YONKERS, N.Y. -- Lifelong Yonkers resident Caroline "Carrie" D'Angelo died on Sunday, Jan. 24. She was 89.
She was a daughter of Achilles and Bridget Chiarilli.
D'Angelo was a devoted and active member of St. Bartholomew's Parish, to which she belonged for 60 years. She served the parish in many roles, including as a lector at Mass, working in the rectory office and as a former president of the Rosary Altar Society. She also volunteered as a school lunch mother, even long after her own children were grown.
She also spent some time in the spotlight as a member of Broadway at St. Bart's, a community theater group. Perhaps her favorite role was Santa Claus, donning the red suit and delighting the people of St. Bart's for many years.
She was predeceased by her husband, Victor.
D'Angelo is survived by her children, Susan Vellucci of Wappingers Falls, Carolyn D'Angelo of Westchester and Victor D'Angelo Jr. of Yonkers; grandchildren Michelle Vames, Melissa Magnani, Frederic Vellucci, Dominic Vellucci, and Victor D'Angelo III; great-grandchildren Peter, Freddy, Theo, Katie, Rocco and Nicholas; siblings Mary Jacone of Fishkill, Anthony Chiarilli of Laguna Woods, California, and Lorraine DeMasi of New Rochelle.
Visiting hours will be from 2-8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 29, at the Sinatra Memorial Home, 601 Yonkers Ave., in Yonkers.
A Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 30, at St. Bartholomew Church, in Yonkers. Burial at St. Joseph's Cemetery will immediately follow.
