Carol Louise Farley


Mrs. Carol Louise Farley passed in her Chincoteague Island home on Oct. 4, 2021, with her son, David Eugene Graziano, and daughter, Angela Victoria Graziano, by her side. Carol was a resident of Chincoteague and a member of Saint Andrews Catholic Church where she sang soprano in the choir and the 3 Cs. Carol was a worldwide traveler, visiting Europe, flying in the cockpit of Air Force One, as well as sailing on the presidential yacht, The Sequoia. She was an avid opera fan and lover of the classical arts and antiques. She loved high adventure, including traveling with her dogs, riding mules on the Bright Angel Trail in the Grand Canyon, visiting Native American reservations, and hiking the canyons of the Four Corners region of the U.S. She loved to cook and eat … especially guacamole and margaritas.

She was born in Tulsa, Okla., on Feb. 11, 1938, where she resided until she left to attend college at Indiana University where she studied music.  In addition to Oklahoma, Carol lived in Vienna, Va., Sterling, Va., Mountainair, N.M., Bullfrog, Utah, and Lake Powell, Ariz.
Devoted mother and grandmother, and beloved sister, aunt, and friend, she is survived by her son, David, and her grandsons, John Walter, Christopher Mitchell, and Noah Paul Graziano; her daughter, Angela, and daughter-in-law, Jesse Wild, and her granddaughters, Taylor Nicole and Lauren Louise Tracy; her stepsons, William, Michael, and Chris Farley; and stepdaughters, Gail and Mary Ann Farley, and their spouses and children. Her late husband, Bill Farley, and her beloved dog, Abbey, preceded her in death and paved the way for her peaceful transition to the next part of her journey.

Carol’s children will be hosting a celebration of her life at St. Andrew the Apostle Roman Catholic Church on Saturday, April 23, 2022, at 11 a.m.

Services are entrusted to Salyer Funeral Home Inc. on Chincoteague Island.
