Sally J Carr, 90 a long-time resident of Enfield, CT passed away peacefully on April 12, 2020 at Baystate Medical Center due to complications from Covid-19. Because of the virus the family was not able to be by her side. Sally was born March 13, 1930 in Springfield, MA. She worked as a Ward Secretary on West 1 at Wesson Memorial Hospital. She retired in 1983 expressing how much she enjoyed her job and co-workers. She was always baking and sharing her homemade desserts such as lemon filled cupcakes, english shortbread cookies, sour cream coffee cake and her famous lemon meringue pies.
For those who knew Sally, she was a loving wife, caring mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend. Sally always went above and beyond when and where she was needed. Whether it was to run an errand for an elderly person or comfort someone in time of need. She gave her all. Sally loved socializing with friends and visiting relatives. She also enjoyed knitting and crocheting baby sweaters, socks and novelty holiday pins. She loved swimming in the water and spending time on the beach. Enjoying many summers in the cottages at Clinton Beach, CT and her trailer at Card's Camp in Wakefield, RI with family and friends. In later years, winters were spent with her husband James in their mobile home in Coconut Creek, FL and also enjoyed spending time with her daughter Susan and her family in Boca Raton, FL. Sally especially enjoyed planning tea parties and luncheons at her home where she shared stories and memories with her long time friends, Ruth Maylott, Marion Loiselle, Nancy Vanderpoel, Tammy & Ricky Bennett, Janice Frost and many co-workers from Wesson Memorial Hospital. She was also a member of the Order of Eastern Star. Sally is predeceased by her husband James H (Diamond Jim) Carr who passed away Sept 10, 2016. She is survived by her four daughters Debra Wynglarz and her husband Frank of Chicopee, MA; Susan Hewitt and her husband Jay of Boca Raton, FL; Nancy De Leon and her husband Jose of Enfield, CT; Sandra Carr of Enfield, CT and her son Robert Carr of Granby, MA; five grandchildren Benton Carr and wife Stephanie, Ryan Hickton, Aubree Carr, Katie and Emily Hewitt. A new first great grandchild Anastasia Carr. Survivors include her nephew, grand nephews, grand nieces, dear friends and relatives. She is predeceased by her mother Florence(Crabtree) Higginbotham, father Benjamin Higginbotham, brother Edward B Higginbotham and daughter in-law Laura Cizek-Carr.
We were so lucky to have such a wonderful mother and will always remember her beautiful smile. Sally's family would like to thank the staff at East Village Place in East Longmeadow, MA where she resided in her sea shore themed apartment for 2 years. A special thank you to Shemika for always showing such kindness and compassion treating her like her own mother. She kept Sally busy with what she liked to do best. Folding the cloth napkins and taking the wrinkles out of the placemats for the dining tables. Sally was a person who would always touch someone's heart in some way or another. Everyone she knew would be able to express their opinion in how fun loving and supportive she was and how she impacted their lives. Everyone will have a memory that can hold in their hearts forever. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, all services are private. A celebration of Sally's life will be held at a later date. Burial will be at Enfield Street Cemetery. Donations can be made to: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Enfield Food Shelf, and the Alzheimer’s Association. To leave online condolences, please visit

Dear Bob, Benton, Aubree, & Carr Family & Friends,
So sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. To lose a mother especially is always hard; but to lose her during this pandemic makes it all the more heart wrenching. If there is comfort, it is knowing that her suffering is now over, and that you all provided her the love and care she needed for many years. You now have a special angel to watch over you.
Love & Prayers,
Sandy, Dolores, & Diane Manijak
