“Carmella enjoyed trips to Atlantic City and playing cards with her friends,” her obituary at Clayton & McGirr Funeral home stated. “She was an avid sports enthusiast, especially watching RAW Wrestling, the NY Giants, and the Yankees. But more than anything, she loved watching her grandchildren grow up to be wonderful young adults.”
