Shirley H. Carroll, 82 a resident of Petersburgh, NY passed away Thursday, March 19, 2020, following a long illness with her girls beside her at the Center for Living and Rehabilitation in Bennington, VT. Born in Bennington Vermont on December 7, 1937, Shirley was the daughter of the late Ralph J. and Alma (LaPointe) Leonard. Shirley was a student of the Bennington school system, however, she went back to school in her early 50’s to obtain her GED, and passed the first time!
Shirley was employed for thirteen years at Seagrotts in Berlin NY until her retirement in 2002. However, her most loved job was a manager at McDonalds in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She loved her patrons and her daily seniors. She enjoyed ceramic; however, her real love was her children and family, and the family gathering that took place through the year, every year, over the years. Grandchildren remember “Blueberry Porking”
Survivors include three of her children, Kathy Woodward (Tom) of Pownal, Vt., Kelley Greene (William), and Colleen Manchester (Greg), both of Petersburgh, NY and a stepson Keane Carroll of Salem, NY. Sixteen grandchildren and many great grandchildren; her Sister Marion Noyes of Bennington; two brothers, Ralph Leonard Jr. of Pownal, Vt and Nelson (Toby) Leonard of Bennington, Vt., along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Shirley was predeceased by four children, Pamela, James, Michael and Maureen, along with a grandson William Quidgeon and two husbands, David Walker in 1974 and William Carroll 1990; six sisters Louise Peacock, Beulah Racicot, Velta Thayer, Beatrice Olin, Barbara Baker, and most recent Eva O’Dell.
Due to the unprecedented times with the COVID-19 virus there will be no public service held. A celebration of her life will take place in the future when the world has healed. A private committal with her girls will take place at the Berlin Community Cemetery.
Should any one desire to make a memorial contribution in Shirley’s name, they can be made to SVMC Infectious Disease Department to aid in combating this virus thru the office of Mahar & Son Funeral Home, 628 Main Street, Bennington, VT. 05201.

Kelley & Family,
So very sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I worked with Shirley at Seagroatt's for many years and have such great memories from those days. She always made those around her laugh! Great lady and great memories.
May she have peace now.

My mom was a ticket, a lot of fun, enjoyed life immensely, always willing to go anywhere, try anything, accepted any challenge with a smile and a determinate not to be matched for most of her life. Very strong in her beliefs and convictions. The death of her first child, Pamela was devastating, and this I believe was the beginning of her early aging and many multiple health issues. While trying to heal from that loss, another catastrophic death, her son James, about 18 months later, followed by her son Michael, then Maureen, and her grandson William,, not to mention 2 husbands. I KNOW I know NO ONE THAT HAS SUFFER LOSS SUCH AS MY MOM. Her heart was never able to mend, she was never able to return to her life of fun-loving and laughter, even though she did try. May you rest easy, visit with everyone, hug and kiss all for us remaining, for we will continue to be a family build by a strong, stubborn, determined woman, and laugh often as we gather in the future to celebrate anything and everything we can, while we tell our families stories , as we always have!
Love ya Mom! Kelley
