In Memoriam


Carol Pisapia
Oct. 11, 1948 – June 30, 2018

Carol Lynn Pisapia, a longtime resident of Canyon Lake, passed away early Saturday morning, June 30, in the company of her loving family. She was 69 years old.

Born Oct. 11, 1948, in Santa Monica, CA to Burbank and Lorraine Green, Carol was the middle of three children.  Her siblings remember she loved to bike ride and swim as a child, often spending hours in the pool during the summer.

Though she lived in California her entire life, she loved to travel. Her family would visit most of the 50 states and even venture to Mexico during her teenage years.

She lived in the San Fernando Valley after marrying Richard in 1968, where she devoted her time to raising their three sons. She continued to travel during this time, passing down her love of visiting new places to all of them. She would often take her sons camping during the summers, traveling to the beach, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and many other places.

After raising their family, she and Richard moved to Canyon Lake, where she stayed active in the community and volunteered time to the Canyon Lake Woman’s Club as well as other groups.

She continued to travel throughout her life, always looking forward to the next trip that would take her to new locations throughout the U.S. and to several countries throughout Europe, the Caribbean, and South America. She also loved to take cruises with friends and family up until the end of her life, returning from her last trip in May.

Carol is survived by Richard, her husband of almost 50 years; her three sons, Scott, Jonn, and Cory “Sean”; her brother Gary and sister Beverly; and four grandchildren.

We love you and will always miss you.
