Carol Marie McNulty, a 58-year resident of Setauket, NY, formerly Carol Clowery of Brooklyn, NY passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home surrounded by family on Good Friday, April 15, 2022. Carol was 86 years old and a survivor of cancer until the day of her passing. Carol is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, William McNulty and children, Michael, wife Mary and children Maggie and Mark, John and children Ryan and Erin, Mary and daughter Megan, Agnes and husband Chris, Cathy and husband Frank and children Francis, William and Marcus, and Doris Zehe McNulty, wife of Joey. She also mourned the loss of her youngest son Joseph and daughter-in law Kelly, wife of John.
While raising her family she completed college at Stony Brook University, went on to earn a Master's Degree at Long Island University and began a career of teaching in the public school system at the Bellport School District. This was preceded by her introduction to teaching through St. Thomas School in West Hempstead, St Francis School in Wantagh and finally at St. Anne’s School in Brentwood.
Carol, whose early life propelled her into one of special concern and love of children, was not only a teacher but also a poet, decorator, writer, peace activist and one inclined to openly express her life sustaining principles. Her sense of humor got her through many of life’s challenges.
Carol will be mourned and missed by extended family and many, many friends!
