Most recently, Carol was a resident at Broadmeadow Cadia in Middletown until her passing.

She enjoyed the “Jersey Shore”, weekends in New York and shopping.  She was a sweet woman with a dry wit who will be missed by all who knew her.

5 Condolences for Carolyn “Carol” Mellone

  • Stephanie & Russ, sorry for your loss. I understand that the past several months and longer have been difficult in dealing with your Mom’s condition. I know that you always had her best interest first. It was difficult knowing how she used to be and then watching as her liveliness faded as her medical issues slowly took that away . I do have many fond memories of your Mom and our family get together’s. That is what I will take forward and hope that you can too. My deepest sympathies as I know you had a very caring relationship with your parents and she will be missed.

    Sincerely,
    Denice Baker
