Carol Dildine Obituary



Carol Dildine, 83, of Fernandina Beach, FL, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 13, 2024.

Carol was born in Jersey City, NJ, and moved to Fernandina Beach in 2005. She is a member of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church.

She graduated from Douglas College at Rutgers University and was a devoted Home Economics teacher for over 35 years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles R. and Dorothy Thiele Diaz; stepfather, Edmund Diaz, Jr; stepbrother, Edmund Diaz III; stepsister Lorraine Diaz Altemose; and her son, Kort Miller.

Carol is survived by her husband of 44 years, Gary Dildine; two sons, Lance Miller (Cyndi McCloskey) and Eric Miller (Terry Miller); brother, Rick Thiele (Gretchen), Carol Diaz and grandchildren, Alex, Joshua, Jessica, Daniel, Sarah, Tarrah, Darion, Riece and Garret.

Carol cherished time with her children and grandchildren, often attending their many performances and competitions. She was a voracious reader, avid gardener, and the biggest General Hospital fan you’ll ever know. She shared her passion for sewing throughout her teaching career with her students. After retiring, she often had multiple knitting and sewing projects in the works at any given time. Carol and Gary always looked forward to their many vacations, especially cruising throughout the Caribbean.
