Carol Ann Mahoney Suits

  • BORN: January 31, 1935
  • DIED: March 15, 2017
  • LOCATION: Old Saybrook

Carol Ann Mahoney Suits, 82, of Old Saybrook, CT died on March 15, 2017, of natural causes at Aaron Manor in Chester. She was the loving wife of Bill Suits Sr. for 54 years. Carol was born January 31, 1935 and raised in East Orange, New Jersey. She graduated from Clifford Scott High in 1953 where she was a phenomenal athlete and very involved in a variety of school activities and student government. Carol's popularity growing up was well known and she had a great group of friends whom she remained close with throughout her entire life. Carol was named to New Jersey All State teams in field hockey and basketball during her high school years and attended Keystone Junior College in Pennsylvania. At Keystone she also excelled athletically and it was there that she met Bill and they were married shortly thereafter. Carol and Bill moved to Old Saybrook in 1963 raising four children and lived there the remaining years of their lives. Carol was extremely popular in the community for over 6 decades. She was a centerpiece working in the Old Saybrook Town Hall for over 30 years and was well known to town employees and civic leaders across multiple generations. Her smile and signature Irish laugh were infectious to all around her and became a staple at the Town Hall and throughout the community. Carol was a devout Catholic who attended Saint John's parish with her family for over 50 years and took joy in attending most of her children's holy sacraments there. She was an accomplished piano player, avid golfer and tennis player until her early 40's when she was stricken with Rheumatoid arthritis and was unable to do those things she loved for the rest of her life. One of her greatest hallmarks was that she managed her difficult affliction with grace and dignity and never complained. Carol's greatest passion was her fierce devotion to her family and was the living definition of understated elegance. She always shunned the spotlight in favor of Bill (who loved it) and her children, who for better or worse always seemed to find it. Carol will be missed by all and leaves those her loved ones a treasure chest of memories that will always burn bright. Carol is survived her daughter Barbara Storms and husband Geoff Storms of La Grange Park, IL; son William and wife Paula of Rossmoor , CA; son Michael of Old Saybrook; son Peter and wife Katie of Guilford, CT; brother John Mahoney and wife Diane of Scotch Plains, NJ; and 11 amazing, beautiful grandchildren. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at 10:00AM at Saint John's Church, 161 Main Street in Old Saybrook. Burial will follow in the Riverside Cemetery in Old Saybrook.
