She was born September 10, 1926 in Boston, Massachusetts to Leo and Caroline Paquette. She grew up and attended school in Massachusetts.
She moved to Los Angeles, California in 1948, where she met and married Harry Wuthrich. She lived there until 1980, when she moved back to Massachusetts, settling in Cape Cod. She worked for a newspaper as production assistant and proofer while in Massachusetts.
In 1995, she and her husband, Harry, moved to Lexington, where they quickly made friends. Carol was an active member of First Christian Church in Lexington, and loved her Sunday School class.
She was also a member of the Lexington Garden Club, joining almost from the day she moved to Lexington.
She and Harry were two of the first employees of the Lexington Leader, coming to work for them in November 1997 when the paper launched its first issue. Carol served the Leader as a proof reader and a production assistant until 2003.
She had a great sense of humor, loved music and played both the piano and the organ. Carol remembered everyone’s birthday, sending cards to mark each occasion, bringing joy to many in the area.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Harry, and one son, Paul Kuster.
Carol is survived by five sons: John Kuster of Bastrop, Texas, Bryan Kuster of California, Buddy Syler of Lexington, Dale Syler of California and Leo Syler of California; two brothers: Leo J. Paquette of Somerville, Mass. and Edward H. Paquette of St. Petersburg, Fla., and a sister, Rita E. Lyon of North Chelmsford Mass.
She was fondly remembered by her friends at First Christian Church during the regular church service on Sunday, September 1, 2013.
