Carole M. Holt, 77, a resident of Jay, passed away, Wednesday, January 8th, at Central Maine Medical Center, surrounded by her entire family. She was born July 5, 1942 in Jay, the daughter of Louis Marchetti and Ida (Gonnella) Marchetti. She graduated from Jay High School in 1960. On November 23, 1963, she married Daniel R. Holt at St. Rose of Lima Church in Jay. They were married 44 years before his passing on June 14, 2007. She worked for Forster Manufacturing in Wilton, the local shoe shops and for Food City in Livermore Falls. Carole loved spending time with her family and always hosted many gatherings at her home, including Christmas Eve with all her traditions. She enjoyed cooking, crafts, knitting, canning and doing ceramics and absolutely loved riding on the back of a Harley. Carole took pride in her exceptional “weedless” garden. She taught her kids to cook all of her traditional Italian dishes. The smell of her sauce simmering from a quarter mile away was common. She loved sharing coffee brandy with her friends, she was so much fun to be around. You could always count on a special handmade gift from her on the holidays. She is survived by her daughters; Leslie Violette and her husband Ed of Benton, Carrie Bannister and her fiancé Leo LaPointe of Sabattus, her son Shawn Holt and his wife Abrey of Livermore, 3 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, 2 great great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
