Carol Ann Frost, 71, passed away Monday, October 30, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in the Bronx, she was the daughter of Mary Ann Drago of Albany and the late Charles J. Brown and beloved wife of the late Jerome “Jerry” Frost, who died in 2014.
After high school, Carol studied acting and performed in small community theater. In her late teens, she relocated to the Capital District with her family and worked briefly as a dental assistant.
Carol married her adoring husband Jerry making his life complete. She was an incomparable wife and mother. Carol was an outgoing person who greeted everyone she passed, with her infectious smile and personality. Carol loved to visit Boston and despite her ties to The Bronx, she was a big Red Sox fan. She also enjoyed traveling abroad with her husband, especially to France, where they made several friends. She was a consummate hostess and organized first-class galas in her home. Her favorite time of year was Christmas when she could always be found swinging from her ladder decorating the tree around the clock while listening to Christmas music. She and Jerry built their dream home in Speigletown for their family, and some of her favorite times were spent with family around the swimming pool.
She was the devoted mother of Arthur Frost (Karen) of Poestenkill, Carl Frost (Janine) of Speigletown, Anya Frost of Wynantskill, Jonah Frost (Stephanie) of Naples, FL, and Jerome “Jay” Frost of Troy. Carol also leaves behind her adored grandchildren, Matthew, Taye, Hayden, Emily, Nicholas, Madeline, Carley, Luke and Nathan; her siblings, Rose Ann Brown, Barbara Drago and Dorianne Blanchard, and numerous nieces and nephews. Carol was greeted in Heaven by her husband Jerry; her father Charles; her brother Edward Drago; and her grandson, Joseph Frost.
Carol was a loving grandmother who enjoyed watching her children play Little League, football, and basketball. She was always the loudest fan! There was nothing Carol loved more than being a grandmother, often sporting her favorite sweatshirt that read “Grandma’s my name and spoiling’s my game.”
