Visitation at Funeral Home
Obituary of Carol J. Senatore
Carol J. Senatore, 71, of Flanders, NJ passed away peacefully on Monday October 14, 2019 at home surrounded by her family. Carol was born on December 23, 1947 in Bronx, NY to the late Victor and Claire Aliprando and spent her childhood in Mount Vernon, NY. She graduated from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in White Plains, NY and then earned an associate degree from the Katharine Gibbs School. Carol worked at IBM for five years in New York City as Executive Secretary and continued her career later in life as a Paralegal Assistant/Office Manager for various Law Firms. She lived in East Hanover, NJ for thirty-seven years before moving to the Regency Community in Flanders two years ago. Carol was a very active and social person. She treasured spending time with friends, particularly shopping at Home Goods and other boutiques as she decorated her home for special occasions and holidays. Carol and Bob enjoyed participating in many activities and events at the Regency Clubhouse and got a kick out of playing in the bocce ball tournaments. She loved playing golf as well as spending time on the beautiful beaches in Florida. Nevertheless, the light of her life were her grandchildren. She loved to play Nok Hockey, ping pong, Jenga, and many other games with them. She cherished seeing the smiles on their faces, especially when they participated in any of their many activities. Carol was a hero to her family and “the glue” that held everyone together. Carol was someone when you met her that her warmth just embraced you.
She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 50 years, Bob Senatore; two daughters, Debbie Blunt and her husband Jeremy, and Trisha Michael and her husband Darrin; four grandchildren, Nicholas and Katelyn Blunt, and Brooke and Aubrey Michael; adoring brother, Victor Aliprando and his wife Faith, and sister Diane Embrey and her husband Robert; warm-hearted brother-in-law, Michael Senatore and his wife Joanne; and many more loving family members and friends.
