Longtime North Fork resident Carol-Lynn Manno passed away June 30, 2014, in the care of Spartenburg Hospice in South Carolina in the arms of her mother and sister. She was born Feb. 23, 1956.
Carol struggled with a rare cancer that left her paralyzed, yet to the end she was determined to beat the cancer and walk again.
Carol was a loving daughter, hardworking, loyal to many friends, an avid motorcyclist and member of American Bikers Aimed Toward Education (ABATE). She will be missed by many for her sincere acts of kindness and thoughtfulness to others.
Carol leaves behind her stepfather and mother, Christopher and Catherine (née Cuozzo) Gawelko; sisters, Cynthia and Mary-Ellen Manno; nephew, Jeremy (Daci) Slater; niece, Christina Chadwick; two great-nephews; two great-nieces; her uncles James and Dominick Cuozzo; and many cousins. She was predeceased by her father, Thomas Manno; and her grandparents Frank and Wanda Cuozzo and Sebastian and Louise Manno.
The request for no services was honored by Carol’s family. She wanted to remembered as she was before the illness ravaged her body.
“Ride Hard – Live Free,” My beloved daughter, my “Rebel With a Cause.”
