Carol Adams Fisher-Petrie

December 7, 1931 — March 7, 2022

Carol Adams Fisher-Petrie (nee Raymond), 90, died Sunday March 7th, 2021, surrounded by family. Carol was born in Stowe on December 7th, 1931, the youngest of Albert Raymond and Ruby Shaw’s seven children. She spent her childhood and childrearing years in Stowe. Carol had a real zest and a pure love for life that was reflected in her creativity, her golf, her love of the Boston Red Sox, her always glass half full nature and beautiful infectious smile. Her family and extended family were important to her. She looked forward to the trifecta 4th of July birthday celebration at the family’s camp at Metcalf Pond which brought together her parents, siblings, and their children for a weekend of celebration. She kept in touch with her nieces and nephews throughout the years. Carol had a passion for music, which she instilled in her children and grandchildren. Music would be playing on the radio as early at 6:30 in the morning, every morning. She danced to the music with her children and danced right up until the last months of her life. Carol felt it was valuable for everyone to learn to read music, play an instrument, or sing and dance. She took such pride that she played the same cornet as her grandfather, Howard Shaw. Carol loved to knit. She used her skills to knit sweaters, hats, and alter patterns for Three Green Doors and Moriarty’s. She worked at Stoware as a bookkeeper in the late sixties. Shortly thereafter, Carol opened her own yarn shop called Carol’s Yarns and Gifts, to share her love and knowledge of knitting with others. Within her family, she will be remembered for the precious Christmas stockings she knit for each new member of her family and extended family. The number of stockings that Carol knit sits at well over 100, each one adorning the family member’s name and birthyear. Over the years, Carol made many lifelong friends from caring for a multitude of children in town. She babysat local kids, as well as children of visiting families to Stowe. Throughout her life, those families remained very special to her. As her children got older, Carol was able to travel extensively in the US and the UK. She took up golf, which she enjoyed for the friendly competitiveness and social comradery the game brings. Golf became such a significant part of her life that she eventually moved to a golfing community in Florida, where she lived for over 35 years. Carol met countless friends along the way. Although Carol spent many years living in Florida, she always referred to Stowe as home; forever a proud Stoweite. Never one to sit still, in her retirement, Carol designed and fabricated large “puppy puppets” that characterized as a Big Shaggy Dog. Later, Carol and her husband showcased the puppets and were able to market and sell them. Carol sewed each one herself, watching them come to life in the hands of all sorts of puppeteers, young and old, novice or expert. Carol’s love of live theatre and performance art was shared with her husband Cal with whom she shared many wonderful years. Carol leaves behind her daughter Linda Adams and friend Tom Boisvert; daughter, Diann Percy and her husband Chip; son, William (Billy) Adams and his wife Lesley; her grandchildren; Scott LaMonda and wife Ivelisse, Elizabeth LaMonda and husband Matt Phillips; Christopher LaMonda and wife Shayla; Meghan Percy Savage and husband Carl; Matthew Percy and wife Chelsea; and her youngest grandchild, Callum Adams. She had 11 great grandchildren. Carol was predeceased by her firstborn child and eldest son, Raymond Kim Adams (Kimmer). A graveside service will be held on July 9th at Riverbank Cemetery in Stowe at 11 am.
