Carol Reneson Obituary

Carol (Romaneck) Reneson, 74, of East Hampton, CT, passed away peacefully on January 4, 2024 in her home after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

 Born in Middletown, she was the daughter of the late Edward and Helen (Armstrong) Romaneck.  Raised in Portland, Carol graduated Mercy High School in 1967 and Central Connecticut State University in 1996.

 Carol met her husband, Anthony, on Christmas day in 1966 while attending a mutual friends Christmas party.  They married in 1970 and moved to South Dakota following Anthony’s stationing assignment from the Air Force.  In 1973 they moved back to CT.  They started their family in Middletown with the birth of their first son.  They decided to settle in East Hampton, CT and continued to grow their family having another son and daughter. 

 A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Carol adored being around her family whenever possible.  The holiday season spent at home with her family and summer vacations in York Beach, Maine were Carol’s favorite times.  Carol was a stay at home mom until her children were school aged when she began waitressing and bookkeeping at Farrell’s Restaurant in Portland.  Eventually she found work closer to home at both Diamond Pizza and the Hathaway Inn Restaurants in East Hampton.  Carol was known in the community as someone who would chaperon school field trips, a Cub Scout den mother who happily created arts and crafts for young cub scouts, helped out at school functions and participated in after school community events.  This love for helping children and schools lead Carol to go back to school where she eventually graduated from Central Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education.  Carol found her forever teaching home at Saint Thomas the Apostle school in West Hartford where she taught 1st grade making lifelong impacts on young minds.  Carol spent much of her free time providing for her family, grading school work, planning her school days and reading novels.   

 Carol will be deeply missed and is survived by her husband, Anthony Reneson, her children Michael and Joanna (Lapenta) Reneson, Robert and Danielle (Lineberry) Reneson and Rebecca Reneson; her grandchildren Gabriel, Elise and Carter Reneson, her siblings; Bruce Romaneck and his wife Louanne, Susan (Romaneck) Squires and her husband Barry and David Romaneck and his wife Eileen.
