Carolyn Ruth (Degler) Campbell, 86, of Hopkinton and formerly Holliston, passed away Nov. 22 in Hopkinton. Born in Dover, New Hampshire, and raised in Durham, New Hampshire, she was the daughter of the late professor Carroll M. and Ruth (Loring) Degler.

Carolyn attended Northfield Mount Hermon School and graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor’s in social work. She spent the beginning of her lengthy career with the American Red Cross, where she worked in administration as well as disaster relief across the United States. Her affable nature, compassion and personal touch led her to serve in a management role in the Massachusetts Department of Employment and Training, from which she eventually retired.

Carolyn will be missed dearly by her brother, Dr. Robert Degler and his wife, Carol. She will be fondly remembered by her nieces and nephews, Jane Keltonic (Brad), Scott Degler (Melanie) and Kent Degler (Sherri).

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, Dec. 11, at 11 a.m. at Lake Grove Cemetery in Holliston. Arrangements are under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton.
