Carol grew up in Hampden, MA., under the loving care of the late Leon and Yvette Cote. She graduated from Cathedral High School and was a long-time Springfield and Palmer resident.

She is survived by her devoted children, Scott Daris of Palmer, David Daris of England, and Lynn Daris of Feeding Hills. She also leaves her sister Barbara Masaschi and her husband, David Masaschi of Florida. She joins her beloved son Steven Daris and her sister Theresa.
