Carol was preceded in death by her loving husband David in 2016 as well as her siblings Donna (Piasta) LeChasseur, Edward Piasta and his wife Cheryl, and Kathleen (Graves) Thomas.
Carol was born in Millbury, daughter of Doris (Capiston) and Edward Piasta.
She graduated from Millbury High School and continued to Worcester City Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1969. She worked 50+ years as a Registered Nurse, most of that time spent working in long term care at various facilities in Central MA until her recent retirement from Blair House of Worcester.
Carol worked behind the scenes for her children’s many activities and teams and continued this on to her grandchildren, sewing patches, making costumes, and carting them around town. Carol enjoyed puzzles, sewing, needlepoint and crafting. She especially enjoyed knitting and crochet projects creating beautiful afghans and sweaters. She loved trips to the beach and area casinos to play slots, but she loved nothing more than spending time with her children and grandchildren.
