Carolyn J. Foti

1938 - 2022


Foti, Carolyn, of New Hyde Park, NY on February 11, 2022, in her 83rd year. Married for 63 years to her beloved husband Anthony. Mother of Denise (Mark), Valerie, Ginny (Joe), Chris (Bonnie), and Jen (Anthony). Grandmother to Ryan, Lauren, Alex, Michael, Steven, Andrew, Samantha, Anthony, Caitlin, Allison, James, and Anderson. Cherished sister of Virginia. Predeceased by her parents Francis X. Shaw and Marion Romanosky, and brother Robert. Carolyn was a homemaker for many years, was an integral member of the New Hyde Park Road School/Memorial High School PTA, was the Nassau County Girl Scout Cookie Chairperson for 17 years, and also served as a clerk in the New Hyde Park Village court. She was a devoted parishioner of Holy Spirit RC Church for 57 years and was admired and respected by all who knew her. She always thought that her greatest accomplishment in life was the home and family she and her husband built together. At family gatherings she would frequently look at her husband and say, “Wow, look at what we started!”, referring to all the children and grandchildren that were a part of their legacy together. Carolyn was a great listener and was very inquisitive. She would frequently clip articles to give to you from Reader’s Digest or the newspaper pertaining to something you had discussed with her. On nice days, she loved to drink tea and eat her chocolate bars on the porch while chatting with the neighbors. There was always room for one more at the table she set, and many family and friends enjoyed her incredible cooking.
