Carmen E. Rodriguez, 67, of Middletown, CT passed away on Sunday, July 2, 2023, after a short battle with cancer.

Carmen was strong-willed and stubborn at times, but she also had an enormous heart and a wonderful sense of humor. She was generous, loyal, and brave. She was clever and full to the brim of knowledge gained through all of her life experiences. As much as she loved her family, Carmen loved her pet cats the most, Cosmo and Gracie.
Carmen enjoyed her hobbies which include making hot sauce, art and crafts, and gardening. Carmen always said she did not want people crying during her funeral instead to celebrate her life.
