Obituary

Carol Flagg Germinario, of Medford, NJ, passed away on July 26, 2020 at the age of 71, surrounded by family. Born in Bergenfield, NJ on June 13, 1949, she is predeceased by her parents, Claude Abbott Flagg, Jr. and Marjorie Ruth (Renz) Flagg.

Carol is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Laura Ann Germinario and Timothy Peter Dawson, of Marden, Kent, UK; her sister and brother-in-law, Judith and Robert Chisholm (Pottstown, PA); her brother and sister-in-law, Claude and Marilyn Flagg (Anacortes, WA); her brother and sister-in-law, John and Cynthia Flagg (Bel Air, MD), four nieces, four nephews, and many grandnieces and nephews she regarded as grandchildren.

Carol spent her early childhood in Bergenfield, before settling with her family in Marlton, NJ in 1965. She graduated from Lenape High School in 1967 and then earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Speech & Language Pathology from Trenton State College. Following her first job at an elementary school in Willingboro, NJ, Carol joined Evesham Township School System in 1976, where she was integral in pioneering a federal grant program for preschool handicapped students.

For over thirty years, Carol served Evesham Township children in need of speech and language services at multiple elementary schools. Her teaching aides found an invaluable mentor in Carol. She and her colleagues built lasting friendships that grew well beyond the classroom. Carol made a positive impact on the lives of countless students and their families and is remembered as hardworking, nurturing and fun. After retiring from her role in Evesham Township in 2008, Carol continued to consult part-time, first with a program that provided support services to local schools, and most recently for an early intervention program to support young children with developmental delays.

In her retirement, Carol began to explore Europe with her daughter and son-in-law, taking side trips to Germany, France, Holland, Belgium and Cornwall during her excursions abroad to visit them in the UK. Her commitment to her family was unwavering. Her love of the beach and a good book were not far behind. Carol treasured time together with her girlfriends, over a glass of wine and a laugh. While the global pandemic prevented these gatherings for several months, Carol kept herself busy by rekindling her sewing skills to make and donate facial masks when there was a shortage. She found ways to continue to serve others, even under lockdown.

Carol was fiercely independent and was, not long ago, still scrambling onto the roof against the advice of many to hang Christmas lights, climbing up a ladder to apply a fresh coat of paint inside her impeccably-maintained home, or moving furniture twice her size to accommodate guests. Carol was an excellent and considerate hostess, carefully planning the details of holiday gatherings and honoring family traditions. She always made sure there was something delicious for everyone. Her candy cane cookies were unmatched.

Carol was a devoted mother and faithful sister; a supportive aunt and doting great aunt; a steadfast friend, colleague and neighbor; a dedicated and talented speech therapist; a prolific reader; and an active, informed citizen. Her quick sense of humor brought delight to every interaction and had the power to transform tears into laughter. Carol’s sharp wit is her greatest legacy—leaving unique and joyful memories with those of us blessed to have been in her life.

At the request of the family, please leave a memory of Carol on the memory wall.

My heartfelt sympathies and prayers are with you Laura and Tim, through this time of unimaginable loss. May God walk beside you and guide you through.
Judy, Chuck, John and your families, I am at a loss of words, and I don’t know what to say to you to help you feel better. Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.
My deepest Sympathy, Your cousin, Laura

Carol was such an important part of our lives as we battled an uphill challenge to get our son to speak. She loved and nurtured him during his early development. Carol's sense of humor helped relieve the stress we felt during this time. Thanks to Carol's work our son hasn't stopped talking since these years long ago! She will be greatly missed.

Carol opened her heart and her arms to our son Tim when he married Laura and she welcomed us all wholeheartedly into her family. We did not get the chance to meet up very often but we enjoyed her company enormously when we did! She taught me to mix the best Cosmo - cheers Carol! RIP X

I became friends with Carol through Janet. We shared nice times together. Carol became one of our martini Mavens. She was intelligent, and witty. I will miss her.

Tap dancing with Carol when we were kids! Since finances were tight due to my sister Kathy’s illness and my parents couldn’t afford them, Carol would share her “lessons” with me whenever she’d visit us in Teaneck. I still remember her laugh!💜 And, no, I still can’t dance!
