Obituary of Carole Faith Barclay
Carole Faith Barclay (née Apgar), 86, of Montville, NJ, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. Born and raised in Boonton, NJ, Carole lived in Lincoln Park, NJ for 23 years, raising her five children. She was a great listener and friend to many, and and adding an extra seat or two at her dinner table was never a problem. Predeceased by her husband, Daniel Barclay, her mother, Ellen Fitzherbert, and her sister, Barbara Weiss, she is survived by her five children, son Daniel Barclay (Louise) of Pompton Plains, and daughters Leeanne Leck (Robert) of Lincoln Park, Lynn Curatolo (John) of Pompton Plains, Karen Kline of Randolph, and Kim Kozas of Randolph. Carole is also survived by her sister, Danise Drugac (Harold) of Boonton, NJ, 15 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Her greatest joy in life was the time spent with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Some of her happiest times were spending the winter months at her home in Tequesta, Florida, playing golf, joining her friends in weekly maj-jongg games, gardening, reading, and doing crossword and sudoku puzzles. She was loved by many and will be greatly missed, but her live was well lived.
