Carolyn Mae Kiley, age 89 years, of Plymouth, died Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at Laurelwood in Plymouth. She was the wife of the late Paul C. Kiley, and the daughter of the late Joseph and Ruth (Brunt) Noonan. Born on July 22, 1932 in Laconia, New Hampshire, Carolyn was a “city girl” having been raised in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston. She treasured her many visits to the family farm in New Hampshire as a child. She attended Mt. Ida College receiving an associate’s degree and then married the love of her life in 1955. The military brought them to California, where they enjoyed many west coast adventures. Upon returning to the east, they raised their family on the South Shore of Massachusetts in Hanover, Norwell and at their beloved Priscilla beach in Plymouth. She was a loving mother and a nurturer to all her extended family and close friends who were always welcomed into her home. She had a sense of style, a love of the ocean and a love of adventure. Her greatest love was for her family.
She will be sadly missed by her children, Margaret Kiley and her husband Richard Bowman of Plymouth, and her son Paul Kiley and his wife Kristine Kiley of Plymouth, grandchildren, Justin Bowman, Micayla Bowman, Emma Bowman and her husband David Gilmore, and Anna and Kaitlin Kiley. Her sister Jayne Hurlburt of Clearwater, Florida, and her brother Joseph Noonan and his wife Kathy of Mashpee and Florida. She also leaves behind her many nieces and nephews, and also, her brother-in-law Charles O’Brien of Sandwich.
