Carol Berenson, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and educator, passed away peacefully on September 28, 2021.
Carol was an educator for nearly 50 years, over 40 of which were spent in Lexington Public Schools, her favorite being her 35 years spent teaching kindergarten at Estabrook. Always remembered for her radiant smile, sharp wit, leadership and mentorship, and of course her impeccable fashion and high heels, she leaves an incredible legacy through all of the children she reached.
She is survived by her husband Sheldon Berenson, daughter Felicia Berenson-Reinhardt, son-in-law Matthew Reinhardt, and granddaughter Charlotte; sister Linda Rosenberg and niece Suzanne Rosenberg; as well as brother-in-law Gerald Berenson and his family.
Services will be held at Sharon Memorial Park, 40 Dedham St., Sharon, MA on Friday, October 1 at 10:45am.
Visiting hours will be held at the Berenson residence, after the service Friday, October 1, and Saturday, October 2 from 11-5pm. Expressions of sympathy may be donated in Carol’s name to:

I am heartbroken to hear Carol has passed on. Dr. B brought sunshine and smiles to Estabrook each day, and her reach with students, staff and families has spanned over 45 years. I will miss her fashion and elegance gracing the halls. Carol has lived such a beautiful life, and I’m so grateful to have known her. When she spoke of her daughter and her grandchild, there was a sparkle in her eye like nothing else. I am inspired by Dr. B’s never ending thirst for growth, the warmth she held for the children in her care, and her superhuman ability to wear high heels, every single day. Carol…..Estabrook won’t be the same without you.

Our family is extremely saddened by Dr. Berenson’s passing. Both of my girls (now age 8 and 9) were very fortunate to have this wonderful, inspiring and warm human being as their kindergarten teacher. Her wisdom and experience were invaluable to parents of youngsters. This is a huge loss for the Lexington and especially Estabrook community. Our heartfelt condolences to the Berenson family and everyone who loved her.

Our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Dr. Berenson. Our family was so saddened to hear of her passing. My daughters (now 14 and 17) were blessed to have her for Kindergarten. She was a wonderful teacher and one of their favorites and most memorable. As a parent, she had a way of making you feel that your children were in the best of hands with her classroom. We will always remember her as an amazing teacher with a incomparable wealth of knowledge, a kind heart and timeless sense of style. She will truly be missed.
