Jeannette Carroll Tribute

WALLINGFORD - Jeannette (Bergeron) Carroll, of Wallingford, entered into eternal rest peacefully on February 6, 2024, at Branford Hospice at the age of 96. She was the beloved wife of the late William Carroll.

Jeannette was born on December 17, 1927, to the late Eva (St. Pierre) and Hermas Bergeron in Biddeford, Maine. She is survived by her two devoted daughters, Susan Lake of Wallingford and Janet Canning of Northford, along with her cherished grandchildren, Christopher, Bryan and Nicole Canning. She is also survived by her loving brother Henry, along with several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother Raymond and former son-in-law Billy Canning who was like a son to her.

She grew up in Meriden, CT attending St. Laurent Catholic School, followed by employment at the phone company as a switchboard operator. After her marriage to Bill, she moved to Wallingford, where she lived on Clinton Place. She enjoyed monitoring who came and left the street on a daily basis, and she was the last of the original residents on that street. Jeannette was fortunate to be cared for by her daughter Sue in the later years of her life, and most recently by her daughter Janet. Jeannette held various jobs in her lifetime, from Barkers Department Store, Cooper Jarrett Trucking, Puritan Fireplace, and ending her working years at The Masonic Home and Hospital. She was a devoted parishioner at Our Lady of Fatima Church, where she sat in the same pew for over 50 years.

Family meant the world to Jeannette, and we were so fortunate to have her with us as long as we did. She is finally reunited with her Bill after waiting 25 years. The family would like to thank her "Wednesday daughter", Brenda M., along with Barbara S. for all of their care and kindness to Jeannette.

All services were private, and she was laid to rest at St. John Cemetery, Wallingford. The B.C. Bailey Funeral Home of Wallingford, CT was entrusted with her final arrangements.

Jeannette enjoyed the company of her four- legged friends throughout the years, therefor, contributions may be made in her memory to the Meriden Humane Society, 311 Murdock Avenue, Meriden, CT if so desired.
