Ralph) DeCandia, Beth (George) Woods, Mary (John) Sottile, Jeanne Calderone, Joseph (Renée) Turcott, Margaret (Rich) Ohnikian and Frances (Lenny) Medico.

Carol had the blessing of loving each of her great-grandchildren, Collin, Luke, Evan, and Emma, Vivian, Killian, Edith and Thea, Cameron, Liam, Gianna, Ethan and was looking forward to another great-grandchild due to arrive in November. She will be watching over them all.  

Carol and her family were stationed coast-to-coast while in the Air Force. They settled in Tenafly, NJ in 1967 and remained there for 40 years. They were parishioners at Our Lady of Mount Carmel R. C. Church in Tenafly until they moved to Cedar Crest in Pompton Plains, NJ in 2005. Carol enjoyed spending time with her family, reading, shopping, doing puzzles and going on cruises. She enjoyed her summer vacations in Tanglwood Lakes, PA and spending many winters in Delray Beach, FL. Carol was devoted to the Blessed Mother and found strength in praying the Holy Rosary. Carol will be deeply missed by all who loved her.
