Obituary of Karol K. Moretta

Karol (Kemp) Moretta, 79, of Manchester passed away unexpectedly at home on Sunday, March 13, 2022. She was the beloved wife of Robert W. Moretta.


Born in Hartford, Karol was the daughter of the late John W. Kemp and Lillian (Frissel) Carter and her stepfather George C. Carter. As children, the Kemp sisters were deeply connected – sharing bedrooms, bathrooms, secrets, competitive moments and adventures – all the while caring and protecting each other. Karol’s warm heart and living spirit made for a strong, connective tissue. Karol was a fiercely loving and kind mother and wife. She was a resident of Manchester for most of her life and was a former resident of Hebron for several years as well. Karol was an artist utilizing many different medium types for many years.


In addition to her husband, she is survived by her son Patrick Vickers of ME, her daughter Angelyn Vickers of Haddam, her four grandchildren Elysia Kloo, Justin, Andrew and Christian Favreau, two great grandchildren Jeffrey and Ezëlia Kloo, her two sisters Kristine Loughlin of Wallingford and Joann and brother in law Peter Smulski of New Britain, stepsister Linda Calabrese of Tolland, stepbrother George Carter, and many nieces and nephews that loved her very much.
