I am so sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. Carol and I met when she worked in the cafeteria at the Sayreville upper elementary school. We were friends ever since. She was such a kind beautiful person. Even after she left there, we continued to meet for lunch with some other friends. She would always reach out to see how everyone was doing. She will truly be missed. Such a good soul. She was so proud of her family. She would talk about them all the time with us. My deepest condolences.

This was a lovely service with much love shared for all. Carol's beautiful sense of giving and spreading of love was so profound and was evident in the hearts of her children for all to see. She was so proud of them and her grandchildren. Carol cared about all people and always put their well-being before her own. She would have been humbled by the kind words spoken of her as a mother and grandmother. She was selfless to the end and she has earned her place in heaven with her husband, Scott, whom she loved so dearly. I will always miss her exuberant greeting, "Hi Cuz" and ending--love you, Me. Love Always, Mary Ann

My heart goes out to the entire Irwin family. When our kids were growing up, we wouldn't miss a softball game for anything! And the 3 of us (Carol, Judy and I) would be the biggest 'fans' at ours girls games. We laughed and bonded at each game so beautifully. Those are the memories I will cherish forever! God bless Carol and may she forever rest in peace!
