Carol (Mostad) Piezzo, 76, died peacefully at home on February 17, 2021. She was born in 1944 to the late Charlotte and Vernon Mostad. Growing up in Norwich, CT she graduated from Norwich Free Academy. She married Joseph T. Piezzo, Jr. in 1967 and they resided in Westerly, RI where they raised their family. Carol was the proud co-owner and operator of Piezzo Construction with her husband for over thirty years. She was a dedicated communicant of the Church of St. Clare where she touched the lives of many of the parish’s children as the Director of Religious Education. She also was honored to serve as a Eucharistic Minister, a task she was devoted to.

Carol is survived by her beloved husband of 54 years, Joseph Piezzo. She was predeceased by her brother, Vernon Mostad, and her loving daughter, Christine Piezzo. She also leaves behind her daughters, Suzanne Tamburro and husband Jim of South Windsor, CT and Jo-Ann Holmes and husband Patrick of Colchester, CT. Family meant everything to Carol. She had such a special gift of always bringing people together to celebrate accomplishments, big or small. Carol’s grandchildren were the light of her life and she loved them “a bushel and a peck.” Whether that be attending sporting events, concerts or school occasions, she brought her love and support to proudly cheer them on. Her grandchildren, Eliza and Latham Woodman; Joey and Jimmy Tamburro, and Hannah and Jack Holmes. Carol will always be remembered for her soft blue eyes, her kindness toward everyone she met and her fantastic cooking. The family wishes to extend special gratitude to Jodi and Kelly, two angels whom she loved like family, for their amazing care.

Sorry to hear of Mrs. Piezzo's passing. Beauty lies in the life that one has lived but a greater beauty is the hope we have in God’s promises. So with hearts filled with sadness may we remember Mrs. Piezzo as that smiling light, that glimmer of encouragement, that shining example of caring that touched the lives of so many and was much appreciated by all who knew her. Know that she will long be remembered, not only by family and friends but also by God who extends His wonderful promises to all. John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:11, 29 My prayers are with the family.

My beautiful cousin Rest In Peace🌹❤️🌹 Always a smile, when a young boy we would go to get pizza at Vocaturas where she worked. Sunday afternoons at aunt Charlottes house. Or walking the beach at Seaside, she always had that beautiful smile! My heartfelt condolences go to Joe and the entire family! Although we drifted away from each other as the family grew older, I’ll always cherish my memories of my beautiful cousin Carol. ❤️

To Carol's beloved family:
It is always shocking to learn of someone's passing whom you have known quite a long time. My acquaintance with Carol has been through elementary school with her beautiful children and through St. Clare Church, where she has served for so long and with such devotion. My sincere sympathy to all the family and I pray that this wonderful legacy of service, caring and love will bring deep comfort as you mourn her loss together with this community.
