Carol J. Kangas

Carol J. Kangas, 72, of Ludlow, passed away peacefully July 9, 2017, at her home with her beloved “Ron” Yarish, with whom she lived and enjoyed the loving home they built together more than 25 years ago.

Carol was loved by all that knew her; her natural beauty and elegant style, positive, caring and gentle, and kind spirit was lifting to all. Her energy was endless and infections.

Carol and her beloved Ron enjoyed their home and created a lovely sanctuary of flowers, lush lawns and peaceful perfection for themselves and the birds.

Carol enjoyed gardening, antiquing, reading Danielle Steel novels, walking, biking and days at the beach. She was soft, warm, positive, caring and a True Angel.

In Carol’s final months, she chose solitude at her home with Sweet Ron and Deanna, but was truly grateful to her family, friends and neighbor’s for all of prayers, calls, cards, letters, pictures and flowers and all of the kindness and love, she felt it all.

Carol was born Jan. 12, 194,5 and a 1964 graduate of Springfield High School and attended college in Cambridge, Massachusetts

Carol worked at Parks and Wilson in Springfield for 35 years as an executive secretary and after its closing, Carol went to work with Jane Bixby at Trails End Accommodations in Ludlow, where she was adored by all of her clients for her detailed professionalism and her kind and caring way.

She is survived by her beloved Ron Yarish and his three children, Heidi Yarish-Coburn of Campton, New Hampshire, Paige (Heather) Wolfe of Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Collier Yarish, of Sebastian, Florida and three grandchildren.

Siblings Dolores Eastman and William Eastman, both of Springfield, Linda Rutter of Lima, Ohio and Richard Eastman of Springfield and adoring spouses and nieces and nephews.

And her niece Deanna Carroll, who will forever miss her. And Deanna’s husband Chris and son T.J. of Rockingham.

She was predeceased by her parents, Norman and Norma Eastman of Springfield; and a long ago love, Robert “Bobby” Armstrong.
