Carolyn Ann DeLia, known to many as Carole, passed away unexpectedly on May 23, 2024, at the age of 79 in Verona. Carole was born on January 25, 1945, in Newark to the late Mary (DeFronzo) Fabrizio and P. Anthony Fabrizio. She was preceded in death by her caring mother and father, devoted husband Louis Gerald DeLia, and cherished son Jeffrey Louis DeLia.

Carole leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion. She is survived by her loving brother, Edmund Fabrizio (Ed), and his wife Rosanne Fabrizio, who was like a sister to her. Carole’s world revolved around her devoted son Christopher DeLia and his wife Kimberly (Sancho) DeLia. She was a proud grandmother to Audrey DeLia and Mason DeLia, her pride and joy. Carole is also survived by her loving nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews.

Carole’s educational journey included attending Barringer High School class of 1962, and Newark State College (Kean University), graduating in 1966. She had a remarkable career in shaping young minds and teaching children, with the majority of her years spent at the Children’s House, a Montessori school in Verona.

In her free time, Carole enjoyed cooking, gardening, and spending quality time with her family and her very many friends. She was a member of Our Lady of the Lake parish, where she found solace and community.

Services to honor and celebrate Carole’s life will be held at Caggiano Funeral Home, 66 Grove Street, Montclair, on June 2, 2024, from 4 to 8 p.m. for viewing and visitation. The funeral will take place on June 3, 2024, at 10 a.m. at Our Lady of the Lake, 22 Lakeside Ave, Verona. Interment at Glendale Cemetery in Bloomfield.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in Carole’s memory. The compassionate team at Caggiano Funeral Home in Montclair is assisting with the funeral arrangements.

Carole will be deeply missed and forever remembered by all who knew and loved her. To know her love, humor, and selflessness, was to truly love her. May she rest in peace.
