Eunice Carden Tribute

PLAINVILLE - Eunice (Whittaker) Carden, widow of the late George Carden, passed away at the age of 92 on January 14, 2023. A longtime resident of Plainville, CT, she grew up in Shelton, CT, the  youngest child of the late Harold and Anna Whittaker. Upon graduating from Bay Path  Secretarial School in Longmeadow, MA, she pursued this career throughout her lifetime.  She retired in 1995 after working for 27 years as the first school secretary for the Louis Toffolon  Elementary School in Plainville, CT.

Eunice is survived by her son Christopher Carden and his partner, Rebecca O'Brien, and her  daughter Susan Carden-Flicker and her husband, Steven Flicker, along with cousins, nephews and nieces, and their children and many friends. She is predeceased by brother Douglas Whittaker, and sisters Theodora White and Hilda Guevin. 

A life member of the Appalachian Mountain Club, she was secretary of the Connecticut  Chapter in 1957-58. Her other memberships included the Connecticut Forest & Park  Association, the Friends of the Plainville Public Library, and the Plainville Historical Society.  Among the interests that she enjoyed were hiking, bird watching, sailing, reading mysteries and playing games, especially mahjong! In her later years she was an enthusiastic crocheter along with friends at the Plainville Senior Center. 

The family wishes to thank the wonderful and caring staff of Farmington Station Assisted Living for always making Eunice feel so very special during the last chapter of her life!
