Carol A. (Rogers) Marchione, age 81, a former longtime resident of Framingham, died peacefully Sunday Feb. 24, 2019 due to complications from Alzheimer's Disease. She was born and raised in Waltham, a daughter of the late Joseph "Fred" Rogers and Ella (Terrio) Rogers. Following her marriage to Ronald Marchioni, she moved to Framingham where she raised her family and was an active member of the community for over 40 years. Kind, thoughtful, selfless and generous are just a few of the qualities that helped Carol touch the lives of so many.

Her membership in the MetroWest Leadership Academy gave her access to help the community directly. Professionally, Carol was a realtor for DeWolfe RE and Coldwell Banker where she achieved top recognition as a member of Exemplar and Chairman's Clubs and Coldwell Banker's President's Circle. Her love of music, theatre and walks in the woods will be carried on by her family as they cherish her memory.
