Carol (Armstrong) Sargent, a resident of Darien, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 21.
She is survived by her loving husband, Scott Sargent and a son, Timothy Sargent.
Born on May 18, 1958, Carol grew up in Ridgefield and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Central Connecticut State University in 1980 with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education.
She joined the Children’s Learning Centers of Fairfield County in 1981 as a head teacher and worked her way up to director of school readiness programs.
She enjoyed working as the director of the Children’s Learning Center in Stamford for 36 years just as much as she enjoyed watching the New England Patriots.
In addition to her husband and son, she is survived by her two brothers and her sister-in-laws: Billy and Christine Armstrong from Stamford and David and Cheryl Armstrong from Redding; her sister, Laura Armstrong from Auburn, Ca.; her brother-in-law, John Allen; and four nieces and nephews.
