Carol A. (Webster) Weston, a registered nurse and former resident of Sandwich, died September 13. Ms. Weston, 78, divided her time between homes in Marstons Mills and Lake Suzy, Florida.
She was the wife of William Weston, whom she married after studying nursing at New England Baptist Nursing School. Together they raised two daughters in Plymouth and then in Sandwich.
While living in Sandwich, Ms. Weston was director of the VNA Adult Day Health Center at Tradewinds Plaza.
When she was interviewed by the Enterprise in September 1997 for an article about the program, Ms. Weston had been with the center since its beginnings at Cape Heritage in 1987 and had watched it grow to an enrollment of 54, with 30 adults in attendance each day.
“Adult day care has only become popular since the trend toward home health care has become so prevalent,” Ms. Weston said. “We're one of four programs on the Cape that is state-certified, but we're really unique in that we're the first in the state to be in a mall like this. We're much more like a senior center, part of the community. It's worked out beautifully.”
During their retirement, Ms. Weston and her husband had spent 12 years living both on Cape Cod and in Florida.
In addition to her husband of nearly 56 years, she leaves their daughters, Karen Weston Hanesian and Wendy Weston; three grandchildren, Jack Weston Hanesian, Anna Weston Hanesian and Ruby Richard Weston; and extended family.
Visiting hours will be Friday, September 17, from 4 to 7 PM at Chapman Funerals & Cremations, John-Lawrence Chapel, 3778 Falmouth Road in Marstons Mills.
Burial will be private.
