D'Ann M. Caron

December 24, 1962 - August 22, 2017


   D"Ann M. (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 OvaScience.

   D'Ann 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 friends.

   D'Ann’s funeral will be held from the Weir-MacCuish Golden Rule Funeral Home, 144 Salem St., Malden, MA on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 9AM, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Joseph's Church, 770 Salem St., Malden, MA at 10AM. Relatives and friends may call at the funeral home on Friday,  August 25, 2017 from 4-8PM. Interment will occur in the Oliver's Grove Cemetery, Oldtown, MD on Tuesday, August 29, 2017.

   In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in D'Ann's memory to The Bread of Life, 54 Eastern Ave, Malden, MA 02148 or to Oliver's Grove Church, 15500 Walnut Ridge Rd. SE, Oldtown, MD 21555.
