Edith Rosemary Carretta

Alliance

Edith “Ede” Rosemary Carretta, age 74, of Alliance, passed away on February 14, 2022.

She was born on March 22, 1947 in Alliance to Ernest V. and Parma J. (Soviero) Carretta.

Ede received her Bachelor of Science in Special Education from St. Mary’s College, returning to dedicate her 37-year career to her beloved students at Marlington High School. She was a devout member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and the Catholic community. She cared deeply about her hometown of Alliance, and enjoyed volunteering at Alliance Woman’s Club, Alliance Catholic Worker, and belonged to the Alliance Area Retired Teacher Association. Ede cherished her many pets, and for those she couldn’t give a home, she found time to visit and play with them through volunteering at the local animal shelters. She attended book clubs and other events at Rodman Public Library, where she was well-known, and shared her passion for reading with others through the YWCA book community.

Those left to cherish her memory are her nephews Brandon B. (Hannah) Carretta and Eric K. (Haley) Carretta, and her great-niece, Caroline.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, E. Craig Carretta.

A Memorial Mass will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Alliance on Saturday, March 12th at 10:00 a.m. with visitation one hour prior. Rev. G. David Weikart will officiate.

Arrangements are entrusted to Cassaday-Turkle-Christian Funeral Home 75 South Union Ave Alliance, Ohio 44601.
