Lauren Ramponi Carroll, a valued citizen of the small-town Brookline, Massachusetts, passed away suddenly. A dazzling light in the neighbourhood was extinguished on September 29, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love and dedication as well as a lasting impression on those who were fortunate enough to have met her. Family, passion, and an unyielding dedication to her community all play a part in Lauren’s narrative.

Preston Bayliss and Collin O’Connor’s mother Lauren was adored by Robert E. O’Connor, Jr. and her two boys. She was the cherished daughter of Preston A. Carroll and Dianne L. Ramponi of Jamaica Plain. Lauren’s life was shaped by the love and support of her family, which included her stepfather, E. Byron Hensley, and his wife Joanne of Marion. She was also a beloved daughter-in-law of Robert E. and his wife Nancy Walsh O’Connor of Brookline. Lauren’s family extended beyond her immediate relatives to include her sister-in-law, Lauren Barnes, and brother-in-law, Brendan O’Connor, both of Brookline. A vast network of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, countless friends, and colleagues all mourn her loss deeply.

One of the defining aspects of Lauren’s life was her unwavering dedication to her family. She was not only a devoted wife and mother but also a beacon of support for her extended family. Her love for her two sons, Preston and Collin, shone brightly in everything she did. She and Robert were the embodiment of a loving, supportive couple, and their love for each other was evident to anyone who had the privilege of being in their company.

Lauren’s passion for fitness and running was a cornerstone of her life. In her youth, she achieved a remarkable feat by winning the State Indoor Championship for hurdles as a junior in high school in 1999. Her athleticism and drive were a source of inspiration to many, showcasing her determination and tenacity. Her commitment to maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle extended to her family, encouraging her children to lead active lives as well.

Beyond her dedication to her family and her athletic achievements, Lauren was deeply committed to her community. She had deep roots in Brookline and was an active participant in numerous local events and school programs. Her presence at these events, whether it was cheering on her children or volunteering her time, was a testament to her unwavering commitment to her community.

Professionally, Lauren was a founding partner of The Montgomery Carroll Group, one of greater Boston’s premier residential real estate sales and marketing teams. Her work in the real estate industry was marked by her professionalism, dedication, and a commitment to delivering exceptional service to her clients. Her contributions to the industry were highly regarded, and she left an indelible mark on the real estate community in Boston.

Lauren’s sudden passing has left a void in the lives of her family, friends, and the community she loved. In these difficult times, her family has reached out for support, creating the Bayliss/O’Connor Education Fund to ensure the future education of her beloved sons. Donations can be made in her memory to the fund, demonstrating the enduring legacy of her commitment to her children’s well-being. A GoFundMe campaign has also been established to provide additional support during this challenging period.

Brendan Sullivan, the organizer of the fundraising page, eloquently captured the profound impact Lauren and Robert had on those around them: “Bobby and Lauren were the loves of each other’s lives, and if you ever spent one second with them, it was abundantly clear. Their love for each other was rivaled only by the love they have for their two sons, Preston and Collin.”

Lauren Ramponi Carroll’s life was a testament to the power of love, family, and community. Her memory will continue to inspire those who knew her, and her legacy of kindness, dedication, and selflessness will forever be etched in the hearts of all who had the privilege of crossing her path.
