• Carol Jean Pipito became an Angel on January 15, 2024. Carol was born on December 30, 1935 in Brooklyn, NY to parents Catherine and Ed.  She resided in Shirley for the past 65 years. She is survived by her daughter Diane, son-in-law Edward, granddaughter Lisa, Lisa’s husband Michael and great grandchildren Collin, Rylie and Charlotte and her brother Michael Sailer, and several nephews and nieces. She will be meeting her daughter, Lora in heaven.
    Carol enjoyed spending time with her family more than anything. She loved entertaining and celebrating life with family and friends. She opened her home and made everyone feel special. Carol loved the beach. She loved going on vacations with her family every year, expressing that going on the Disney cruise with her daughter, granddaughter and great grandchildren was her favorite.

    She spent her time reading Stuart Wood books and caring for her dog Taco. Warm summer days were spent swimming with her grandchildren in the pool and playing chess, rummikub and backgammon.

    Oma’s three great grandchildren called her every day to read, sing and play their instruments.  She attended every single sport game, concert, karate tournament and performance, as she was their biggest fan and lived for the moments to watch them enjoying life. She ended her daily Facetime chats with her great grandchildren with “I love you to the moon and back and happy dreams.” Her great grandchildren were everything to her and she was everything to them.

    Carol’s memory will continue to live on forever fondly in the hearts of all those who loved her so dearly.
