  • Ed Campitelli October 18, 2021 8:10 pm

    Carol, I loved our long talks and the fond memories that came out of them. I was always amazed at your confidence and initiative. I never knew till today you achieved your Masters degree due to your humility, especially since you were so outgoing. When we would visit Grandmom and Grandpop down Carlisle Rick and I couldn’t wait to run up to ‘Aunt Roses’ to see you. I am in awe of how you raised your son Chris, worked your job, and attained those degrees. And for the past so many years you have been taking care of our favorite aunt Rose as she approached ‘cent anni’. You gave everyone your all and selfishly not much for you but a everlasting legacy that few will ever attain. I will miss you and our calls. I’m glad the last thing I said to you was “I love you”. Rest In Peace.

    ‘Unk’s’ son Eddie.

  • Rev. Shani A. Johnson October 18, 2021 8:20 pm

    I will miss your realness and transparency. This was a hard reality to absorb. However, I am certain you are resting in the arms of Jesus. Rest in eternal peace, dear friend. We shall meet again in that great triumphant morning!

  • Zaida Nogue October 18, 2021 8:22 pm

    Carol was amazing, dedicated, funny and spunky. We laughed often. Chris, you were her world. My heart goes out to you and your family.

    Carol, you will be laughing at me from heaven.

    On behalf of the students and staff of the Gateway to College program, I say THANK YOU Carol,. May the angels welcome you with open arms now that your earthly mission is complete.
    Rest In Peace. Lady Carol.

  • Melanie October 19, 2021 1:38 pm

    Thanks for being not only a wonderful coworker but a great friend. I will miss going out to the high schools together and always having a good laugh with you. You were always so positive and upbeat no matter what and everyone loved to be around you. I remember laughing with you not long ago about zoom and you having to call in because you couldn’t get the camera to work.
    I know how special your son was to you and I pray for his strength so that he can get through this difficult time. I have a new guardian angel to pray to. Miss you xoxo May you rest in peace.
    Your friend,

  • Jenel Call October 19, 2021 1:53 pm

    I want to first express my condolences to Chris and the rest of Carol’s family and friends. I am so sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. As her mother’s social worker I saw how selfless and amazing she was over the years as a caregiver to her mother. I saw a woman who was deeply devoted to her son, and caring for her mother. It was inspirational to see the love, kindness and respect in which she cared for her mother over my 11 years working with her. As a person Carol was funny, smart, and always so much fun to be around. May God rest your soul Carol. You were beautiful inside and out.

  • Mary R. Meier October 19, 2021 7:23 pm

    We lost an Angel. Carol was a wonderful woman. Full of life and energy. Raised a wonderful son. Together they cared for Rose. Happy to call her my friend. Rest in peace Carol. You will be missed.

  • Fran October 19, 2021 10:00 pm

    Carol our funny friend and neighbor, what a special person you were,,you raised a handsome,respectful, loving, kind caring son, you took the best care of your beautiful mom like no one else! I’ll miss you 😘 in the mornings, getting ready for your runs. The world lost a beautiful woman, RIP and prayers to your entire family🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻💗💔

  • Melinda Campitelli Williams October 20, 2021 2:33 am

    You were truly one-of-kind. I feel blessed that we came together later in our lives to chat about our aging mothers, growing sons, and the angst of life.
    There are people in life who are a burst of energy, effervescent, and glowing. That was you. You truly made the world a better place, especially as it pertained to your wonderful son Chris, your beautiful mother Rose, your beloved fiancée Gene, or your dear brother Bobby. Plus, all of your students, fellow academia colleagues, friends, and neighbors .
    To me, Sunday mornings at 4:00 a.m. will never be the same. I’d catch you before you started your daily routine of bathing and feeding Aunt Rose, going for your two-mile run, then off to the aisles of Shop Rite.
    I will miss you so much, you have no idea. I feel like I’ve been in suspended animation this past week. I keep wanting to pick up the phone and tell you all about all this craziness.
    But I cannot.
    Sending you my love and prayers tonight, dear cousin. Give our loved ones in Heaven a kiss for me. May the Good Lord keep you in the hollow of his hand.

