Carol Russell Obituary

Carol E. Russell, age 80, of Ansonia and formerly of Trumbull, beloved wife of the late Robert H. Russell, Sr., entered peaceful rest on Monday, December 18, 2023 surrounded by her family.

She was born on February 22, 1943 in Milford and was the daughter of the late Dorothy Peschell Stanislawski. Carol retired from Quest Diagnostic in Bridgeport as a popular dispatcher and tri-state driver and until 2020 worked as a very congenial and helpful cashier at Target in Ansonia.  She was respected by customers and staff alike.  People waited extra time in line just to deal with her friendly face and kind ways.

In addition, it’s her enthusiasm for her “Facebook Buddies” Carol was proud of her history with her C.B. radio (handle name- BLACK CAT).  In between the family and work she liked to crochet blankets for everyone and recalled many wonderful years camping with her family and friends.  She was caring toward all including her dogs, Maggie, Babe, Max, Caramea, China and surviving little one, Shelby.  She will be sorely missed.

Carol is survived by her children, Robert A. Stanislawski, Jr. of Bridgeport, Michael J. Stanislawski of Ansonia, Marcie E. Bernhardt (Eric) of FL and Carey A. Jones of Naugatuck, stepchildren, Daniel Russell of Middletown, Robert H. Russell, Jr. of Middletown, Honey Svobda (Joseph) of Pennsylvania, grandchildren, Rachel (Joe), Jesse (Stephanie), Josey. Daniel, Sonja, Donna, Robbie, Cameo, Christopher and Joey. She also leaves three great grandchildren, Abby, Addison and Sophia.
