Carol Ann Carlesimo, age 78 of Long Branch, passed away peacefully at Monmouth Medical Center surrounded by her family on January 16, 2023. Carol was born June 8, 1944 in Newark. She was a lifelong resident of Long Branch and a graduate of Long Branch High School. She was a parishioner of Holy Trinity Church of Christ the Parish in Long Branch.
Her favorite place was Pier Village. Carol loved spending time with her summer friends at the Thursday night concert series. She enjoyed eating at McLoone’s where her favorite dish was clams. Carol brought love and laughter wherever she went and was the life of the party where you could always find her dancing. She was a devoted mother and grandmother. "MomMom" was witty and strong, and with that, we all called her "Butch".
She will be missed dearly by all of us.
Carol was predeceased by her parents Anthony and Antoinette Villano and “Brother” Louis Carlesimo. She is survived by her son Louis and his partner Karen and her son Anthony; her daughter Jaime and her partner JC Sanchez; grandchildren Ginna, Mikael and Ava; great grandson Apollo; brothers Vinnie and his wife Joyce, Bruce and his wife Georgette and Robert; sisters in law Celeste and Rose, and many loving nieces, nephews and countless Godchildren.
