Evelyn DeCarlo Harriman of Estero, Fla. passed away February 21, 2017 peacefully after a long illness at the Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers, Florida.
She was born August 17, 1940 at the Hale Hospital in Haverhill, Mass. to Laura Damiano DeCarlo and Emilio William DeCarlo. Her parents divorced when she was very young and she was raised by her mother and her extended Damiano family on Bartlett Street in Haverhill. She became a roller skater in her early teens at Skateland, Haverhill. where she met her future husband, Harold Harriman of Groveland. They eventually became partners in competitive roller dance skating and competed in the National meet in Oakland, California in 1957. After their marriage in 1957 they lived in Groveland, Mass. and then moved to Marstons Mills on Cape Cod, Mass. in 1967 where they raised their three daughters, Robynne Thomas (David), Milissa Harriman MacCormick (Thomas), both of Sandwich, Mass. and Vikki Harriman Blanchard (Ray) of Fayette, Maine. She was a wonderfully loving, considerate and nurturing wife, mother, grandmother and friend to so very many people.
