Carol A. Farris

WARREN — Carol A. Farris, age 75, of New Lyme Township, Ohio, died at Trumbull Memorial Hospital on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013, after a spirited battle against complications from diabetes.

Born Jan. 7, 1938, in Warren, Ohio, she was the daughter of George and Virginia E. (Giddings) Gill. Carol graduated from Grand Valley High School in 1956 and married Neal M. Farris on Dec. 29, 1956.

She worked for over twenty years at Kennametal Inc. in Orwell as an inspector.

Formerly of Orwell, she and her family moved to New Lyme in 1971. She maintained wonderful friendships that she cherished deeply from living and working in and around Orwell for so many years.

She took great pride in preserving the bounty from the gardens that she and her husband tended for so many years. She was an avid reader but also spent much time knitting beautiful afghans as gifts for her family and friends. Her pride and joy was actively watching her granddaughters grow into beautiful, accomplished young women. She was thrilled to get to know her grandson knowing he, too, is on his way to being a terrific, capable young man.

Carol is survived by her husband; one daughter, Georgia Farris (William K.) Romanko of Andover, Ohio; one sister, Mary E. Gill of Warren, Ohio; and three grandchildren, Megan E. Huffman of Harrisburg, Pa., Cassandra A. Huffman of Columbus, Ohio, and Adam W. Romanko of Andover, Ohio.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a stillborn daughter, Cheryl Elaine; and son-in-law, Jerry W. Huffman.

A Memorial Service officiated by the Rev. Fred Grimm, will be held 11 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 9th, at the Brownwood Cemetery Chapel, North Bloomfield, Ohio (Route 87 West). A family greeting will take place prior to services at 10:30 am.

Memorial contributions may be made to Country Neighbor Program, 39 S. Maple St., Orwell, Ohio 44076 or Ashtabula Regional Home Health Services, 3949 Jefferson Road, Ashtabula, Ohio 44004. Memorial envelopes will be available at the Service.
