Carol A. Kuligowski, of Harrington Delaware died on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Staten Island and resided in Edison before moving to Harrington in 2005.
Carol was one of a kind. She was a woman full of good nature, humor and a zest for life. She loved her family and friends and enjoyed so many things such as art, music, cooking, traveling, crosswords, movies, football, and NASCAR.
Without any formal training, Carol could draw and create anything. She was truly amazing, but
her real strengths were her intelligence and kindness:
how comfortable she could make you feel, her ability to include everyone and being there when you needed her.
Carol had integrity and a strong work ethic. She worked her way up from a teller to an Assistant Vice President at Perth Amboy Savings Institution; while taking courses at the Financial Institute, supporting her family and encouraging and motivating her employees. She set an example of how to be strong and fair.
Unfortunately, Carol did not have the gift of good health. She suffered with several different cancers over thirty years, not once complaining or feeling bitter-only wanting to know what she had to do to get through it. She had a strong faith in God and kept her faith until the end. She knew what was important in life, and for that she will be loved beyond measure.
Carol is the daughter of the late Gennaro and Veronica (nee Baluk) Spiritoso. She is also predeceased by her brothers Thomas and Salvatore Spiritoso and her sister Christine Rosario.
Carol is survived by her husband Robert M. of 57 years, a son Michael R., a daughter Monica A. and a daughter and son in law Michele and Alex Santiago; her two beautiful grandchildren Alexa and Nicholas, who she adored, many nephews, nieces, and many friends.
