STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Carol Araneda, 73, of Meiers Corners, died Friday at the Golden Gate Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, Meiers Corners.

Born Carol Roberti in Canarsie, Brooklyn, she moved to Rossville in 1995, and to Toms River, N.J., in 2001 before moving back to the Island to Meiers Corners a year-and-a-half ago.

A homemaker, she enjoyed cooking, trips to Atlantic City, bowling, playing online computer games, and chatting with friends online.

“She was known for her world-famous meatballs,” said her granddaughter, Kristin DiSalvo.

Mrs. Araneda was a parishioner of St. Joseph-St. Thomas R.C. Parish, Pleasant Plains.

Surviving are her husband of 53 years, John; two sons, Joe and John; three daughters, Theresa Araneda, Rosie DiSalvo and Amanda Araneda, and four grandchildren.

The funeral is Tuesday from the Bedell-Pizzo Funeral Home, Tottenville, with a mass at 9:30 a.m. in St. Thomas the Apostle R.C. Church, Pleasant Plains. Burial will follow in Pine Lawn Memorial Park on Long Island.

Carol and I were more like sisters than cousins. When our kids were little we spent so much time together and we had so much fun Good times that will never be forgotten. I know we will meet again. I know now she is surrounded by our family that went before her and that gives me comfort and I can only hope it will comfort all of you.
All my Love -

Aunt Carol will always be remembered and loved. I can remember as a little girl visiting the house in Brooklyn - it was always so much fun - Aunt Rosie and Uncle Monty upstairs and Uncle Johnny and Aunt Carol downstairs.
I hope you can find comfort in the fact that she had an entire family of people waiting for her to welcome her home. She is at peace now.
All our love -
Barbarann, Richie, and Children
