Birth Date: 
Monday, August 16, 1943
Date of Passing: 
Friday, March 12, 2021

Carole Anne (Nolletti) Ford passed away on Friday, March 12, 2021 at the age of 77 after a lengthy illness. Born August 16, 1943, she was the loving daughter of Arthur E. Nolletti, Sr and Vera (Yankello) Nolletti. She was the second of six siblings and is survived by two brothers, Arthur (Diana) Nolletti, Jr. and Richard (Violet) Nolletti, and two sisters, Barbara (Richard) Frame and Marie Mortimer. She was predeceased by her parents, her brother, Bobby,  and her brother-in-law, Don Mortimer. She is survived by her son, Kip Kallenborn of Florida, as well as her nieces, Alexandra Elizabeth Nolletti, Veronica (Tim) Kotulak, Katie (Dan) Bolton, and Scarlette Nolletti, and her nephews Richard Miller, Eric Nolletti, Michael Nolletti, B. J. Nolletti, and Jon Nolletti, and her life-long friend, Donovan Milham.

She had a lifelong interest in fashion, and in her teens and twenties modelled for designers, including Oscar De La Renta. She lived briefly in New York City and Texas before returning to Wooster to be closer to family. An accomplished pianist, she loved all kinds of music. She also was an excellent cook whose pork chops her father said were the best he ever ate. She had a green thumb, loved plants and filled her home with them. But mostly she loved animals. She even adopted a rather large abandoned iguana, which lived in her back bedroom. However, she especially loved her cats, and made sure that neighborhood cats, rabbits and squirrels did not go hungry.

Married and divorced twice, she was passionate about everything she did, and lived her life on her own terms. She was greatly loved and will be greatly missed.

To All my Wooster family, Barbara and I send our deepest most heartfelt condolences. Carole was always an important person in my life and I will treasure her memory as long as I live.

My cousin Carole was so beautiful with a kind and loving heart. She was a sweetheart who loved all God's people and creatures. I have many fond memories of talking and laughing with her. A very special person. God bless her and her family.

My heart goes out to all of you on the loss of your sister, Carole.
It seems from reading the obituary that she had a full life that was well-lived. She was beautiful inside and out. I am sure she has crossed the 'rainbow bridge' along with her many pets and the animals that she loved.

A wonderfully written memoir of Carole.

My dear, dear cousin Carole....I will always hold a special place for you in my heart! We were so much more than cousins....more like the best sisters ever! The good times of all our fun, and shenanigans will be with me forever! Rest in peace Carole, I love you! Mary Ann”

Rest in peace, Carole. My condolences to all the family.

Such a beautifully written tribute to a vibrant soul. Her joyful presence on this Earth will be missed every day. May you be at peace with the angels, happy with the animals and people you love in Heaven, Carole. We love you.

I worked with Carole at Fashion Bug and she sure loved Fashion. She was such a kind hearted person.
Carole talked about her son so much and how much she loved him. Rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy to Rick, Marie, Barb and the rest of the Noletti family on Carole’s passing. She is at peace in her heavenly home.

To Art and family, we did not know Carole but you often spoke of her in such a loving way. May you find peace in your memories of her. May Carole Rest In Peace.

I'm so very sorry for your loss, I will pray for the repose of Carole's soul, may she Rest in Peace

I don't know if any of you will remember me. I was Evelyn James. I was at your home many times when Vera would do my mom's hair. I remember I always thought Carol was one of the most beautiful girls I had ever known. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. My heart goes out to all the Noletti family. I'm sure she is having a great time now visiting with all who went before her. Rest in peace Carol.

I am so sorry for your loss. I think we're related somehow. Aunt Nicolina married a Nolletti. Every life is precious and leaves a gaping hole in us when they're gone. Take care. Hugs.

Barb and family: So sadded to hear of Carol's passing. I'm sure her passing is hard for the family but knowing that she is at peace and in the arms of God will hopefully bring you comfort and solace. May your lifetime of Nolletti family memories help to brighten the darker days ahead and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sending heartfelt condolences for the loss of your sister.
May she rest in peace.

What a huge loss in your lives! She will ways be remembered by her beautiful & joyful spirit. I am so sad for all of you. But her reward is great! Sending love and memories. God's Peace!

Our thoughts and prayers to the family. Carole's at peace now.

My sympathy to Carol's family. She and I were often confused for one another in our teen years, which gave us a laugh. We had lost touch through the years, but I would run into her from time to time. Always greeted with a lovely smile, and lively spirit. I am sorry that she had to suffer so much, but am glad to know that she has finally found peace. RIP Carol.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.
