Carolyn M. LeCount, 83, passed away on Friday, December 11, 2020 at Miriam Hospital.
She was born in Providence, a daughter of the late Viola LeCount. She leaves one son, Jay LeCount, two daughters, Joyce LeCount and Wanda Cameron, one Godson, Vincent Clement, two adored granddaughters, Tenika Wright and Aneesah Cameron and one treasured grandson, Juan Cameron all of Providence.
She was a Youth Correctional Officer for the State of Rhode Island Training School. Prior to that she was a Home Life Supervisor for the former Rhode Island State Home for Children. She had a heart of gold and could always be counted on to lend a helping hand. She loved cooking for her family and friends and her home was always opened to all. She would often cook meals for her boys at the training school. Her motto was if I can reach one troubled kid than I am happy. But she reached several, always boasting when she saw them later on in life doing well. Many of them would visit her at her home and she always believed in treating them with respect.
Per her request, there will be no service. A memorial will be held post COVID. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, 200 Niantic Avenue, Providence, RI 02907.
