LOWVILLE/CROGHAN- Carol H. Loconti, 75, formerly of Croghan, died late Saturday evening, October 24, 2020, at the Lewis County Residential Healthcare Facility.

Carol was born on December 30, 1944, in Watertown, New York, to the late Adrian and Grace Paté Henry.  She attended Father Leo Memorial School and graduated from St. Joseph’s Academy in Malone, New York, in 1962.  She attended Utica School of Business and then worked for Mele Manufacturing in Utica as an IBM operator before her marriage.  On November 14, 1964, she married Joseph A.
