Carol Frances Walsh of Pleasantville NY passed away suddenly on August 2, 2020. She was born on Christmas day in 1937 and was named accordingly. She was the second of three children of Sarah (née Anderson) and Deleon Walsh of Scarsdale NY (Edgemont). Her older sister Delsa Wilson resides in Harpswell, Maine and her younger sister Diana Losche resides in Buena Vista, Virginia. She was a graduate of Bronxville High School (’55) and NYU (‘59). She received a Master’s Degree in English from NYU and taught English as a second language at NYU for a number of years. She had a vast vocabulary and took pride in her abilities as a writer. Her writing skills landed her jobs for long stints at Ebasco and later the Port Authority of NY/NJ as a technical writer. She wrote a short story for children called “The Lonely Thumb” which was featured on a children’s television show and she published numerous articles on a wide range of topics including a story about kettle holes entitled “The Vernal Pond.” Carol loved animals, both domesticated and wild, and had an innate curiosity for the natural world. She was married twice and had a child from each marriage. Her older daughter, Gretchen Walsh, also resides in Pleasantville and her son Andrew Walsh of Montauk NY cared for his mother the last 9 months of her life and was residing with her at the time of her death.
The role she really cherished was as grandmother to Sarah and Max Parauda. They called her “Poppins” after the Mary Poppins character because of the magic she brought to all her interactions with them. Over the years she read them countless books, including all seven Harry Potter novels, which imbued them with a love of words and learning. Sarah says she was inspired to be a medical doctor (neurologist) by her grandmother. She is also survived by her three nephews David (Florida), Tim (Maine) and Doug Wilson (California) and her cousins Heyward (Woody) and Roger Turner. She will be interred at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, NY. A Memorial Service will be held at Beecher Flooks Funeral Home in Pleasantville, NY on August 18, 2020 at 6 p.m. There will be a link to participate via Zoom and anyone wishing to have the Zoom link should email with the preferred email address for the link. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to the Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York or to Family Services of Westchester.

Carol was a delightful and friendly neighbor. Her homemade blueberry muffins were a hit at our “Pleasantville Gardens” gatherings. She will be missed, but dearly remembered. Josie and Patrick Cooke

We are deeply sorry to hear of Carol's passing. She was an incredible woman. So lovely to learn how accomplished your mom was although not at all surprising in that she was and that we weren't aware of the breadth of her achievements. Your mom was always more concerned with learning about others than promoting her own accomplishments. Our giant family never deterred her from taking time to get to know each of us sincerely and sharing her generosity with the countless raspberry preserves and cranberry molds she made each year. Our Thanksgivings will be a little less bright without her presence but our lives are much richer in having known Carol Walsh.
God Bless you all,
Heather, Mark, Olivia, Charlotte, and George Parauda
