Rosemary Carver
1925 - 2020

Wallingford, CT Rosemary Carver, 95, passed away peacefully at Masonicare Health Center Hospice, Saturday, January 18, 2020.

Rosemary was born March 14, 1924 the daughter of the late James and Rose (Behlman Fox) Carroll. Formerly of Southbury, she raised her family in Naugatuck where she lived for many years. During WW II, she assembled military aircraft instruments as part of the “Rosie the Riveter” team while her fiancé (and later husband), Ed, was fighting in the Pacific. Rosemary was primarily a homemaker but somehow managed to find time to work as a sales associate at G. Fox & Company while raising four boys. She was very active with St. Francis School and Church where she taught catechism classes for many years. She enjoyed gardening in her younger days, making floral arrangements, and traveling to Europe and other parts of the world with her long time traveling companion, the late Phyllis Belanger. She also enjoyed painting, which she did up to her final days.

Rosemary leaves behind two sons, Don Carver (Carol) of Middlebury and Vincent Carver of Norwich; four grandchildren, Jennifer (Agnelo) Martins of Mrytle Beach, S.C., Tara (Jack) Doyle of Ivoryton, Eric Carver of Charleston, S.C. and Lauren Carver of Brooklyn, NY, and four great-grandchildren, Jaelyn Mendoza, Breanna Martins, and Charlotte and Jack Doyle. She was predeceased by her husband Edward, and sons, Frederick, Robert, and James.

Rosemary’s family would like to thank Masonicare Health Center Hospice, the Franciscan Hospice and the Masonic staff of Ramage 6 for their care and support.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc., 4210 77th Street E, Palmetto, FL 34221, Masonicare Health Center Hospice, 22 Masonic Avenue, Wallingford, CT 06492 or Franciscan Hospice Care, 267 Finch Avenue, Meriden, CT 06451.

Funeral Services will be held at the convenience of the family in the spring. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Buckmiller Thurston Mengacci Funeral Home, 82 Fairview Avenue, Naugatuck.

Don, Vin, Carol, and beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren: With a generation separating our lives, how can I fully realize the greatness of this woman called mom, mother-in-law, grandma, and great grandma? Easy - look at the children and legacy she bore.

It is not easy reflecting on ones life as those you loved and cherished move on - especially when the pain of losing Bob at such an early age still burns in my memory and heart - as I'm sure it did as well for Rosemary. Let us not forget Jim, and Fred whom most of us never knew, who also await the arrival of this great woman into God's heaven.

And while the invitation above asks that we "share our favorite stories" I imagine both the limit on number of characters which can be entered into this page, as well as the statute of limitations against the ill-conceived fun of youths both prevent me from fulfilling that request. Just let it be said that all the thoughts I can express here will never come near showing the gratitude I have for the influence on my life brought by Rosemary and Bob, Phyllis and Craig, and my mom who also passed last year after fulfilling 95 great years on earth. To those of you who still have their mothers, fathers, siblings, and other close family members around today - cherish them. They are irreplaceable.

With love, sadness, and sincere respect - Fred Mangini
