Carol and I became family when her daughter, Jennifer, and my son, Steve, married. Her sweet, loving, and gentle spirit were evident from the start. We had not known each other long, yet she welcomed me into her home as though we had been friends for years. We enjoyed going out to lunch, and "venti" coffees as well as sharing our life stories. Carol, I will miss you and will cherish our friendship always.
Carol was our aunt and one of the kindest and most generous people we knew. She was so thoughtful and she ended all our conversations with "Auntie loves you all", which made us all smile. She was also quite talented at sewing and crafting, and we cherish the beautiful quilts she made for both our daughters.
It was easy to see just how much she loved her family and how proud she was of her adorable grandkids. Carol will be missed immensely by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. She had a genuine smile that lit up a room. We love you Auntie and you will be in hearts forever.
I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs Alessandro sounds an amazing lady who lived life to the full, loved life and her family. May you rest in peace,
I met Carol over 30 yes ago..and her and Glenn were stationed at Norton AFB and they were managers over the apt. Complex Christina. was still lil andCarol was pregnant with Jennifer. Carol was like a second mom to my daughter Kelly. She was the sweetest lady. I will miss her so much.she would keep me company on the computer on nights I couldn't sleep because I was sick from my chemo that day and we would play a game. Now she's resting with the Angels.I will miss youm
I remember Carol in my 3rd grade class. She frequently wore her hair in high pig tails. She almost always had a smile on her face.
Our class was in a quonset hut. That year our teacher's husband was lost in a small plane accident and President Kennedy was assasinated. I believe that spring was the big earthquake. We all had to get the tb test and polio vaccine. We were off of school for a few days.
I used to sell her mom Girl Scout Cookies. Carol and Sharon would get their money out of their piggy banks!
We road the same school bus and remained in school together until she moved to CO.
It was great to see her several years ago when she came to AK for a visit. A sweet, compassionate and thoughtful soul.
Her family will have so many memories to help them thru this time of separation. They are indeed fortunate to have been in her life!
