Carol Fabrizio, loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, departed her family on Friday, Oct. 30, a month past her 80th birthday.
Carol was born on Sept. 13, 1940 in The Bronx, New York, She moved to Florida, where she married her husband, Ron, and started a family that would eventually include six children, eight grandchildren and one great grandchild. She and Ron were married for 61 years.
Family was Carol’s life and joy. She took care of everyone and made it look easy, even when it wasn’t, and she never got upset about the little things. In fact, some of her favorite things were simple pleasures like Mickey Mouse pajamas and watching the birds toil in the birdbath in the backyard. She was a fabulous cook who made her family smile with her homemade pizza, apple pie and many other dishes.
Carol was a devout Catholic and a true example of the love of Jesus Christ. She attended Sacred Heart Church in Pinellas Park and loved getting together with friends after Mass at Panera Bread. She was charitable and kind and volunteered her time by cleaning the church. She also worked for many years and retired from Kash n’ Karry grocery stores.
Carol is preceded in death by son, Gregory. She is survived by husband Ron, sons Paul (Lourdes Lulu), Steven and Chris; daughters Therese (Mike) and Debra; grandchildren Gregory Jr., Timothy, Johnathon, Megan, Kara, Katelynn, Jon Paul and Nina; and great grandchild Gianna.
