Obituary of Carol Lee McCormick


Carol Lee McCormick, age 85, went to be with the Lord on January 18, 2024 in Upstate NY, after an 8-year journey with Alzheimer’s.

She was born in Covington, KY on May 21, 1938, the daughter of Le Roy Clark Cosbey and Margaret Dennard Cosbey.

She survived her second husband, Jerome “Jerry” Gedney McCormick. They worked, lived, laughed, and loved in Farmington and Simsbury, CT along with Sanibel Island, Fort Myers, and The Villages, FL.

Her first marriage was to Richard Herbert Trauth. They were married in Norwood, OH and later moved to Avon, CT.

Carol is survived by her children, Scott Lawrence Trauth, Andrea Lee Bell, and Stephanie Lynn Hitchcock, and by her stepchildren, Kenneth Richey McCormick, Robert John McCormick, and Nancy Jean Roberts, along with her grandchildren Erin Elizabeth Trauth, Timothy Michael Trauth, Madison Jean Trauth, William Andrew Hitchcock, and Lucille Claire McCormick, Anna Haley McCormick, James Bryant McCormick, Sara Jean O’Brien and Daniel McCormick Roberts. She is also survived by one great grandchild, Delaney Trauth.

Carol was an astute businesswoman, first within the real estate industry in CT and later partnering with Jerry to run successful consulting and accounts receivables businesses.

Carol enjoyed walking, tennis, travel, antique refurbishing, decorating, landscaping, crafts, reading, cooking, entertaining, and, above all, serving others. She had a loving heart towards family and friends and will be sorely missed.

A memorial website will be forthcoming on
