PATRICK, CAROL ANNE (PAMPALONE) – 78 of Northfield, NJ, passed away at Shore Medical Center on Saturday, January 11, 2020.
Carol was born on October 16, 1941, in Orange, NJ, to the late William and Anna (Gural) Pampalone.
While a student at Douglass College, Rutgers University, Carol sang with the Rutgers University Choir and performed with such major orchestras as the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Carol graduated in 1963 with a degree in Education and took her first job teaching English in Morristown, NJ.
After marrying her high school sweetheart, Steve, in 1965, they moved to Baumholder, Germany, while her husband completed his military service. While there, they had their first child, Beth. They returned to the states in 1968 and moved to Northfield where they went on to have two more children, Meg and Rob.
Carol spent her life as an educator. After spending time at home with her three children, Carol reentered the workforce substitute teaching at schools throughout Atlantic County and then began a more than 30-year career as an English teacher at Holy Spirit High School in Absecon.

She served on the Northfield Library Board and was a founding member of the Northfield Bicentennial Committee which later became known as the Northfield Cultural Committee. Carol served as chairwoman for both committees for the duration. She was a volunteer at the Northfield Museum in Birch Grove Park for many years. Carol also served in the nursery at Central United Methodist Church for 39 years.

So often we fail to recognize the impact people make in our lives. Carol Patrick is one of those individuals who impacted so many we all should thank her and her family for sharing her with us. Carol Patrick never drove, she directed to help us all.. Her warmth was as much in her desire for a student to succeed as a baby felt in her arms. Thank you Lord for giving us Carol Patrick, for bring her into our lives, and for showing yourself to us through her. I will always cherish the love you showed me Mrs. Patrick and the warmth I felt in your smile.

Thanks John, I know she thought well of you also. And of all the Sames.

I loved Mrs. Patrick. As a student at HSHS, she supported me in the school play and dedicated her extra time to us theatre kids. I’ll remember her for her kind face and her love and dedication as a teacher. My condolences to her family. Rest In Peace Mrs. Patrick ❤️
