Carmel Figliola, 95, passed away peacefully January 10, 2020.
Carmel had a spitfire personality, endless energy and powerful strength for her tiny frame. She worked at PPG for 40 years and also moonlighted at O’Neill’s and Halle’s where she would be seen running from dressing rooms to designer racks with her arms loaded down with 20 outfits to find just the right look for her valued customers (all of whom she called “Honey”).
She was very strong minded, frequently shared her opinion, and was always generous with terms of endearment like “Sweetie,” “Honey” and “let me help you”. Her face would light up when meeting a new infant relative or one of the toddlers in the family, of which there are several.
She was also an avid golfer, a dedicated church supporter at St. Sebastian and St. Hilary and she also enjoyed traveling the globe in her younger years.
She had a good heart and volunteered at Children’s Hospital, both Grace and Carmel spent many hours volunteering to raise money for the hospital. Together they sold many tickets for the free car, at the Harness races for many years!
Carmel was preceded in death by her parents, sister, brother, and nephew. She is survived by her loving sister, Grace; her nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews and grand, grand nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the fabulous staff at Maplewood Senior Living for the love and support you gave Carmel for the past few months of her life.
Mass of the Christian Burial will be held at St Hilary Catholic Church, 2750 W. Market St. Fairlawn, OH on Saturday Jan. 18th at noon. Friends may call on the family one hour prior from 11-12. Entombment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.
