Carol Ann Meehan Foley joined her husband, retired City of Napa Fire Captain Robert J. Foley, Jr, in heaven on Sunday July 15, 2018 just shy of her 83rd birthday.
Carol was born July 29, 1935, in Oakland, California, to Francis E. Meehan Sr. and Georgina C (Hildebrand) Meehan. They lived in Richmond and San Pablo briefly prior to moving to Napa in 1943 during World War II.
After graduating from Napa High in 1954, her brothers introduced her to the love of her life and they married in Reno Nevada on June 9, 1956. She enjoyed all the traveling they did together which included finding fire lookouts and chasing trains.
Carol had a kind and giving heart. She was filled with love and had a great personality full of fun and sarcasm. She had many hobbies from her love of cactus and bird watching to sewing, cross stitch and painting.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 57 years, and her siblings, Michael, Barbara, Frank Jr, Dennis and Donald. She is survived by her nieces and nephews Debi Meehan, Angelo Peruch, Karen Howell, Lynn Hill, Larry, Steve and Jim Gragg, and sister in law Jean Meehan, along with other family and friends.
I want to express my sincere thanks to Krystal Smith and her amazing team of care givers at Napa Valley Senior Living and to the doctors, nurses and hospice team at Kaiser Hospital.
Private Interment will be at Tulocay Cemetery in Napa
