Carol Dorothy Hadley, 80

Carol Dorothy Hadley passed away peacefully surrounded by family on January 9, 2024, in Burlington, VT at the age of 80.

Carol was born Lawrence, MA on October 4, 1943, daughter of Anita (Blanchette) and Robert Levasseur.  She grew up in Lawrence where she attended school, worked in mills as a shoemaker and textile operative, married Willard Warren Hadley in 1966, raised three children alongside her loving husband and was later employed for nearly 20 years at the Internal Revenue Service. In 1997 she moved to Methuen, MA where her part-time job at AMC Theatres fostered her passion to become a cinema enthusiast.  She was outgoing and easily made friends at every stop along the way of life.  She especially cherished any time spent with her grandchildren, particularly when cards, board games, crocheting, and puzzles were involved.  Carol was loved by everyone who knew her and will be greatly missed.

Carol is survived by her three children: Warren (Dawn) Hadley of Duxbury, MA, Dawn (Matt) Coleman of Starksboro, VT, and Rhonda (John) Zodda of Londonderry, NH, eight grandchildren: Vanessia (Miles) MacArthur, Samantha (Joseph) Hill, Jessica (Dylan Devoid) Martell, Drew Hadley, Madison Hadley, Makenna Hadley, Drake Hadley and Jennifer Zodda, and six great-grandchildren.  She was pre-deceased by her husband Willard Warren Hadley and two brothers, Robert Levasseur and Ronald Levasseur.
