WELLESLEY – Carole G. (Giannelli) Crino passed away at her home in Wellesley Hills in the loving arms of her children Dana and Cynthia on January 22, 2021.
Carole was preceded in death by her adoring and much beloved husband Richard Crino.
Carole had a deep Catholic faith and abiding love of Christ. One of the ways her faith found expression was through her study of iconography. She became a self-taught expert on reading icons and took great joy sharing her knowledge on this with others, particularly the young.
Carole had the unique gift of seeing and loving the real person in everyone she met, and always remembered their cares and joys. She had open arms to comfort anyone in trouble, and always seemed to know the right thing to say to offer solace.
Carole was fun to be around. She had a child-like sense of joy that found the humor in every situation, and her “sneak-attack” surprises were legendary. Carole enjoyed cooking and feeding people until they were ready to burst. She was an avid gardener who could bring any dying plant back from the grave.
