Caroline R. “Carol” Scarborough, 82, of Williamsport, passed away, Saturday, February 16, 2019 at UPMC Susquehanna, Williamsport. She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Terry D. Scarborough, on October 31, 2018.
Born September 5, 1936, in Renovo, she was a daughter of the late Stephen and Rose (Pitonyak) Bendick.
Carol graduated first of her class from Renovo High School. She worked as a seamstress at Weldon’s and took great pride in having always sewn the sample clothing for New York City.
Carol was a seriously independent woman who enjoyed reading, babysitting her grandchildren and sewing, even making her children’s clothes when they were younger. She could always be found wearing her red lipstick or offering you a fresh baked brownie when you stopped by for a visit. She enjoyed the beach, waterskiing and especially loved spending time with her family at their camp along Pine Creek.
Surviving are her three children, Terry J. Scarborough (Leslie), of Galway, NY, Tammy R. Kerstetter (Brian), of Lewisburg, and Tracy A. Billings (Jason), of Elizabethtown, and seven grandchildren, Emily A. and Thomas J. Scarborough, Tylar A. and Carter A. Kerstetter, and Connor J., Kyle S., and Quinn P. Billings.
In addition to her parents and husband she was preceded in death by a brother Leonard Bendick, and two sisters, Janice Woerner and Patty Kentoski.
