Obituary for Carole Kleinotas
Kleinotas, Carole Anne, 67, of Valrico, Florida.
After a long hard battle with cancer, on July 11, 2017, as she was surrounded by her loving family, Carole entered in to the arms of her Lord and Savior. Carole Anne Griffin was born March 24, 1950 in Boston, MA. On April 27, 1968 she married her best friend and soulmate Allen J. Kleinotas. They were blessed with 50 years together. They resided in Pelham, New Hampshire where they had their four children. In 1979 they moved to the Tampa Bay Area. Carole was a very loving and caring mother and cherished her children. Her love for the Lord led her to serve in her church, where she served on the Alter Guild and sang in the choir. In 2000, Carole and Al opened a family business, “Car Wash on the Greens” in Valrico, Florida. Carole enjoyed working at the car wash where she met many people in the community. She did many outreach projects, such are collecting toys for area children at Christmas and charity car washes just to name a few. She touched many lives of the youth in the community by giving them the opportunity to work at the car wash. She treated them as family and was always giving them love and support. She loved getting to know them. Carole had to retire due to her illness, but she always wanted to know how things were at the car wash. Carole is at peace and is no longer suffering. She leaves the world a better place and will be missed by all. Carole was preceded in death by her parents Jane and Francis Griffin. She is survived by her husband, Allen J. Kleinotas, brothers, Francis and William (Billy) Griffin, sister Mary Hooker (Gordon), brother in law Francis B. Kleinotas.
