Carol A. Weiss
Cherished mom, grandma, and sister
Carol A. (Johnson) Weiss, 76, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 14, 2020 after a courageous 7-year battle with ovarian cancer.
Carol was raised in Florham Park, NJ and graduated from Hanover Park High School. She graduated from Trenton State College with a degree in Elementary Education. She began her teaching career as a 3rd grade teacher at Mt. Way School in Morris Plains, NJ. She continued her teaching career as a permanent substitute for the Parsippany-Troy Hills school district. She raised her family in Parsippany, NJ for 25 years and was very active in the community, including serving as President of the Troy Hills School PTA, President of the Parsippany Council of PTAs, and initiating/organizing the Parsippany-Troy Hills school district-wide fingerprinting program for elementary school students. After moving to Skillman, NJ in 1995, Carol remained active in the community as a Drumthwacket docent for 22 years and mentor for Princeton University postdoctoral international students. She was very involved at Trinity Church in Princeton, serving as reception desk volunteer, One Table Cafe waitress and rummage sale volunteer.
The pride and joy of Carol’s life were her children and grandchildren. She was their biggest supporter and cheerleader! She especially enjoyed all of the wonderful vacations they all took together over the years.
Carol was predeceased by her husband of 53 years, Ed and her parents Theodore and Eleanor. She is survived by her children Kim (Ron) Payne, Ed (Trish) Weiss III; grandchildren Ryan, Kevin, Rees, Landon, Riley and Griffin. She is also survived by her sister, Gloria Knight.
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, a celebration of Carol’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Carol can be made to Trinity Church, 33 Mercer Street, Princeton, NJ 08540.
Carol’s family would like to thank her “sister” friends, neighbors, and caregivers Ginny Scala and Joanne Prospero for all of their love and support. They would also like to thank Dr. Konner, Dr. Jewell and the entire Memorial Sloan Kettering team for their excellent care during Carol’s 7-year cancer battle.
Arrangements are under the direction of Mather-Hodge Funeral Home, Princeton, NJ.
