Obituary of Carole A. Farrell

Carole Alice Farrell, formally of Garnerville, NY, passed away peacefully with family by her side on February 4, after a brief illness. She was 83.


Carole was born on April 18, 1939 in New York City to parents Alfred and Helen (Zwernemann) Loomer. Carole graduated in 1957 from Mother Cabrini High School in Washington Heights. After high school she took a position with the New York Telephone Company. Her daily walks to work brought her past a firehouse on 181st Street in Manhattan, where she would catch the attention of her future husband, Ray.

They married February 27, 1960. In 1966 these two young city kids moved to Garnerville, NY, a place they called home for more than 55 years. Carole and Ray raised 5 sons; Raymond Jr., David, Dennis, Michael, and Andrew.


Carole enjoyed dancing, bowling, knitting, crocheting, ceramics, reading and family gatherings. Carole was predeceased by her husband Ray (62 years of marriage) and sons David and Dennis.


She is survived by her sons Raymond Jr. (Eileen), Michael (Marta), Andrew, daughter-in-law Lori (Dennis); grandchildren Amy (Michael) Quinn, Dennis, Suzanne, Betsy, Kathleen, Kelsey, Colleen, Todd (Emily) Sutherland, Michael Sutherland, great-grandchildren; Declan, Brigid, Garrett, Ava, and Cameron.


She is also survived by her sisters Helen (Ed) Murray, Madeline Quinn, and brother-in-law John Farrell, along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews.
