Dorothy “Carol” Veale, 79, of Upper Deerfield Township passed away on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at the Advanced Subacute Rehabilitation Center in Sewell.
Carol was born in Bridgeton and was the daughter of the late Luther T. Norris, Jr. and June Dooley Norris and the wife of the late Charles H. Veale. She had been an Upper Deerfield Township resident for 51 years and had lived in Rosenhayn prior to that.
She had previously been employed with the Owens-Illinois Glass Company in Bridgeton and then later as a technician with the Rutgers Agriculture and Research Extension in Upper Deerfield Township since 1996.
Carol was a member of Bethel Baptist Church in Upper Deerfield Township. An avid animal lover and traveler, she enjoyed caring for her home, yard and pool. She also enjoyed cooking, playing cards and especially spending time with family and friends, along with watching the birds and the occasional deer visiting her at her home. Carol never forgot her roots and her love for the South and her relatives taking trips there to visit whenever she could. She cherished her time with her “special family” Jessica, Dave, Ian, Hazel and Nigel Gilligan.
Surviving are her daughter, Robyn Veale of Hopewell Township and her nephew, Brian Ciccio of Bridgeton. In addition to her husband, Charles and her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Barbara “Bobbie” Ciccio.
Graveside funeral services and a celebration of Carol’s life will be announced and held at a future date. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations in Carol’s memory be made to the South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter, 1244 North Delsea Drive, Vineland, NJ 08360.
