Carlita was a homemaker who loved to care for her family.
Carlita loved her special moments shared with her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed spending countless hours at the Casinos; playing poker with her family and summer picnics at Saratoga State Park. During the retirement years, she enjoyed traveling to Florida for the winter months with her husband and spending time on Cape Cod during the summer with her children.
