It is with great sadness to share that Karen Mello, who has served as Assistant Assessor here at the Town Hall for the last 28 years, passed away on September 23rd after a courageous battle with cancer. She leaves behind a daughter, Lisa Menard, and her partner in life, Dennis Richard.
Per Karen’s request, there will be no memorial service, but a celebration of Karen's life and service to the town of Freetown will be held on Saturday, October 12th at 11am at the Lakeville Eagles Club (217 County Road, Lakeville). There will be a light lunch and cash bar, and donations will be accepted for the Town Hall's annual holiday food drive, which will be officially renamed in Karen's honor later this year.
Karen will be greatly missed. Everyone here at the Town Hall would like to express our deepest condolences to Karen's family and loved ones.
