Carla Lee (Bostrom) Fensick, 72, of Plainville, beloved wife of George J. Fensick, III, passed away at her home following a brief illness on Sunday, March 1, 2020.
Born in Worcester, MA on March 20, 1947, she was the daughter of the late Carl M. and Dorothy (Jolin) Bostrom. Raised and educated in the Wilson section of Windsor, she was a graduate of Windsor High School. After their marriage on November 19, 1966 Carla and George settled in Plainville where they shared 53 years of love and life adventures, raised three wonderful daughters, and became proud grandparents to three granddaughters. A devoted mother, Carla centered her life around her family for whom there was nothing she wouldn’t do, including taking them on many trips to her “happy place”, Disney World. She returned to work as her daughters grew older, and was a familiar voice on the phone at the former New Britain General Hospital, from where she retired after many years as one of their operators. Carla was a fan of baseball, especially chatting about the Boston Red Sox with her youngest daughter, enjoyed frequent rides to the casino and having lunch with “the girls”. She and George shared a mutual enjoyment in watching the Hallmark Channel, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Remembered for her selflessness, kindness towards others and love for her family, she will be missed greatly, leaving many cherished memories.
In addition to her husband, George, she leaves her daughters, Sharon Fensick of Plainville, Kimberly Fensick of Glastonbury, and Melanie Fensick of Maryland; her granddaughters, Hannah and Caitlin Charest and Emma Fensick Coderre; her sister Pam Canfield of North Carolina and brothers David Ferrante of Wyoming, and James Ferrante of California; along with several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a younger brother William.
Family and friends may gather in celebration of Carla’s life on Thursday from 5-8 p.m. at Plainville Funeral Home, 81 Broad St, Plainville. Funeral services will be held on Friday at 11:00 a.m. at The Congregational Church of Plainville, UCC, 130 West Main St, Plainville.
