Carol A. Gullo
Carol A. Gullo, 83, of Spruce Street, Jamestown, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019 in UPMC Chautauqua Hospital.
She was born Aug. 28, 1935, in Jamestown, the daughter of the late Adolph and Minnie Nazzaro Colera.
Carol was a 1953 graduate of Jamestown High School. She was a devoted wife, mother of six, grandmother, sister, and friend. Carol demonstrated her priorities of faith and family in everything she did. As a devout Catholic, all of her children attended Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic School. She started working as a teenager for her parents at Johnny’s Lunch, and continued to support her brother and sister in the family business (Johnny’s Lunch and AJ’s) after raising her children.
Through her work, volunteer activities and hobbies, Carol cultivated a beautiful social network of friends. She was a long-standing member of the Catholic Daughters of America, where she held several leadership positions. She was also a founding member of the “Gourmet Girls,” a club of amazing women that she and her friends started in high school that is still going strong today. She also led and organized many of her high school class reunions throughout the years.
Carol’s hobbies included bowling, cooking, baking and playing cards with her friends. She was a role model to those who knew her for her grace, joy, optimism, strength, kindness to others and unconditional love. Carol saw each day as a blessing and lived life to its fullest. She was a communicant of Holy Apostles Parish, Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church.
