Carol (Bushey) Kappert, 79, of Titusville, FL, formerly of Glastonbury, CT, beloved wife of Charles “Chuck” Kappert, passed away peacefully on October 11, 2020. Carol was born in Hartford on March 22, 1941 and was the daughter of the late Raymond and Helen (Balser) Bushey. Carol worked for the Pratt and Whitney Division of United Aircraft in East Hartford Connecticut where she and Chuck met. After having her first child she retired to become a full-time homemaker. Carol taught religious education classes at St. Dunstan’s Church in Glastonbury and organized a Bridge Marathon to raise money for the church. Carol’s hobbies included bridge, bowling, macramé, cross stitch, and floral arranging. She was also an avid sports fan and loved the Boston Red Sox and UConn basketball. In their retirement years, Carol and Chuck were blessed to enjoy winters in FL and summers in the mountains of NC with their much loved PBGV. Most of all, Carol was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Carol was preceded in death by her parents, and daughter Julie Kappert. She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Chuck Kappert, sons, Jeff Kappert (Mary-Elizabeth) of Jacksonville, FL and Jay Kappert of Melbourne, FL.

I babysat for the Kapperts when they lived on Knollwood Drive in Glastonbury so I clearly remember Carol. She was vivacious and beautiful . I was saddened when I learned that Julie died and came upon her grave at Neipsic cemetery when walking my dogs. I wondered why I never saw flowers on her grave so I left some once in a while and now will continue to do so for both Julie and Carol since the family lives far away. In my memory Carol will forever be the young wife and mother as I knew her.
