Carol E. Pirrotta

Carol E. (Beifuss) Pirrotta of Washington Township, NJ, passed away Monday, November 15, 2021 at the age of 73 after a long battle with cancer. Carol was born and raised in Camden, NJ, and joins her parents, John and Estella Beifuss, and her brother, John Beifuss Jr., in heaven.


Carol is survived by her husband of 49 years, Andrew Pirrotta, their sons and their families: Aaron, his wife Kelsey and their daughters Lena and Lucia; David, his wife Erin, and their children Grant, Zachary, and Margaret. 


Carol graduated from Woodrow Wilson HS and Douglass College (1970) at Rutgers University earning scholarships and paying her own way through despite traditional values. Carol worked at Camden Social Services where she met Andy before taking on the Director role in 1985 at the Gloucester County Board of Social Services and led that organization for 23 years. She strived to get all residents the help they needed and in retirement continued to find ways to help others even as as she raised her sons and arranged care for her mother and brother. She led her life treating everyone with respect and dignity. 

One way Carol showed her love for family was through food. Food was love. She enjoyed cooking big holiday dinners and providing a steady supply of chocolate and desserts.
