It is with great sadness and sorrow that NAMGAR announces the sudden passing of its Chairman, Carol Shamonsky.  Carol passed away in her sleep on September 30th, 2018.

Carol was well known within the MG and NAMGAR family. She had been a long time NAMGAR member and was Vice Chairman of NAMGAR. She subsequently became NAMGAR Chairman in 2015 and had a few short months to complete her tenure. Carol will be sorely missed by the NAMGAR community.

The NAMGAR family sends their deepest sympathy to Carol's family and friends.

Funeral services, to be conducted by Rev. Bill Carter, First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit Pastor, are scheduled for Thursday, October 4th at 11:00am at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, PA. Interment will follow in Denison Cemetery in Swoyersville, PA.

Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Wednesday, October 3rd between 4-7:00pm at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Carol's name to the "My Brothers Keeper" Drive, c/o First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit, 300 School Street, Clarks Summit, Pa., 18411.

If anyone has any wishes, memories or pictures they wish to share they can mail them to Carol's daughter, Meredith Mead, 115 Wildflower Lane, Palmerton, PA 18071.

So sad, I'm sorry to hear this. I never met her, but always enjoyed her columns. RIP Carol.
