North Andover, MA — Carol Ann Dangora McInnis, 75, of Bonita Springs, FL, and Brewster, MA, formerly a long-time resident of North Andover, passed away peacefully January 3, 2013, surrounded by her husband and daughters overlooking her beloved Cape Cod Bay.
Carol was born on March 1, 1937 in Boston to the late James W. and Mary (Flaherty) Dangora. She was raised in Medford, MA, graduated from St. Clement’s High School, Somerville, MA, and earned Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Salem State College. In addition to raising four daughters, Carol enjoyed a career in teaching and spent many years working with her husband at McInnis Law Offices.
Carol had a passion for playing bridge with her many close friends in North Andover and Florida, golfing and traveling with her husband, and reading good books. Her greatest joy, however, was spending summers on the Brewster beaches with her family.
She is survived by her much-loved and devoted family: her husband of 51 years, Atty. James J. McInnis, and her daughters and their husbands, Atty. Marybeth McInnis (Stephen Boucher), of North Andover, Atty. Susan M. Leonard (James), of London, U.K., Kristen M. Clark (John), of Cranford, NJ, and Carolyn M.
