Carol Ann Piersimoni

Carol Ann (Swawola) Piersimoni, of Vineland, transitioned peacefully on Saturday December 2, 2017, surrounded by family and friends. She was 76 years young. Carol was born in Dickson City, PA to the late Edward and Beatrice Swawola and moved to Vineland in 1959 where she worked as a seamstress for many years. Her most important career was being a mom to her daughters Karen, Patricia and Paula as well as countless friends who found love and happiness in her home. Carol enjoyed the simple things in life; crabbing, cooking, bingo, The Young and Restless and the penny slots at the Borgata. She will be forever remembered for always making room for one more at the table and never sending anyone home hungry.

In addition to her daughters, Carol leaves behind her son-in-law Ken Joyce; her sister Marylou Buchler; her brother Dennis Swawola and her brother and sister-in-law Benito and Maria Sopranzetti. Carol was predeceased by her husband of 47 years, Ubaldo Piersimoni and her brothers, Richard and Steve.
