Wilma (Maurer) Carbonetti, 92, formerly of West Yarmouth and Mansfield, passed away at her home in Mashpee on Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Wilma was born in Clinton, Connecticut on June 12, 1920, to William and Emma (Scheuermann) Maurer. She graduated from Morgan High School in 1938. On April 6, 1942, she married the love of her life, Hugo A. Carbonetti, who passed away in 2005.

Wilma lived in Mansfield from 1942 until 1971. While raising her children, she was very active in the community, especially the Girl Scouts, and worked with her husband in their business, Carbonetti's Market. She was well known for hosting wonderful parties, serving delicious meals along with her beautifully decorated cakes and baked goods. After moving to West Yarmouth in 1971, Wilma enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, taking adult education classes and perfecting her love of crafts. She was also employed at Bed and Bath and Jordan Marsh.

Wilma was the loving mother of four daughters: Anne Atkins and her husband Kenneth of North Hampton NH; Susan Carlone and her husband Gene of Durham NC; Jane Cardin and her husband Robert of Newnan GA; and Jean Sawicki and her husband Michael of Mashpee. She leaves behind 11 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Wilma also leaves many caring nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her sister, Katherine Cettomai and two brothers, William and Robert Maurer.

We would like to extend special thanks to the wonderful and caring folks at Hope Hospice for their support.

Arrangements are being made by the Bolea-Amici Funeral Home, 115 North Main Street in Mansfield. A Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday March 23 at St. Mary's Church 330 Pratt Street (Rte. 106) Mansfield at 10:3am. Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend. Interment in St. Mary's Cemetery.

To Wilma' s family...I am so sorry for your loss. My family lived next-door to yours for many years and I remember how nice both your mother and father were. Carbonetti's Market was always a part of our life--the homemade Italian sausages were always part of my birthday celebration. My thoughts and prayers are with you. GerAldine (Allard) Tripp

James (Jim) Allard To the family of Wilma; my deepest condolences on your lose. I, too, grew up next door to the old homestead and have many fine memories of both Wilma and Hugo. I also spent several hours over the years in the cherry tree savoring the fruits which were not as good as the sausages from the store! May the Lord bless all of you and care for you in your time of need.

To Anne, Sue, Jane & Jean: - Our thoughts & sympathies are with you at this time. Your mother is fondly remembered by all of us - she was always so pleasant to us, as was your dad. (didn't know of his passing until I saw this). Though time & faces have changed Mansfield from what we all knew, nothing can erase the great memories of growing up in such a close neighborhood with such great neighbors. I'll forever miss the cherry tree you had & the mulberry tree we had, & will smile every time I recall watching you girls practice cheerleading on the manicured lawn. Take comfort in knowing you have others who share your loss, though never quite as deeply as you feel at this time. Keep in your hearts & thoughts only the best memories. Sincerely, Bill Allard
