D'Ann M. Caron
December 24, 1962 - August
(Martin) Caron, age 54, of Malden, MA, passed away suddenly on
Tuesday, August 22, 2017. She was the beloved wife of Dr. Paul
R. Caron, her husband of 30 years, and the loving mother of five
children: Michael A., Stephen J., Laura K., Benjamin R., and
Daniel P. Caron. D'Ann was born and grew up in Cumberland, MD.
She was the daughter of Georgia M. (Wolfe) Martin and the late
Aloysius M. Martin of Cumberland, MD, and the sister of Don’a M.
Martin of Reisterstown, MD.
D'Ann met her
husband Paul in Baltimore, MD while they worked at Johns
Hopkins. The couple married in 1986 and later moved to
Massachusetts, where D'Ann received a Master's degree from
Harvard University. D’Ann spent 29 years working as a laboratory
manager at Harvard University, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and
derived great joy from continuously seeking out new
experiences in life, both big and small. She was an avid
traveler and visited many exotic locations during her
lifetime, including Antarctica, the Arctic Circle, and the
Galapagos Islands. However, she also was excited by simpler
sights in life, from lighthouses to flowers to wildlife.
Warm and welcoming, she met and befriended people wherever
she went and was an active member of the community,
frequently volunteering for organizations such as school
parent groups. She will be missed dearly by family and
D'Ann’s funeral will be held
