Carol A. (O’Toole) Stark, age 81, a longtime Chelmsford resident, passed away peacefully on October 6, 2020 at Lowell General Hospital, Lowell, surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of Neal Stark with whom she shared 62 years of marriage.

I'm so sorry to hear about Carol's passing. I had the privilege of getting to know Carol through golf at the Chelmsford Country Club. I enjoyed our weekly chats and hearing about her loving family. She always made me laugh. My sincere condolences to the entire family, and many friends. She will be greatly missed.
