HARPERSFIELD — Carol Gewandter, 65, died Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013, surrounded by her family. She was born in New York City.
She earned her B.S. in psychology from the City College of New York. She later moved to Harpersfield, where she and her husband, Peter, raised their two daughters.
Carol was a very loving mother, wife, sister and daughter. She embraced and celebrated each of her friends’ unique qualities and could always be counted on to lend support in any way she could.
Carol was an avid gardener who generously shared her fresh vegetables and blueberries. She also shared her love of reading with the patrons of the Stamford Village Library, where she worked for many years. Carol loved to sing and dance and had an infectious sense of humor.
At her request, no funeral service will be held. A celebration of life will be held at the Gewandter residence June 8, 2013. All those who would like to share memories of Carol are invited to attend.
