Carolyn Margaret Chappell (nee Oakshott), of Mount Laurel, NJ passed away on Monday, April 13, 2020. She was 79 years of age.

Mrs. Chappell was born in Queens, NY to Eric and Elizabeth Oakshott (nee Nederost). She had been a longtime resident of Mount Laurel, for 46 years. Mrs. Chappell worked as a school teacher, at J.W. Lily Elementary School, in Blackwood, NJ, before her retirement in 2002. She was a devout Roman Catholic and was an active parishioner of Saint John Neumann Church, in Mount Laurel, where she sang in the church choir. In her leisure time, she enjoyed music, travel, and playing bridge.

Mrs. Chappell was preceded in death by her sister, Rosalind Pehoski; and her brother in law, Barry Pehoski. Surviving are her beloved husband, Robert L. Chappell; children, Stephen Chappell (Ginny) and Cynthia Desderio (Tony); and grandchildren, Julia Desderio, Kayla Chappell, Katherine Desderio and sister, Janet Ross (William).

Out of respect and concern for public safety, the family has chosen to schedule a memorial mass at a later date. Memorial donations, in Carolyn’s name can be made to Saint John Neumann Church, 560 Walton Avenue, Mount Laurel, NJ 08054.

Karen and I want to express our deepest condolences to Bob and his family on the passing of Carolyn. It is so sad to see a cherished friend and lovely person leave us but we know that her kindness, devotion to God and her deep faith has found her in a better place where she can continue to intercede to Christ for us who grieve her loss. The first and best cruise we took in our lives was in 1995 with Bob and Carolyn on the Celebrity Meridian to Bermuda. The entire trip was filled with memorable moments, fun and joy not only because it was our first cruise but mostly because we had the pleasure of Carolyn and Bob to share it with. Carolyn, we will miss you in our Chappell-Carr-Madison-Rodrigues dinner outings, we will miss you in the St John Neumann Choir and Parish activities, but we will never forget you and the joy and brightness you brought to our lives. Bob, we are always here for you, whatever your needs.
