Carol Fair obituary
Carol Jean Fair was born on July 30th, 1935. She was 87 years old when she passed away. She married Donald S. Fair on September 22, 1951 and they had a long and good life together until his death in 2010.
She had three children- Deybra, Barbara, and Douglas. She also had three grandchildren- Patrick (Barbara’s son) and Melody and Meiko (Deybra’s daughters). Patrick and Courtney gave her two great grandchildren- Fiona and Flynn Devlin, and Melody Koerber and Justin Morris gave her Isadora Skye just this past January (Isadora was the bright, beautiful sky for Carol!). Doug had two daughters with Nancy Siciliano- Daniela and Gabrielle and they have three children. Daniela and Brett have a little boy named Bruno, and Gabrielle and Joseph have two children- Vita and Attilio. Doug also had a long-term relationship with Linda Weale, who has a daughter Brianna. Bri is married to Jacob Rady and they have a little boy named Lincoln Douglas.
Carol loved her family and friends fiercely. She did everything in her power to support them. She had some wonderful friends, and it is a testament to her loyalty and heart that many of those friends have been with her for well over 50 years. She had a good life with lots of adventures, mostly centered around her family and friends. Along with significant gifts, she also had deep losses in her life. Her mother and siblings died many years ago. Our dad, Don, died unexpectedly 13 years ago. The most challenging loss, of course, was that of Doug in 2022. His loss broke her heart, and she never really recovered. What mother could? Over the past year, she faced some serious health issues. These and a broken heart certainly contributed to her recent passing.
Those that knew Carol well knew that she was exasperatingly stubborn and ferociously independent. That served her well most of her life and allowed her to live as she chose to, but also meant some challenges too. Most importantly, she was incredibly giving and loving and would do anything for her family and friends (even for those she did not know, but were in need).
We will celebrate her beautiful spirit and life on April 18th, 11:00 am at Findlay C. Wylie Funeral Home Inc., 11311 Frankstown Road in Penn Hills. After a short service, we will have a graveside blessing at William Penn Cemetery located at 3559 Greensburg Pike. After the service, we invite you to join us at Jaden’s Catering located at 4727 William Penn Highway in Monroeville for lunch and a time to share.
