Carolyn Patricia Carbonara passed away peacefully on January 8, 2021 in Crestview, FL with her daughter by her side. Pat was born June 3, 1939 to the late Theodore W and Vera M Marchant in Omega, GA. Her family moved to Polk County in 1941, where 'Patsy' spent most of her life, until recently relocating to Crestview.
Pat Graduated from Lakeland High School in 1957. She attended Jones Business College in Jacksonville, FL, then embarked on a career as a stewardess with Eastern Airlines. In 1962, Pat married Joseph M. Carbonara, Jr. They moved several times as Joe's career took the growing family to several cities in the northeast and midwest US.
After her husband's unexpected passing in 1972, Pat returned to Lakeland to be near family. During her career in Lakeland, Pat worked for Imperial Bank, First Union Bank, and in the home health field.
Pat was preceded in death by her husband, her sister, Opal Marchant McDonald, and her brother, Melburne C. Marchant. She is survived by her son Joseph Carbonara III (Laurie) of Jacksonville, FL, son Robert Carbonara (Amy) of Lakeland, FL, daughter Julie Dillon (Rico) of Crestview, FL., and daughter Carol Procsal (Jeff) of Boise, ID. She is also survived by seven grandchildren who will miss 'Nana" always.
Pat loved to dance and is surely cutting a rug in heaven! A Funeral Mass will be held at 11am, Saturday, February 6th at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Lakeland, FL. A private family burial will follow at Oak Hill Cemetery.
