Carlena Palmateer

May 9, 1962 — June 7, 2021

Carlena Palmateer of Accord, NY, passed away on Monday, June 7, 2021. She was 59 years old. Carlena was born on May 9, 1962 in Hartford, CT; she was the daughter of Carl and Maria (Bridle) Wilson.

Carlena was a selfless, kind hearted, compassionate woman who had more love in her heart then most. She always put others first. She had so many passions in life; from doing her garden with her granddaughters to crocheting something for everyone. No one was ever hungry when Carlena was around, she made sure of that. Her love for her family was so indescribable. There truly are not enough words to describe this wonderful caring woman. We will always remember the way her smile lit up a room when she walked in. This is not a goodbye, it’s until we meet again.

“Until we meet again”

Carlena is survived by her loving husband, Robert Palmateer, her loving parents Carl and Maria; siblings, Carl Wilson Jr and Tammy Amlong; loving children, Christopher Vantassell, Summer Vantassell and Mike Depuy, Samantha Vantassell and Joseph Dirr, Darren Palmateer and Danielle Palen, Amanda Palmateer and Ryan Watts, Megan Palmateer and Matthew Coney; her pride and joy, grandchildren, NovaLee and Devin Palmateer, Lincoln Palmateer, Hudson Dirr and Carter Watts along with all the unofficial adopted children and grandchildren and many other loving family and friends.
