Carol DiGennaro

May 3, 1939 — February 23, 2021

Carol Lykes DiGennaro passed away at home surrounded by all her children on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.

Carol was born in the little yellow house on East Freehold Road in Freehold, New Jersey on May 3, 1939.  She was the oldest daughter of six children to Woodrow Lykes and Betty Anderson.  Carol is predeceased by her husband, Neal DiGennaro; her brothers Bruce and Dennis; her granddaughter, Rebecca.  Carol is survived by two brothers, Robert and Marvin, and a sister, Marlene.

Carol retired from the Athens City School System, Tennessee, as a Special Education Teacher Assistant.  Her students brought her such joy.

Carol was the open-hearted mother to seven children.  Her eldest daughter, Tammy, is married to Jim Setzer, with two grandchildren: Erin, Zach and wife Chelsea;  and beloved great granddaughter, Haley.

Daughter Mary Theresa, married to Joseph Christopher Seig (1965-2017) with six grandchildren: J.C., Emily, Gerard, Rebecca, Benjamin, and Nathaniel.

Daughter Florence, married to Roland Scott, with three grandchildren: Luke, Grace, and Hope.

Son Salvatore DiGennaro, married to Wendy, with two grandchildren: Lou and Neil.

Daughter Anne Marie, married to Howey, with three grandchildren: Jessica and spouse, Erica, with great grandchild, Sexton; Justin and wife, Cassandra, expecting their first child this year; and Anjela.

Daughter Sharon DiGennaro is mother of Carol’s granddaughter, Taylor.

Daughter Bernadette, married to Akram Kuhail, with four grandchildren: Ramsey, and his wife Brittani, and their two great grandchildren, Isabella and Remington;  Mohammad, Ashraf and Aiyah.

In lieu of a memorial service or flowers, Carol requested that you make donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, or American Heart Association, or a charity of your choice.  She loved flowers, so if you would like to send some, send flowers to someone that you love.

Carol was like Springtime. Tender and delicate like a fresh new flower.  Warm and comforting like a sundrenched afternoon.  Gentle as a brilliant butterfly, softly spreading love to all of her blooms - diligently, quietly helping us become whole.  Like Spring, she has now become new, as she enters this divine season of pure unconditional love.

We love and miss you Mom!
