Carol ZagnoliDecember 17, 2017
Carol Zagnoli of Macungie, PA, has passed away after a 6-1/2 year battle with cancer at the age of 61. Carol was born in Clinton, NJ, to Bob and Sue Naylor. She graduated in 1976 from the Temple School of Dentistry and in 1982 from Albright College with a B.S. in Nutrition. She enjoyed her work for many years as a Dental Hygienist in both Reading and Trexlertown, PA.
She (re)met her husband, David, in 1978 through their parents, who lived on the same Kansas street during their childhoods. They married in 1981 and to this day, David wonders what on earth she saw in him. David and Carol had two sons, whom Carol lovingly, sacrificially, and faithfully raised. She was incredibly proud of their accomplishments. Carol found a lot of joy in serving others through her leadership of Bible studies and Moms in Touch, her volunteering at Care Net Pregnancy Center, and especially her service on a trip to Mexico with Habitat for Humanity. Carol enjoyed talking with and learning about others, whether friends, family, or strangers. She was a caring and gentle soul, and lit up a room with her smile. All who knew Carol also know that her faith in Jesus Christ was central to her life and that she looked forward to heaven where she could be in the presence of God. Her family is grateful that she can celebrate the birth of our Savior in heaven with him. Psalm 17:15: “As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness.”
Carol is survived by her mother, Sue; husband, David; sons, Charles (Amanda) and Daniel (Amanda); brothers, Tom (Connie) and Ed (Jennifer); grandchildren, Grant and Nicolo; and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews who will all miss her dearly.
