Carol Hurley Naccari passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her children on Friday, May 21, 2021. She was born on November 3, 1933 in New Orleans to John P. Hurley, Sr. and Alice D. Hurley. She was preceded in death by Joseph N. Naccari, her beloved and devoted husband of 47 years. Their love was a special bond that was felt by everyone who knew them. They met through family friends and married on July 22, 1959 at St. Pius X Catholic Church. She was also preceded in death by her only brother, John “Pat” Hurley, Jr, a devoted uncle to her five children. She was a resident of Lake Vista and a parishioner of St. Pius X in New Orleans for over 74 years. Carol, or “Meme” as she was lovingly known by her family, was a graduate of St. Mary’s Dominican High School. She also attended Loyola University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Education. Years later, Carol earned a Master’s degree in Education from Loyola University while raising her five children. Carol Naccari was a woman of many passions including that for teaching, giving, and socializing. Her passion for teaching was the source of much joy in her life as she touched the lives of so many students in New Orleans. Carol taught over 30 years in the Orleans Parish School System, including at Schaumberg Elementary School and later at Hynes Elementary School in Lakeview. After retiring from the public school system, Carol continued her passion for education in the Catholic school system. She worked as a substitute teacher at St. Pius X Catholic School and later worked as a full time teacher at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School on Canal Street until she retired in 2008. Her generosity and calling to give, never ceased. As an active parishioner of St. Pius X Catholic Church, Carol was always willing to spend time in the Adoration Chapel. As a Prayers for Priests participant, Carol offered prayers daily to show support and appreciation for the dedication of priests. She was an active member of the NAIM Conference chapter at St. Pius X Church. Carol and Joseph were lifelong, avid members of Four Fins of Loyola University. Carol often enjoyed socializing with friends or family at nice restaurants. She will always be remembered for her famous Christmas Eve parties that welcomed family and friends with open arms. For Meme, every season was an event to celebrate with loved ones. She will be sadly missed by her five children: Brian Naccari, M.D.(Maria), Jay Naccari (Dana), Melissa Naccari Adams (Rick), Bradley Naccari (Bridget), and Todd Naccari. She is also survived by 18 adoring grandchildren: Derek Naccari, M.D. (Brandi), Leigh-Ann Naccari, M.D., Kelsey Naccari Kelley (Michael), Marisa Naccari, Paige Naccari Baynham (Alex), Shane Naccari (Lindsey), Shannon Naccari Ulfers (Chris), Casey Naccari, Richard Adams, III, Zachary Adams, Hayden Adams, Blake Naccari, Brooke Naccari, Brynn Naccari, Cecilia Naccari, Patrick Naccari, Landry Naccari, and Adelea Naccari. She is also survived by 11 great grandchildren: Grayson Naccari, Oliver Naccari, Michael Kelley,III, Parker Baynham, Peyton Baynham, Charlee Naccari, Wyatt Naccari, Cooper Naccari, Avery Ulfers, Kameryn Ulfers, and Caden Ulfers.

Aunt Carol and a Uncle Joe were two of the most religious and upstanding people I've ever known. They were overly generous to anyone in need and will always remain as roll models to all who knew them. Rest In Peace, Aunt Carol, as you now join Uncle Joe, who has been awaiting your reunion.

Wishing you peace and comfort in these sad moments following your Mom’s passing. She was such a precious little lady who was obviously the true heart of her family. I pray that she is now seeing the face of God and watching over all of you today.
With warmest regards for your beautiful families, Brian and Jay... Fondly, Allison Giffin Talley

Carol was my father's first cousin.
Her mom (Aunt Alice) was my grandmother's
sister (Alma Dornan Tolivar).
Carol was a loving, generous cousin!
Her and Joe were two of the most loving and welcoming people I have know. Always available to support family. And yes, I do remember her Christmas Eve parties, and experience the growth and joy of our family.
I was approaching my 13 Birthday when Carol and Joe were married. They were always welcoming and inclusive to family.
Two words I can attribute to Carol and Joe...
Love and integrity!
She is missed. Love always cousin.
You have fought the good fight and kept the Faith!
