It's with profound sadness we announce the passing of Carol, our loving and devoted mother and friend to all whose lives she touched, on July 11th, 2021. Born in Brooklyn, New York on March 29th, 1944, she was the daughter of the late Ralph and Emma (Shuba) Cioffi. Predeceased by her husband of 46 years, Anthony Basilicato and daughter, Christine Anzevino, Carol leaves behind two daughters, Carolyn and her husband Christopher Stracco and Michelle and her husband Timothy McCarthy. Also, survived by her three grandchildren, John, Michael and Emma. Carol found immense pride and joy in raising her family and creating a loving home. Her dedication to her husband, daughters and grandchildren was inspirational. Carol's most cherished moments were spent with her grandchildren. Over the years she never missed a piano or dance recital, soccer or basketball game or theatre production that involved her grandchildren. She was John, Michael and Emma's proudest supporter and loved being deeply involved in their lives and watching them grow up. Always the beacon of strength for her family, Carol will be remembered for her dedication to family and friends. She created countless memories, often around her dining room table, laughing and sharing delicious meals that she prepared as a symbol of love for those around her.
