Meg Carbone Of Quogue Dies On March 1

Mar 4, 2019 12:19 PM

Meg Carbone of Quogue died at Long Island Jewish Hospital on March 1, 2019, of complications from CLL, a type of leukemia. She was 63.

Her relationship with the disease over recent years placed her in intensive care several times, and while these bouts weakened her, they also prepared her. Survivors said she drew on inner light and spent her periods of good health by communicating her feelings and intentions, and celebrating the accomplishments of her family and extended network of friends, adding that her light came from a purity of spirit, an inherently good energy, that she used as a starting point in daily life throughout her years. Whether teaching the young children that she loved, directing summer camps, working as a professional ski instructor, or as a wife and mother, she started from a place of honesty and intention, and made her world from there.

Together with her husband, Tim, she built a life within means that they balanced to maximize time as a united pair, and later as a cohesive family unit. As school teachers, she and her husband lived by a schedule that allowed them to split time between Quogue, where they met, and Okemo, Vermont, where they spent weekends. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her two sons, Kurt and Bradley.

She learned openness growing up with three brothers in Yonkers and through her extended network of cousins, survivors said. Always open to welcoming new people into her life, she added to this “family” throughout her life as she shared her love with friends, with families that she taught in school and on the slopes, and with the families and friends of her sons.

She had a passion for aesthetics. In her youth, she channeled energy into an arts education and worked in advertising graphic design. Over time, this energy evolved into an attention to detail that she used to construct her personal style, her approach to work, the organization of her home, and her decorative celebration of the seasons and holidays. She loved the creativity and stimulus that came from attending shows, traveling, and being with new people. She was an accomplished home cook, and carried her aesthetic sensibility into the preparation of simple, wonderful meals for groups that ranged in size from two to 20.

Survivors said she was very proud of her husband and promoted him as an example of hard work, honesty, and integrity. Together, they taught these values to their sons and community.

A wake was held at Werner Rothwell Funeral Home in, Westhampton Beach on Tuesday. A funeral service was held on Wednesday at the Church of the Immaculate Conception on Quiogue.
