April 23, 1965 - June 24, 2021
Carol Ann Frey, age 56, of Matthews, NC, left this world on June 24, 2021, the same way she arrived, in the loving arms of her “Daddy Roots.” She was born on April 23, 1965, in the Bronx, NY, to Robert and Jeanette Frey. Her career started at Old Man’s Boat Yard on Long Island, where Bob Zumft, the owner she adored, mentored her. He taught her bookkeeping and her career flourished until her ovarian cancer diagnosis. Not only did Carol fight ovarian cancer, but she also fought for those without a voice. She took up animal rescue bringing many neglected pets into her home; no cost, no inconvenience was too much for her. Carol was in love with the freedom, friendship, adventure, and excitement of motorcycles. She shared this hobby/lifestyle with her father, who enjoyed and encouraged Carol; they actively rode together until her passing. Carol was preceded in death by her mother, Jeanette Frey, and her beloved companions Sheridan, Brookie, and Coco Loco. She is survived by her father, Robert Roy Frey; sister, Judy Pilla; brother-in-law, Richard Pilla; and nephew/godchild Ryan Pilla. Please join us in a celebration of her life: Saturday, July 10, 2021, at 11 a.m. Heritage Funeral Home Weddington Chapel 3700 Forest Lawn Dr. Matthews, NC 28104 Please join us for lunch immediately following the service so we can share stories and memories of Carol. For those unable to attend, a live stream will be posted on this site. In lieu of flowers, Carol has requested that only donations be made to her various causes. Carol loved to rescue and care for animals. The flowers will quickly wilt and die, but the money donated will bring life and comfort to those suffering. Please kindly find it in your hearts to honor her last wishes even though this is not traditional. Carol is watching, and thanks you!
