Karole Angerillo

Karole Angerillo

 

 It is with great sadness in one hand, and jubilant celebration in the other, that I announce the news:

Karole Angerillo has shed her earthly bonds and is now in the everlasting care and love of her savior, Jesus Christ.

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me,though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.   John. 25 -26

 

In the early morning light of April 2, 2020, under the tender care of her Stoney Brooke family staff, and in the company of her daughter, Karole lost her battle with heart and lung disease, just 3 months shy of her 86th birthday.

Over the past year she was blessed with visits, both in person and via video chat, from cherished family and friends from coast to coast. Many times she remarked how wonderful it was that her loved ones came to see her while she was still alive.
