Carolyn R. (Nett) Agostino passed away early today, November 14th at the Care One Nursing Center, in Wilmington.  The beloved wife of the late Nick Agostino and Walter Kozachuck, she was seventy-four years of age.

Carolyn was one of seven children born to the late Joseph and Frances (Coccoluto) Nett.  Raised and educated here, the Nett family made their home in the Hammond Square section of the city.  It was in the Hammond square section of the city, right on Main Street, where the “Donut Kitchen” owned by the Nett family, prospered for many, many decades.  It was also where Carolyn and later her children, worked along side all her family members as she was growing up.  From sweeping the floors to being a waitress behind the counter, they did it all!

Carolyn graduated from Woburn High School in 1962.  Several years later, a family member and friend set Carolyn up on a date!  That’s when she met Walter Kozachuk, whom she married and spent over twenty-five years together.  Sadly, Walter had passed away, but they had two beautiful daughters, who have remained lovingly attentive to their Mom.

Carolyn began working in the Woburn School System, where she continued to work for 22 years, in various positions at Woburn High School, Joyce Middle School, Goodyear and Hurld Elementary.  She remained in the school system until retiring in 2011.

After the death of Walter, Carolyn remarried a friend they both knew, Nick Agostino.  Together they journeyed for almost twenty years.  They enjoyed travelling to Canada, Niagra Falls, Bermuda and visiting with their grandchildren out in the state of Washington.  Dining out with her husband and family was always a treat.  Every Sunday, Carolyn, Nick and her brother Joe would all go to church together.  

When it came to the holidays, Carolyn loved to entertain all of her family.  Baking, and cooking for all with a beautifully  decorated home, very tastefully done for each and every holiday. Her cooking was always Italian and out of this world! Abundant was the only word to describe all the food that was there for all to enjoy.   

Carolyn was very active throughout her entire life with all the different organizations she belonged too.  Mission of Deeds,  Sons of Italy, Elks, Meals on Wheels. And she was an intricate part of each. She had a wonderful knack of planning events, from start to finish, knowing exactly what needed to be done, and it was!

Family was truly what Carolyn’s life was all about.  She loved her children unconditionally and was extremely proud of all their accomplishments. The young ladies they had become and their families were all very dear to her.  Life became very special for her when her grandchildren began arriving, and “Grammy” became her Monica.

Sadly, Carolyn was predeceased by her parents Joe and Frances, her husbands Walter and Nick and her siblings Mary Pedi, Tony, Domenic, and Frank Nett.

Carolyn is lovingly survived by her daughters and their spouses, Kristen Stevens, her husband Craig of WA and Kerri Foisy, her husband Keith of Methuen, her siblings Joe Nett of Woburn and Angelina “Snookie” DeLetter of Wilmington and her cherished grandchildren Adam and Ryan Stevens and Charolette Foisy.
