RODIA Carolyn L. "Casey" Rodia, beloved wife of age 56 years of Ralph J. Rodia, 
passed away peacefully Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at The Griffin Hospital with her 
loving family surrounding her. Carolyn was born July 6, 1932 in Bridgeport, to the late 
William and Leah Rauscher Casey. She graduated from Warren Harding High School, 
class of 1950, and entered the Bridgeport Hospital School of Nursing, but put her 
career on hold to raise her family. Following the birth of her seventh child, Carolyn 
returned to nursing in the LPN program at Bullard Havens Technical School and 
graduated Valedictorian and President of the class of 1969. After working several 
years at Saint Vincent's Medical Center, Carolyn owned and operated the former 
Card'n Party Shop in Huntington Center for the next 10 years. Missing her nursing 
career, Carolyn returned and discovered her true calling in geriatric care. While 
working at Saint Joseph's Manor in Trumbull and Marion Heights in Monroe, Carolyn 
and three co-workers decided to open their own adult day care center, Generation 
Senior Day Care in Seymour, where she was President and Director until her retirement 
in 2001. She will forever be remembered for her generosity, compassion and devotion 
to her family, friends and clients. Besides her husband, Carolyn is survived by her 8 
devoted children: Linda Dobrydney of Milford, Thomas Rodia and his wife Karen of 
Stratford, Susan Melita and her husband John of Milford, Diane Carfo and her husband 
Marc of Shelton, Eileen Rotunno and her husband, Jim of Seymour, John Rodia of 
Shelton, Patti Cavallaro and her husband Keith of Seymour, Lorri Redding and her 
husband Bill of Naugatuck, 19 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Carolyn 
also leaves her sister Sharon Iannotti and husband, Jerry of Milford; several sisters-in-
laws, nieces and nephews, and her life long friends, Chester and Mary Bielecki of 
Stratford. She was predeceased by her sister, Janet Michalek. Funeral services will 
take place on Monday, June 23 at 9:15 a.m. in the Adzima Funeral Home 50 Paradise 
Green Place, Stratford, and at 10 a.m. at St. Mark Roman Catholic Church, 500 
Wigwam Lane Stratford with a Mass of Christian Burial. Interment will be in Mountain 
Meadows Cemetery in Seymour. Friends may call on Sunday from 3 to 7 pm. In lieu of 
flowers, those wishing may donate to the American Cancer Society, the National 
Shrine of Saint Jude, Saint Mark Church Stratford, or The Griffin Hospital. For more
