Carmella Zadonowicz

Carmella was a generous and lovely woman but could be known for her stubborn nature. She was also quite particular when it came to keeping things tidy and organized. Everything in Carmella’s home had its place, including her closets which were full of stylish clothing. Her great sense of style also shown through in her walls. With a love of bright colors, Carmella’s walls were painted beautiful bright hues of Purple, Yellow, and Pink. Carmella always tried to stay busy. She loved to go on road trips despite never driving or venturing too far. Carmella also loved her chances to travel a bit farther from home like her cruise to Mexico or her flight to Arizona to see her son, Kevin. However, Carmella’s favorite pastime was baking. Carmella could always be found making cookies, coffee cakes, or just experimenting with baking. Carmella also had a great sense of humor to match her style, especially when it came to her family. When Kevin was in High School, Carmella and her husband, the late Albert, went to Cincinnati for a weekend. While his parents were gone, Kevin and his friends took all the meat from the fridge and placed it in the snow so they could fill the fridge with alcohol. When Carmella and Albert came home early, Carmella seemed to shrug it off and have a drink with the kids while Albert went nuts. Spending time with her family was very important to her whether it was chasing each other around the house or just sitting and watching silent movies. Carmella will truly be missed and remembered for her great sense of style, stellar baking skills, and the kindness of her heart.
