Caroline was born September 22, 1940, in Brooklyn, New York, to the late Paul Emanuel and Adele Miller Cheuvront. She was also preceded in death by her sister, Dolores Acker, and her brothers, George Cheuvront, Paul Cheuvront, and Robert Cheuvront.
She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Anthony Ronald Lamicella, Sr.; her daughters, Carolyn Helen Rose and Mariann Adele Kalinski; her sons, Anthony Ronald Lamicella, Jr., Joseph George Lamicella, and John Paul Lamicella; her sister, June H. Long; her eleven grandchildren, Nicholas, Bill, Chris, Jackie, Geanna, Nikko, J.R., Austin, Evan, A.J., and Andrea; and eight great-grandchildren.
While a young teenager in Brooklyn, she met the love of her life who quickly swept her off her feet. They were married on January 10, 1959, raised 5 children, and eventually settled in Northern NJ. She was employed at Ramsey Outdoor Store for over 20 years. She commuted to work for years in a giant red Ford F-350 where no inclement weather could keep her from work! She was well respected in her role and loved by all customers she encountered befriending many of them over the years. She was rewarded as a top saleswoman with a memorable trip to Las Vegas.
She loved family gatherings and Holiday dinners where she was famous for her baked ziti and mashed potatoes. No one ever left hungry! She enjoyed TV, amongst her favorite shows were the Honeymooners, the Flintstones, and Wheel of Fortune.
She loved watching birds but had a special love for Elephants which included an expansive collection of all shapes and sizes from all over the world! Some of her favorite foods were shrimp and lobster sauce and vegetable stromboli and calzone from Dino’s pizzeria where she was affectionally known as ‘Carolina’. To satisfy her sweet tooth, her nightly treat was waffles and ice cream topped with whip cream!
She also enjoyed boating on Lake Hopatcong with family and grandkids. Her love of music was vast, but she was particularly fond of country music. Her all-time favorite song was by John Denver, ‘Take me Home, Country Roads’.
She was a gentle, compassionate, and kind soul, who always saw the goodness in people. She will be deeply missed and remembered by all who knew and loved her.
