Carolyn C. Winslow
Fitchburg held fond and rich memories of a father who she adored. They spent countless hours on Sunday mornings horseback riding, with a few of his 18 beloved hounds, somehow arriving home late,but just in time to miss the church service her mother expected them to attend. In 1940 at age 10 she was blessed, for the next four years, with two “almost sisters” from England through C.O.R.B (Children’s Overseas Reception Board), Ann and Dido. She stayed connected to them and their younger sister, Prue, throughout her life. Cush always had a bird book on the family’s Lazy-Susan kitchen table. In her beloved New Hampshire home she kept watch for spring black bears and their cubs crossing the field, an occasional moose near the pond or spring flowers blooming, often with her journal and pencil close at hand. Through playing the card game, Spite & Malice, with a group for over 30 years and her children and grandchildren, the family came to understand her strategic and competitive spirit. She was patient, loving, adventurous, artistic and strong.
In 2009, Cush and Nick moved to a small independent cottage at Edgewood in North Andover, where Cush created a beautiful home in a deeply caring community. She leaves her two daughters, Wende Beck and her husband, Tim of Norwich, Vt., Lili Winslow and Jim Weitz of Cambridge; her three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, Anna Beck Bimba and her husband, Scott, their two sons, Jackson and Kingston, Sam Beck and his wife, Abby, and son, Asher; and Chris Beck; her sisters-in-law, Nancy J. Winslow of Manchester, Judith Winslow Walcott and Peter Anastas of Gloucester, Mass.; and many nieces, nephews and friends that loved her. She was predeceased by her husband of 64 years, Sears C. Winslow; and her sons, Charles Todd Winslow and Bobby Winslow.
A celebration of her life will be held at Tupper Manor at Endicott College, Beverly, on June 1, 2018, at 2 p.m. Memorial donations may be made in Cush’s name to Montserrat College of Art, 23 Essex St., Beverly, MA 01915; Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary, 113 Goodnow Road, Princeton, MA 01541.
