Carol Reilly, age 82 of Shelton, passed away peacefully on Sunday March 28, 2021 in Griffin Hospital. She was the devoted wife of the late William T. Reilly. She was born in Waterbury on Oct 6, 1938, daughter of the late Bernadine McKenna Gaugler and was a long time Shelton resident. Carol was employed for many years with Aetna Insurance before her retirement. Carol loved gardening and baking. She was also a lifelong member of the Czecho Club, and she enjoyed playing pool. Carol enjoyed trips to the casino and watching the UConn Women’s basketball games.
She is the beloved mother of six daughters, Kathy and Fred Palumbo, Lori and Russ Blankenship, Susan and the late Vincent LaCour, Trish and Chris Bogen, Kelly Botti and Eric Testani, Carolyn and Cliff Forte. She is also survived by Eighteen grandchildren. She was predeceased by two sisters Jeannette Emmons and Patricia Gaugler.
We would like to thank the staff at Griffin Hospital and Hospice for their wonderful care and kindness.
A Private Service will be held at the convenience of the family. The Riverview Funeral Home, 390 River Rd. Shelton are entrusted with the arrangements. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the charity of one’s choice.
