Carol Jean (Staigar) Puglisi, age 71, passed on September 29, 2021 peacefully, at home, with her two daughters by her side.
Carol had a balanced life of quiet moments on the porch and in the garden blended with adventurous moments with her close family and numerous friends. She enjoyed listening to a live band with her class of '68 from Saratoga Springs High School, sharing conversations and meals with her co-workers from the Burnt Hills - Ballston Lake School District, exploring cities with her walking group, and traveling with friends and family; her laughter and passion for life flourished when shared with others. The moments that defined her character were those spent with her family; laughing, talking and sharing a meal.
She is survived by her sister, two daughters, four grandchildren and numerous, loving cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends, who will miss her dearly.
