More Tributes

My dearest mentor. You taught me to teach by your example, by your endless encouragement, and by your extraordinary enthusiasm for life and learning. Your impact on me when I was your student at Boston State instilled a love of teaching in me that is just as strong now four decades later.
For forty years, my answer to the question “which teacher made the greatest impact on your life” has been and always will be Carole Remick.
I will miss you profoundly, but I am so…

Carole was, in every sense, the epitome of the word she used so often: “Terrific.”

Carole was a strong woman I both admired and respected. She took me in and provided a path for me to achieve and I am forever in debt to her. Her impact is widespread and will continue through the kids in her program, which I am so proud to have been a part of. I will miss her dearly and keep her in my prayers.

Mrs. Remick was the reason I chose the college I attended (her alma mater), the reason I had so many wonderful experiences in journalism and continue to do so, and the reason I am so very sad today. You are missed terribly.

Thank you Mrs. Remick for providing a space where teens from all different cities can come together and realize their potential in journalism. You were such an amazing person to all of us who participated in NEHSJC. Thank you for giving us so much, throughout and beyond the program. Thank you for being you. I’m so grateful to have met you.

I knew Carole with a chance to work for her on a project. A very nice, warm and upbeat woman who always took care of my benefits! We became friend afterward. You will be greatly missed, Carole.

Carole was very kind to her colleagues here at U-Mass. Her upbeat personality and positive energy was infectious. She has touched many people’s lives for the better and will be missed by all who knew her.

Carole–how can we express the sorrow we are going through. So many years of great memories. We visited your home and you came to our home in Arizona. We took trips to Maine, Florida, Martha’s Vineyards, Canada and a cruise thru the Panama Canal. Our children Lynn, Mike and son-in-law Gary loved her as a Mom as well as our grandchildren Kailee and Brooke as Grandmother. We knew Carole some sixteen years and spent a lot of time in Arizona with her. She was always a Bright Star.

The Stover Family in Richmond VA expresses our deepest sympathy in the passing of Carole. So many “terrific” times were spent with her over the past 40+ years. Each year Carole would travel to Richmond and spend time with Essie and Dean Stover in Richmond and at their river condo in Urbanna looking out over the Rappahanock River in eastern VA. Carole couldn’t wait to eat freshly picked Hanover Virginia grown tomatoes and fresh VA crabmeat.

Aunty Bo was a life-long friend of my mothers and was always so kind to me. I cherish the time we spent with her in Mah-blehead in 1988 and again in 2009. On our most recent trip, she took us to the Institute for Contemporary Art, the Kennedy Library, hosted a neighborhood dinner, and made sure everything was perfect for us. She was indeed a TERRIFIC woman!

This past summer Ms.Remick helped me gain confidence in myself. She helped me realize that sometimes all you need is a little push and you are on your way.

My childhood and young adult memories are happier because Bosey (Carole) was such a big part of them. I will miss her and carry her in my heart forever.

Carole was a wonderful colleague for more than thirty years. Her commitment to students was deep and she had an acute eye for talent. She once referred a student to me who soon did all of the writing in our Title III program and became my administrative assistant. After retirement I would see Carole at Symphony Hall and UMass functions, where she was unfailingly upbeat. What a lovely human being!

Carole was one of the most wonderful people I have ever met! She’s looking down from heaven on each person whose life she ever touched that will surely keep her busy!

Because of Mrs. Carole Remick I have far more insight into the field of journalism. She gave me, and countless other students, a wonderful opportunity to succeed and further our writing abilities. Thank you for everything, you are greatly missed.

My time at Regis College was a turning point in my life; I’ll never forget the day when I received the letter of acceptance and started crying on the spot. The week changed my entire perspective of life. This program helped me open my eyes to a new realm of possibilities. I wouldn’t have made it this far without your dedication to Regis. I won’t forget the time when all of us were giddily planning the 25th edition of the paper. You will always be in my heart for your gentle kindness.

One of the Highlights of my summer this year was during the week at Regis College, during NEHSJC 2011. There I spent time with good friends, new and old, met some new, unforgettable and amazing people, got a taste of the field I love: Journalism, created great memories and learned a lot along the way. met that week was the woman Ms. Carole Remick.

Mrs. Remick is one the most giving people I have ever met. She gave us all confidence in ourselves not just as writers but in every other aspect. She believed in all her students and was willing to hand opportunities to everybody. In just the guestbook, everyone will be able to see the diversity of people who Mrs. Remick has influenced. I wouldn’t have realized half my potential without you! Thank you for everything!
