When I googled her name, I was hoping to find where she is now, not her obituary. Scarsy was a friend and housemate in her freshman/my sophomore year at Albany State. Partridge House. That was 1961-62. We did have fun.

I didn’t know Carole but I wanted to express my sorrow for your loss and joy for the life she lived with your family and y’all with her. She sounds like a strong Scarsella, which I know something about, being married to a Scarsella whose father’s generation grew up in the Albany area.

I did not know Carol but I sure wish I did.
Godspeed to the family now and in the days ahead. I hope my obituary is written similar to hers what a hoot she must have been.
Rest in peace.

I didn't know Carole, but after reading her obituary I wish I had! I appreciate the good belly laugh it provided, especial during these frustrating and uncertain times. Even though I'm sure this is a sad time for Carole's friends and family, I imagine they are finding great comfort in sharing their happy memories with you. My deepest sympathies them all.

I didn't know Carol but through our love of Stephen King, slot machines, and FB games, I'm sure we would have have been friends. Praying for peace for your family and friends Carole.

Carole and I had many memories. McKinley Pto Boys Association and HRBlock. We had lots of laughs and loved doing things for our kids. Now you’re with Joanne Paturzo probably rounding up a Pto. God bless you. Norma and Remo sorry for your loss. She lived for her kids.
