Carol went to be with the Lord at age 86 after an extended illness in St. Albans on April 30, 2022, at home. She was born on October 7, 1935, in St. Albans, Vermont, daughter of Helen (Maun) and Daniel Francis Doheny. Carol graduated from St. Mary's High School in 1953. Carol worked as a telephone operator for the phone company prior to marrying Richard Lapan on December 2, 1961, at St. Mary's Church in St. Albans, Vermont. She remained home to nurture her children while they were young, and later worked as a nursing assistant at Verdelle Village. Carol cherished her late husband, children, grandchildren, camping at the summer cottage, long walks, the autumn foliage, scenic drives, and her faith. Carol is survived by her children, Craig and wife Darcy of Brighton, Michigan, and Lynda Lee of Shelburne, Vermont; her grandchildren, Nathan of Camp Pendleton, California and Karyssa Garafano-Lapan of Shelburne, Vermont.
