Obituary for Carol "Lee" Seeckts

Carol 'Lee' Seeckts, died peacefully at her home on Christmas Day, surrounded by loved ones and her amazing hospice nurse, Kate Lowe. Her comfy, cozy home in Acton, with the ever present crackling fireplace, white Christmas lights and holiday decor, was a place where family and cherished friends visited for the 6 weeks between diagnoses and death from cancer. Lee was ever present and involved, asking questions, orchestrating how she wanted to pass as well as how she wanted everything to be to memorialize her.

Born and raised in Lincoln, Massachusetts, where she spent more than half her life, Lee was a 1962 graduate of Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School. It was shortly thereafter that she brought the first of her four children into the world with former husband Robert M. Malloy Jr, and thus began her journey, joy and task of raising her children, the period in her life that she cherished most of all. She enjoyed being a stay at home mom, being creative with crafts and games and baking, loved the outdoors and cherished the sun. Lee was an avid gardener, always grooming and expanding her perennial gardens and taking great pride in her window boxes and many pots of annual flowers. She loved being outdoors, and could often be seen mowing her lawn and tending her gardens in her hiking boots, cut off jean shorts and a bikini top. Lee was an avid bird lover with many bird feeders around the yard, always excited for the various species that she attracted. One of the highlights in her final days was seeing the deer grazing in her yard or passing through the woods.

Daughter of the late Jane Taylor and William Seeckts, she was a caring, considerate, compassionate, loving person who was appreciated and respected by those that had the good fortune to know her. Lee grew up next door to her father's nursing home and always had an affinity and connection with elder folks. She worked 2 and 3 jobs for much of her life, and her part-time jobs were always as a receptionist and then a CNA for nursing homes as well as for hospice. She was the primary caregiver for several of her loved one's for their end of life journey, and was blessed with amazing support, care and love for herself for her end of life journey as well.

Lee is survived by her husband and love of her life, Richard Taranto. Her children, Brenda Malloy, Kimberly Hennessy and husband Peter, Patrick Malloy and wife Lynnie, and Marc Malloy and wife Diane. She is also survived by her stepmother, Eleanor Seeckts, siblings, Jeff Seeckts and Linda Seeckts, several beloved brother and sisters-in-law, and several nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her sisters Jackie Duchesne and Sandy Zook.

Folks who met Lee found her endearing, she touched a chord with her love of life, down to earth manner, and easy laugh. Whether her children's school friends or her co-workers, or folks she ran into on the street, she quickly connected with people and they felt at ease and immediately opened up to her. People loved Lee, plain and simple. She embued her life with the qualities that mattered most to her...dependability, foresight, consideration, compassion, empathy and the ability to do what it took to get things done and make others comfortable.

Her true calling, and ability to be there for others, was unmatched and unequaled. A remarkable woman who has left this world a better place. She gave much to others, yet asked so little of herself. You rest now, mom. You've earned it. We love you.

Family and friends are invited for visiting hours on Friday, January 4th from 4 to 7 pm in the Dee Funeral Home, 27 Bedford Street, Concord Center. Her funeral service will take place on Saturday, January 5th at 11 am in the Farrar Chapel of the Dee Funeral Home, immediately followed by an end of life celebration at The Pierce House, 17 Weston Road, Lincoln. A private burial will follow at a later date.
