Obituary for Carolyn Z. Wolf (Seskin)

Carolyn Z.  Wolf (Seskin)
Loving mother, grandmother, friend

Carolyn Zane (Seskin) Wolf, of Lowell, entered into rest on August 27, 2018, in Lowell, aged 85 years.

Born in Boston, November 23, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Israel and Rena Seskin, annoying but infinitely loving mother to Ira Wolf and Eric Wolf, second mother to Eric’s bride, Lucia Braconi Wolf, open spoiler and grandmother to Lennon Wolf and Harrison Wolf, cousin to the remarkably patient Herbert Stone, and dearest friend to all 'The Girls'.

Carolyn was an endlessly loving, hard-working, caring, and thoughtful woman who charmed everyone who met her. She was the driving reason that her sons were able to become the good men that they are today. She was funny, crazily frustrating to those with whom she shared DNA, and always trying to meet anyone new with whom she could share a story of her trips to Europe, the history of the United States, or the meanings behind Van Gogh’s paintings - all of which she did amazingly well.

Carolyn loved to talk, was a true friend to her lifelong "Girls", and clearly someone who could make a Rabbi call a Priest and ask about leftover sacramental wine. Her mind could shift directions from the wind of a butterfly’s wing. She was absolutely adored by students at the University of Lowell, her friends at the Lowell Senior Center, and the staff at the Wignall Animal Hospital, where she cared for her cats better than herself. Carolyn will be very sadly missed by every person who ever met her. Mom is gone but her life was well lived, she was loved by many, and stories of her will help to keep her memory alive for years to come. We love and already miss you, Mom.
