and brief illness.

Born in West Roxbury, Carol was the daughter of the late John and Elizabeth (Connors) Gibbons, and the beloved wife of Keith D. Fritz.

Carol was raised and educated in Buzzards Bay, and after secretarial school, began work at Otis Air Force Base.  It was there she met Keith, a young man from South Bend, Indiana who was stationed there and the rest is history. They married and settled in Framingham where they had two beautiful daughters.

Carol spent most of her work life and eventually retired after 30+ years at Bose Corporation.  She was always a dedicated, hard worker and made her way up within the legal department. 

Carol was a devoted wife and mother who loved nothing more than spending time with her family. Besides always loving a good book, she loved summer vacations on Cape Cod, driving the kids to anything and everything, and just being there for her family made her happy. In her later years, she enjoyed luncheons with her friends and a weekly game of mahjong.

Besides her husband Keith, Carol is survived by her daughters, Jodi and Kerry both of Peabody, her brother-in-law, Richard Taglienti, her niece Debbie Goldman, and her nephews, Rick and John Taglienti. Besides her parents, Carol was predeceased by her sister, Dorothy Ann Taglienti.

Considering her wishes there will be no wake and due to the current health restrictions, Carol’s family will honor, remember, and celebrate her life at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made in Carol’s name to: the American Lung Association, 1661 Worcester Road, Unit 301, Framingham, MA 01701,

 Arrangements by the McCarthy, McKinney & Lawler Funeral Home of Framingham.
