Obituary for Carole Farina

Carole Farina
March 31, 1946 - May 23, 2017

Carole Louise Farina, age 71, passed away on May 23, 2017 at Virginia Mason Medical Center after a battle with cancer. She was born in Oceanside, NY on March 31, 1946 to Iris and Melvin Combs.

She married her high school sweetheart Joe Farina on June 4, 1966. Joe’s career took them to Florida and Maryland, before settling them in Oak Harbor, WA in 1974.

They went on to have two daughters, Laura and Jean. Carole kept busy volunteering in the girls’ classrooms at school. Despite her struggles with chronic illness, and a previous bout with cancer, Carole was a dedicated mother, wife, and friend. She had a contagious laugh, and showed her love for family and friends through cooking and hosting social gatherings.

In most recent days, Carole enjoyed traveling to visit relatives across the county. She also spent many days watching her four grandchildren she adored, and made every holiday incredibly special for them.

Carole is survived by her husband Joe Farina of 50 years, her daughters Laura (Tim) Jackson of Mukilteo, WA and Jean Farina of Bellingham, WA. Four grandchildren Tyler, Katelyn, Joey, and Sofia also survive her.

A visitation will be held on Wednesday evening May 31 from 6-9pm at Wallin Funeral Home. A funeral mass will be held at 11am Thursday June 1 at St. Mary Catholic Church in Anacortes. Recitation of the Rosary will be held at 10:30 am prior to the funeral mass.

The family suggests memorial donations be sent to Carole’s favorite charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, PO Box 1000 Memphis, TN 38148.
