Carolyn S. Titcomb
May 24, 2023

Carolyn S. Titcomb (Mattapoisett, MA). The United States of America lost one of its oldest and most loved citizens this past Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at the age of 106 years, 46 days. In addition, Red Sox Nation and Patriot's Nation also lost one of their biggest fans. From April to October she could usually be found in front of her TV starting at 7:00pm cheering for her favorite Red Sox over the years: Pedro, Manny, Pedroia, Varitek, and of course Big Papi. In the fall, Carolyn could be found every Sunday cheering for her favorite players Gronkowski, Edelman, Welker, Vinatieri, and of course Tom Brady.

Carolyn passed away peacefully in the comfort of her own home with her beautiful granddaughter Julie at her side. She was born and raised in Bridgewater, MA. Right from the start of her life, she was a strong woman having survived a case of the Spanish Flu in 1918 at 18 months old. She graduated from Bridgewater High School in 1934, and was a proud member of the Girl's Basketball Team. At the time, girls were only allowed to play on half of the court, because in the 1930s it was against the rules for the girls to run up and down the full length of the basketball court! She married her husband (because he had a motorcycle) and proudly raised her 2 boys during World War II when there were no men around because they were all off fighting in the war. During her lifetime, she lived in several places including Keene, NH, Brockton, MA, Assonet, MA, and Mattapoisett, MA. Carolyn was a proud member of the Republican Party dating back to 1933. The 90 year grudge against Democrats began because her father was the Postmaster of Bridgewater, MA, and at the time this position was affiliated with the political party of the President. When President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (a Democrat) was sworn into office in March of that year, her father lost his job in the height of the Great Depression. She never let that one go.

Carolyn was predeceased by her husband Millard Titcomb, her sister Jane (Carroll) Welch and her husband Donald, and her nephews David and Kenny Welch. She is survived by her sons Peter Titcomb (Supply, NC) and William Titcomb (Marion, MA), her daughter-in-law Sharon Titcomb, her grandsons Peter Jr. (wife Tracey), Timothy (wife Nancy), Julie Whittemore (husband Richard), and Joshua (wife Cathey), and her 7 great-grandchildren: Peter Titcomb III, Anna, Lillian, Jack, Rory, Axel, and Ellis. She is also remembered by her nephew David's partner Margo Melnicove of Wayland, MA.

A special Thank you goes out to her much loved Helper of many years, Ann Rodriguez, and her Nurse, Emily Field, who were also a part of her chosen family. Carolyn was loved by so many friends and extended family at the Mattapoisett Housing Authority's Village Court on 1 Acushnet Road. In her final days, she made the decision to generously donate her body to Harvard Medical School (HMS), to see if they can unlock some of the secrets in her body that lead to such a long and fulfilling life. If they don't find anything on the inside, here are just a few secrets she displayed throughout her life on the outside. When you tell someone you love them, say "love you to pieces," when you thank someone you know, say "thanks a million," when it comes to cell phones and social media, she would say "it isn't the real world" so put it away, give lots of hugs, think happy thoughts, count your blessings, make your bed every morning, don't be afraid to hold a nice long grudge, have a bowl of Cheerios with a banana every morning for breakfast, and eat lots of Little Debbie Snack Cakes!

In honor of Carolyn's wishes, there will be no funeral services. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Community Nurse Home Care/ Hospice of Fairhaven, MA.
