Tribute & Message From The Family

Carol Cacace McGlone of Mt. Vernon, NY, passed away peacefully at home on August 22, 2020. Formerly of New Rochelle and Mamaroneck, she was born on October 8, 1939, in Astoria, Queens, to Milada (Mildred) and Giouse (Jess) Cacace. She graduated from Bryant High School at the age of 16 before going to work. She met her would-be husband, William McGlone, at Shepherd's Farm and they married two years later, in 1959. They lived in Mamaroneck and had 3 children. Carol earned a B.A. in psychology and special education from Iona College in 1977, followed by a Masters degree from Columbia Teachers College. She enjoyed her work as a special education teacher in New York City for over 20 years.

Always active, Carol loved playing tennis, taking classes, and attending theatre. She loved the ocean and New York City. She was an active member of LIRIC (Learning in Retirement at Iona College), Sing Your Heart Out, Bronxville Seniors, and was on the welcoming committee at the Wartburg community, where she enjoyed living for the past 4 years. She enjoyed travelling with friends and family. One memorable trip was in 2015 to her grandfather's birthplace in Sciacca, Sicily, with all of her children and grandchildren.

Carol was gracious, warm, fun, loving, generous, joyful, and always saw the good in people. She will be remembered for her adventurous spirit and mischievous sense of humor. She was loved by a wide circle of friends and family and will always be in their hearts.

Carol is survived by her son, William (Lisa) McGlone, her daughter, Mary McGlone, and her daughter, Dolores M. (Greg) Berbaum. She will be missed by her 6 grandchildren, Allison, Clare, Andrew, Maria, William, and Peter. She is also survived by her sister Joyce Welt. We will all miss her dearly. She is pre-deceased by her ex-husband William D. McGlone, her sister Joan Cacace, and her brother James Cacace. A virtual Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020, 10AM.

" I will miss Carol so much. She was such a good friend and a role model for how to cope with life's adversities with grace and humor. She spoke so often of her love for her children and grandchildren. Thank you for making it possible for us to participate in her virtual memorial." Vera Salter New Rochelle NY

I have loved this woman with all my heart and soul...She taught me how to tie my shoes, how to ride a bike, how to make spaghetti sauce, and how to get stains out. She taught me how to laugh without limits, how to cry, how to make friends, and how to see the world through the eyes of those less fortunate. She taught me to be generous and to accept everyone for who they are. She taught me to be generous with my heart and she taught me how to find beauty in every single morning. And now she has taught me how to die with grace and dignity and peace. A few days before she died, she said to me "Love makes everything easier, except leaving".

Carol touched so many people over the years and made a difference in this world. We will always remember her happy disposition, fun-loving personality, and big beautiful smile. Sending love to all of the McGlones.

I will always remember your happy smile, Carol, and all our "comments" as we were Ministers at CNR's Sunday Mass. Please say hi to Doug, to the Ursulines who went before us, and our friends from the happier days---
