Caroline A. Amedeo

Caroline A. Amedeo, 92, passed away on Dec. 22, 2017. Caroline was born and raised in Akron, to the late Michael and Carmela (Attisano) Campisi and lived in Tallmadge for the last 45 years. She was a member of Our Lady of Victory and loved spending time with her family, sewing and gardening. Caroline met her beloved husband, Frank, when the two of them performed in their churches' Easter passion play. They shared 55 years of marriage. In that time Caroline decided to go to Gerber Beauty School and became a Cosmetologist and eventually managed the LaMarr Salon. With the addition of her third child she retired and became a homemaker. During those years she enjoyed tending to her flowers, sewing and working on puzzles. Her biggest joy came from being around her family. For those that knew her she will leave a memory of her strength and determination to fight, along with her very witty sense of humor. In addition to her parents, Caroline is preceded in death by her husband, Frank Amedeo; brother, Sam Campisi; and sister, Rosa Barbieri. She is survived by daughters, Carmela (Nicholas) Varvaro, Yvonne (Gene) Simia and Valerie (Todd) Renner; grandchildren, Michelle (Michael) Callipari, Michael Varvaro, and Austin, Kara and Chad Renner; great-grandchildren, Mia, Dom and Ava Callipari; and many loving nieces and nephews.

I have so many fond memories of Aunt Angie so I will just share a few... I am so thankful and blessed that Sally and I got to be with her almost to her last days... I will never forget being able to sit beside her while the Sto-notes performed at her nursing home, the night before she was taken to the hospital..then to be able to kiss her beautiful forehead 2 days before she left us...but I think my greatest memory is when my siblings and I went to visit her, she was still at her house, and we sat at her kitchen table, laughing and joking and talking about whatever came to mind...and of course drinking coffee... when it came around 8pm and she was ready to make another pot.... I finally said..."you know what Aunt Angie, I can't hang with you.. you'll have us up all night drinking coffee". We jokingly say that that's why you lived so long cuz of the amount of coffee you drank..... love you Aunt Angie..you will not be forgotten

I remember Zia you bought a brand new vaccum and wanted Roger to explain how to use it. After doing so, and showing you the attachments I ended up sweeping the Living Room..and the Family room....and both set of steps! Another time you showed me a catalog of insulated curtains for the sliding glass door. How perfect they would be ...you called me the next day and asked me what I was doing....I ordered your curtains! You were so excited and said:"I can't believe you did that"...curtains came and I called you up. You asked what Roger was doing. I replied..we are coming over to hang your curtains! You little Rascal Zia..you looked at me and said:"I had a feeling Roger would!" My favorite...you bought a new mop from QVC and wanted to show Roger and I. You put the mop in my hands and told me how it works.....I cleaned the Kitchen floor....entire floor! Zia? If we could of giving you the moon we would.We also know your telling the Angels about different things to make heaven cleaner and somehow the Angels are doing it all. Your a gem and we love you terribly.
