Jill Marie Carboni was the second of two Marist College students that passed away,within two weeks of one another. The first was Caitlyn Ann Boyle and now we remember and celebrate Jill as well.
"What an extraordinary life she has led for 21 years," her aunt said. "When I think of Jill, I think of sweetness, kindness, caring and compassion."
Another passion was boyfriend Dominic Farrell of Mendon, Nargi-Brown said. "Dominic told me he started checking her out in kindergarten," she said. "They were friends..then he convinced her to go to junior prom 'as friends' and then their love grew."
As the service ended, friends and family were encouraged to leave their thumbprint on a poster board in remembrance of games that Jill played with her friends. Once she had her friends trace their feet and hands and had eachother guess who was who. The thumbprints insure that Jills playful nature will never cease.
The funeral of Miss Jill Marie Carboni was held Friday, Dec. 2, 2005, from the Edwards Memorial Funeral Home, followed by a concelebrated Mass of Christian burial in St. Michael's Church, Mendon.

At the conclusion of Holy Communion, songs of reflection were sung by the Rev. Derrick Frye, pastor of the MetroWest Worship Center in Ashland, accompanied on the electric piano by Rodrigo DeJesus.
