Carole Barbara Martin, 94, passed away on January 17, 2022, in the presence of her daughter.

She is survived by her sister, three children, four grandchildren, and two great-granddaughters. As a friendly soul who loved to travel, she is also remembered by her friends around the world from Switzerland to Kenya.

Carole was born on April 26, 1927 to parents Sam and Francis Everts. Francis was born in Puerto Rico and passed away in the early 1970s, and Sam was of Russian descent and passed away in the late 1990s. Carole and sister, Shirley Everts Weissman, were born and raised in Washington Heights, NY

After marrying James Martin, Carole moved to Old Tappan, NJ. She worked at Unilever in Fort Lee until she turned 67, and spoke fondly of her coworkers there, often visiting the company store until she moved away from NJ a few years ago.

One of Carole's greatest passions was her love for animals. One of her lifelong dreams was to see wild cats, which she achieved by going on a Safari in her eighties. Carole was the owner of Carillon Kennels where she raised Standard Schnauzers.  For over twenty years she raised AKC Champions and showed them in America, Canada, and Bermuda. Carol loved all kinds of animals. Throughout her life, Carole supported a variety of animal charities.

Her first son, Kevin and his wife Jeanne enjoyed watching Carole be a grandmother to Jaclyn and Kyle, as well as become a great-grandmother to Logan and Leslie.

Her second son, Stephan and his wife Debora often had Carole visit them in Florida where she spoiled their pets.

Her daughter, Stacey and her favorite son in law (she only had one) Patrick O’Sullivan, will always remember that even in Carole’s last days, she continued to be the spunky and talkative person she had always been. Their children, Daniel and Devin, fondly remember summer days by the pool with their grandmother, where she shared with them her love of reading.

Carole was an unforgettable person with a big personality, and she will remain in all of our hearts for the years to come. We wish her a peaceful journey, and we are so thankful we got to know her during her long and full life.

Due to COVID-19, there will be no funeral or memorial service. Please take a moment of silence to remember Carole. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee https://www.elephants.com/
