September 19, 1939 – June 2, 2017
Carole A. Mammolenti, 77, entered Heaven’s gates on July 2, 2017, while surrounded by her family
She was born in Mishawaka, IN on September 19, 1939 to the late Gerald “Jerry” and Eunice (Lynch) Pratt.
On December 3, 1955, Carole married her junior high school love, Milio Mammolenti. He survives. To their union, they were blessed with four children, Theresa M. “Teri” Mammolenti, Virginia (Dennis) Gard and Milio A. “Tony” Mammolenti, all of Edwardsburg, and Monica (Tony Wydajewski) Mammolenti of Union, MI. Also surviving are: Carole’s brother, Jerry Pratt of Elkhart; and two sisters, Diane Straub and Karen Griggs of Mishawaka. She was preceded in death by siblings, Jack Pratt, Tom Pratt, Judy Hoover and Phil Pratt.
Carole just adored her seven grandchildren, Tonya (Eric) Gard Burns, Malissa (Matt) Gard Bellis, Nicole Ellis, Amie (Cody) Catanzarite Oswianowski, Arin (Andrew) Ellis Seigel, Michael (Jessica) Catanzarite, and Jordan (Ashlee) Rassmusen. She lived with joy for her ten great-grandchildren, who called her Nana, Makayla Shaw, and Kayla and Kyliee Seigel, and the late Emma Seigel, Kara, Ava and Chase Rasmussen, Lazzaro Dance, and Delaney and Hadlee Burns, and two on the way.
Carole was thought of and called mom by many who crossed her path. Her heart was so full and open to any that needed. She was special to almost everyone that ever met her, truly touching many lives. God gained an angel. She will be greatly missed.
