Carol Marie D'Amour

January 28, 1926 — December 6, 2023

Elmsford, NY

Carol (nee Metzler) D’Amour, age 97, died peacefully on December 6, 2023, with her daughter at her side, after a long illness.  She was born in White Plains, New York on January 28, 1926 to Gustav and Katherine (nee O’Leary) Metzler. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Armand, in 2019.  Loving mother of the late Bruce (Judy), Kathryn (Michael) Shea, and Marylee. Proud grandmother of Mandy (Kevin) Gillian, David (Vanessa), Courtney (Matthew) Winters, James Shea, and Jessica (Mina) Rezk and adoring great-grandmother of Declan, Charlie, Nora, Charlotte, Sophie, Ryan and Juliette.

Carol was a life-long resident of Elmsford, New York, graduated from Our Lady of Mount Carmel School and the Academy of Our Lady of Good Counsel.  She attended business school in New York City and worked for a brief time before she became a mother and homemaker.

On July 24, 1948, Carol and Armand were married at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.  She remained very active in the Church and served as President of the School Parent’s Guild, was a Eucharistic Minister, and was a member of the Rosary Society.  She was also one of the founding members of the OLMC Food Pantry.  In addition to her service to her Church, she loved to travel, socialize with friends and play golf.  She was a member of Knollwood Country Club for over 60 years and played with the Nine-Hole Ladies’ group.  She often shared that she enjoyed the after-golf luncheon much more that the game!

The most important part of Carol’s life was her love of family and care for her special needs daughter, Marylee.  Special thanks to the staff of YAI Tarrytown and the Falmouth House who continue to provide loving care for her.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to:  YAI Tarrytown, 677 White Plains Road, Tarrytown, NY 10591 or Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, 59 East Main Street, Elmsford, NY 10523.
