Carolynne M. Beck * June 16, 2022

Funeral home Hopkinton NH


SALISBURY, NH:  Carolynne M. Beck, age 64, passed away on Thursday, June 16, 2022, at the Jack Byrne Center for Palliative and Hospice care with her family by her side, after a period of declining health.

Carolynne, “Lynne”, was born in Brighton, MA on June 4, 1958, to Kenneth W. Anderson and Carol M. (Connolly) Anderson.  Lynne graduated from Hopkinton High School in 1976.  She graduated from Hesser College with her Associate’s Degree in Court Reporting, and became a freelance court reporter throughout NH. 

Lynne met her husband, Jerry, as students at Hopkinton High School.  Married for 42 years, together, they had four children.  Lynne loved her family and went above and beyond to make sure her kids were happy and healthy.  Not only did she make sure her own children were cared for, but she was known as a “second mom” to many of the neighborhood kids. 

Along with her family, Lynne loved animals. Throughout her life she had an assortment of pets. It seemed as though animals found their way to her. She adored her dog Sadie in her younger years and most recently, her Basset Hound, Red.

Lynne loved spending time at the ocean. She made sure to plan many ocean trips with her family every summer. Lynne also enjoyed spending time in her garden, having family cookouts, nights by the firepit, a game of scrabble and sitting by her pool. She was truly a beautiful and vibrant person who was always up for anything.

Lynne was a true source of strength and character. She was always someone people could go to for anything. She will be greatly missed. 

Lynne was predeceased by her parents, Kenneth W. Anderson and Carol Connolly Anderson of Contoocook, NH, and her brother Kenny Anderson.

Lynne is survived by four children, Nathan Beck of Pembroke, NH, Brandon Beck of Salisbury, NH and his girlfriend Amanda, Christian Beck of Weare, NH and his wife Krista; Shayna Beck of Gilmanton NH and her boyfriend Dan, and three grandchildren, Mason, Brandon and Nathan. 

Lynne is also survived by four siblings, Leslie Anderson-Joyce of Milford, MA, Maribeth Schonberg of Ocala, FL and her husband Steve,  Chris Anderson of Rollinsford, NH and Steve Anderson of Candia, NH and his wife Kirstie. 

A private burial at the convenience of the family will be held.   For more information, visit
