(Langone) Sampson, 83, of Methuen, formerly of Malden passed away peacefully with her daughters Elisabeth and Carolyn at her side Tuesday morning, May 16th at the Nevins Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.

Carolyn was raised in Malden where she attended the Malden Public Schools graduating from Malden High School with the Class of 1952.

On October 24th,1954, she married the love of her life, Russell E. Sampson and soon after welcomed a family of 3 daughters and 1 son.

   Both Carolyn & Russell were politically active at the state and local level throughout the sixties and seventies. Carolyn believed strongly in supporting and advocating for the civil rights and equal rights of all people. She was an avid reader and kept herself and others informed on these important issues. If there were topics that she knew were of particular interest to others, she would often pass along articles from the local papers she read daily. Keeping in touch with friends and family was always important to her. She also enjoyed date nights with her husband, Russell which usually involved dinner and a movie.

Paige, Jr of Westminster, son, Russell E. Sampson, Jr of Somerville, and daughter, Carolyn R. Wilkinson of Methuen. She was the loving sister of Barbara A. (Langone) Bielawski and her husband Chet W.
