Adelina “Winnie” Giovanna Carnevale Harwood, 87, passed away peacefully on February 27, 2022 at home in Newtown, PA, where she resided for the past eight years. A cherished mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, she was born and raised in Princeton, NJ, where she met her husband and was employed by Educational Testing Service. She liked reading mystery books; watching crime shows and Pixar movies; and creating needlework, knit, and crochet pieces for her family. She enjoyed listening to music, especially country, big band, and anything sung by Pavarotti or Bocelli. Winnie loved celebrating and cooking during the holidays with her family. Most of all, she loved spending time with friends and family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her home in central Princeton was always open and her cookie jar was always full, earning her the nickname “Cookie Grammy” from her grandchildren and their friends.
Winnie was preceded in death by her parents Olindo and Emma (Procaccino) Carnevale, her beloved husband of 57 years, Robert E. Harwood, and her brother Olindo Carnevale, Jr. She is survived by her son David (Lynne) Harwood; her daughter Dana (Michael) Robinson; her grandchildren Sarah (Grant) Morrow, Julia (Brandon) Sieczkowski, Robert, Christopher, and Laura Harwood, Andrew Robinson, and Emily (Alec) Neumann; her great-grandchildren Teagan and Elodie Morrow and Quinn and Raelynne Sieczkowski.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 3, 2022 at St. Paul’s Church, 216 Nassau St., Princeton, NJ 08542. Burial will follow in Princeton Cemetery.