  • Yvonne Kilson October 20, 2021 3:04 am

    My condolences to Chris and the Rosarto family. I thank God for placing Carol in my life. We shared offices working closely together for over 10 years and regularly for the balance of years. Carol was one of the most caring, sweet and loving humans I knew. She LOVED her son Chris more than anyone! He is now an amazing young man and she would be so proud, Carol was also a dedicated, loving daughter. She was so funny and full of energy, always moving faster than light. Carol loved God and she loved to read and run in the morning. She was committed to her job and to her students. She gave 120% of herself to help them day in and out. I will miss her voice, our prayers together and our jokes. My heart hurts that she’s out of my life but she’s in the better place in Jesus’s loving arms. Praying for Chris and the family.🙏🏼🥰🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼

  • Yvonne Kilson October 20, 2021 3:16 am

  • Keith Sayles October 21, 2021 6:10 pm

    Rest well Carol!! You were loved and will stay in our hearts always!!

  • Gene Rawlings October 22, 2021 12:42 am

    My dear Carol, reminiscing about all the many good times we shared when we could go out to various stores and malls. A time when we could get a caregiver for your mother on the weekends. We would walk hand in hand, sometimes a passerby would stop us and say how it was nice to see adults seemingly so in love. We would smile and thank them, but not until I would spin Carol around and down with a whopping kiss. We laughed and went our way.
    Other occasions we would go to my place and watch comedy movies, as we both loved to laugh. I always had a unique menu prepared, which I made or previously purchased. She always enjoyed and ate everything. We often shared a glass of wine neither one of us were much into drinking.

    When a caregiving was hard to find, we spent time at Carol’s home with me doing things I knew she needed or wanted, but never asking for my help. I volunteered with no strings attached. What a joyous labor of love I gave to my beautiful lady numerous times. I hope I made her life a little better and safer, as she so deserved all the help she could get with so much going on in her
    life. I could go on forever and still have much to say and regret not saying it, but she knew how much i loved her. That’s all that mattered, as I asked her many times, as she so willingly obliged, “just let me Love you”. Good night honey bun. I love you ❤🥰 xoxo


  • Gene Rawlings October 25, 2021 12:21 pm

    Happy birthday honey. I miss you every minute of the day. I love you honey. Xoxo 🥰❤

  • Ashley Moorman October 27, 2021 6:26 pm

    I love you miss carol words can’t describe you now you at peace . I going make your proud 😊

  • Gene Rawlings October 29, 2021 2:11 am

    My precious Carol
    Although the 1st phase of our earthly and personal relationship ended recently, our 2nd phase is beginning through a Journal given to me by your loving cousin Melinda and her husband Bob. They are just 2 of your many family members that have welcomed me into your remarkable family and comforted me during these difficult times, eventhough they were grieving as well.

    This 2nd phase of our relationship I’ll be communicating with you with words I’ll be writing in the Journal, in which will be about my life without you, our times together and my love and devotion to you. I know you will respond to my writings in someway, shape or form.

    This 2nd phase will last until the 3rd and final phase, at which time we’ll be together again. I love you with all my heart and soul and will miss you so much until that time.

    Rest In peace my beautiful lady xoxo ❤

  • Gloria Conti November 24, 2021 4:48 pm

  • Peaches December 30, 2021 10:42 pm

    Chris so sorry for your loss. Mom Idolize You. I’ve known her for years and would bump into her now and then. She always made me laugh and when i would ask how you were she would glow So very sorry.

  • Gene January 1, 2022 11:42 am

    Happy new year honey, but a sad one without you. More than half way through my first journal of my life with you and what it has been like without you. I have not missed a day to write to you snce your beautiful cousin Melinda and her husband Bob gifted me the journal that keeps our love alive. What a beautiful love story that is turning out to be. It may become a book to memorize our lives that God had allowed our paths to cross. Continue to rest in peace my love as you know all is in His hands xoxo

  • Luis Arzan October 14, 2022 3:33 am
