Mrs. Carol Ann Rollison, 73, of Middletown, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on February 14, 2021, to be reunited with her late husband Del Rollison, who passed on September 2, 2010.
Born in Washington, DC, Carol was the daughter of the late Joseph and Rosemary (nee O’Hagan) Barishek. She graduated from Elizabeth Seton High School in Bladensburg, MD and she and Del settled in Middletown, MD in 1976 to raise their family. Carol was active in Middletown youth sports, and was the scorekeeper for Middletown High School basketball even after her own children had graduated. She was also active in her community church, being involved in the founding and construction of Holy Family Catholic Church in Middletown. Carol also served as a grief counselor for several Holy Family grief groups. In addition to her service to her community, she, along with her husband, owned and operated RSI, Inc. in Frederick for over twenty years.
Her love for the beach, passion for gardening and the importance of family and togetherness are attributes we will fondly remember when we think of her. Carol’s limitless kindness and big heart touched all she came in contact with through her journey.
Carol is survived by three children, Michelle Gamba Rollison of New Market, MD, Micheal Del Rollison & partner Zarah Rautell of Philadelphia, PA, Justin Rollison & wife Kimberly of Leesburg, VA; sister, Linda McNabb & husband Jerry of Bear, DE; five grandchildren, Owen Gamba, Cole Gamba, James Rollison, Brooke Rollison, and Julia Rollison; and scores of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, sisters-in-law and other relatives.
