M. Carole (Leonard) Sinclair of Reading, entered peacefully in to Eternal rest August 21st, surrounded by her loving family. Born October 23rd 1947, Carole was the loving daughter of the late Mildred Griffin-Lyons and Charles Leonard. A graduate of Saugus High School Class of 1965, Carole was raised in the Golden Hills of Saugus. At the tender age of 15, Carole met the love of her life Donnie while working at Nelson’s Bakery. They married in 1969 and recently celebrated 54 years of marriage. Carole and Donnie raised their family in Reading where Carole was an active member of St. Agnes Family Liturgy. Finding her true passion later in her career, Carole loved her years as a caregiver for the elderly, treating each patient as family. But her favorite role was that of “Nana” and she was the truly the definition of the “fun, no rules Nana” – spoiling her grandchildren endlessly all while singing and dancing to her favorite Motown songs.
Carole is survived by her beloved husband Richard D. Sinclair, her children Nicole Silvers of Roswell GA, Michelle Corcoran and her husband Daniel of Wakefield, Paul T. Sinclair of Reading, son in law James Silvers, her brother Daniel P Griffin and his wife Ellen of Epping NH, and grandchildren Lauren and Addison Silvers, Amelia and Thomas Corcoran and Quinten Sinclair, as well as many loved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends. She is proceeded in death by her parents Mildred and Charles, sister Nancy J Roberts and brother Thomas M. Griffin.
