Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Carmen D. (Rivera) Fage, 74, of Leominster, died Saturday, April 30th, after losing her battle to dementia.

Carmen was born July 22, 1947, in Puerto Rico, daughter of Carmen Rivera and the late Salvador Rivera. She was a member of the Leominster Central Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She was an entrepreneur, working over the years on various projects and businesses. Most importantly, she worked alongside her husband, Rick, at Rick’s Auto Inc. in Sterling while also working as a representative for Nature's Sunshine, Avon, Amway and Color Me Beautiful. Carmen was very knowledgeable as an herbalist, and ran a natural food co-op out of her home. All of these business endeavors were also her way of connecting with and helping those in need. Her name is synonymous with caregiving. Whether family, friends or strangers, she never shied away from taking care of people but her family was her world. Carmen was a beautiful, generous, caring, loving, selfless daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend and caregiver.

Besides her mother, Carmen Rivera of Leominster, she leaves her husband of 54 years, Rick Fage; her children, Lisa Gjeltema and fiancé, Ron Bray of Leominster, Lindy Sauls of Leominster, Sarita Fage and wife Diana of Sterling and Rosanna Glidden and husband Jesse of Fitchburg; grandchildren, Daniel Fenner and wife Ashley, Nadia Kearchner, Aidan Glidden, Jordyn Fage and Journey Fage; great grandchildren, Chace, Blaine and Ember Fenner; brother, Modesto Rivera of Leominster; and sister, Elva Guile and husband Gordon of Fitchburg.
