Carrie Rae Mangano was a caring wife, mother, sister, daughter, granddaughter, and friend. Carrie was called home to be with the Lord on March 11, 2022, at the age of 47. Carrie will be desperately missed by all those that she’s left behind. Our hearts are broken by this unexpected loss. She was truly one of a kind and to be loved by her was to be truly blessed.
Carrie was born on August 29, 1974, in New Brighton, PA. and is the daughter of the late Anthony Mangano and Colleen Burkett. Carrie loved spending time with her daughters, family, and friends. She loved fiercely, deeply and although at times she could be strong-willed her heart was always in the right place. She loved trips to Disney, taking her daughters to the zoo, and walking her dog Bronx. Carrie always looked forward to and enjoyed cookouts, football games, and holidays with the family. We take comfort in knowing that Carrie is now at peace surrounded by light.
In addition to her mother and father, she was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather William H. Nye, paternal grandparents Louis and Kathleen Mangano; father-in-law, John Mendenhall; stepfather, Terry Burkett; uncle, Louis Mangano, Jr.
