Obituary:
Old Orchard Beach, Carolyn M. Davis, 70, of Pine Ave passed away February 8th, 2019 at home with her family.

She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on July 18, 1948 the beloved daughter of the late Theodore and Delores (Abromaitis) Lamparski.

She was a graduate of Archbishop Prendergast High School in Pennsylvania. After graduation, she studied education at West Chester State College.

She and her husband moved to Maine in 1974. Active in the local community, she worked as an assistant librarian for the Libby Memorial Library in Old Orchard Beach. Her proudest accomplishment was in directing the startup of the Old Orchard Beach Community Food Pantry, and in directing the successful operation of the pantry for several years to the benefit of many area residents.

She was thoughtful, honest, and fiercely protective of her family, friends, and those in the community to which she dedicated her support. She was a voracious reader, and a prolific and very talented writer who enjoyed writing short stories and poetry. Her husband called her the love of his life.

She is survived by her husband Edward Davis after 46 years of marriage, her sons Edward John Davis of Old Orchard Beach and Nathaniel Paul Davis and wife Jeni of Gorham, her brothers Thomas Lamparski and wife Gail of New York, Theodore Lamparski and wife Angelina of Pennsylvania, her sisters Kathleen Szkaradnik and Teresa Rushka and husband Bill of Pennsylvania, by many nieces and nephews, and by her beloved grandchildren Charlotte, Angeline, and Olivia Davis. She was predeceased by her brother Paul Lamparski, husband of Lee.

Carol was nothing less than a loving sister and fantastic role model for me. Despite being 11 years older and 3 siblings in between, spent a great amount of quality time with me growing up and made me feel included - listening to the artists of the day on her hi-fi stereo (Beatles, Melanie, etc.), taking the trolley down to the 69th street shopping area in Philadelphia, dining at the Arrow restaurant, and driving to many points of interest in her Studebaker over its unfortunately way-too-short life. Somehow she finagled our parents into letting her take me on my first two big adventures - a week in a seaside motel in Atlantic City, and my first trip to the Big Apple. Along the way we spent countless hours in deep conversation, and I was always intrigued by the frequent attention she gave to her notebooks - sketching away or composing poetry or short stories. I am even more amazed and proud of the work she did to support her community and people in need - flying under the radar and never expecting or desiring recognition. What a virtuous role model for me and others. I love you Carol and always will. My heart goes out to Ed, EJ, Nate, Jeni, and Carol's beautiful granddaughters – we have all lost a wonderful lady.
