Carole Lee Carbonneau Foley, 72, passed quietly in hospice care at Bristol Hospital on August 16 after a long struggle with kidney failure and other health issues.

A ten-plus generation Sandy Hook resident, she was born November 17, 1947, to the late Catherine Agnes (Casey) Carbonneau and Albert Leo Carbonneau. She graduated from Newtown High School, class of 1965. She married and had three children, Michael, Catherine, and Teresa. While raising her family she worked for many years at Curtis Packaging Corporation and the old Grand Union in Newtown. Her love of writing, drawing, and crafting and her gifts for crochet, poetry, and music live on in her children and grandchildren. A friend of Bill, she was proud of her 40 years of sobriety.

She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Thomas Foley, of Bristol; her brother, Alan Carbonneau, of Middlebury; son, Michael L. Duffy, and his wife, Goldyn, of Aliso Viejo Calif.; daughter Cathy Duffy Buxton and her husband, Toad Buxton, of Sharon, Vt.; daughter Teresa Duffy of Torrington; stepson, Chris Foley, of Bristol; stepdaughter, Elaine Foley, of Bristol; grandchildren Jade Michael of Connecticut, Kaylee, Emma, and Shaelinn Duffy of California, Tobias and Delia Nasipak of Ohio, and Seamus Witkowski, Jack Channels, and Michael Duffy of Connecticut; step-grandchildren Meagan Edgar and Anthony Foley of Connecticut, Katie Stigers and Zach Foley of Texas, and Kyle Marois of Connecticut; great-grandchild, Kinsley Howerton, of California; step-great-grandchild, Theo Stigers, of Texas; and many nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and -nephews.
