Corrinne Carlevato

Corrinne (Lomheim) Carlevato, age 97, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, passed away on May 25, 2024 in the presence of loving family members at her residence in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. She was born February 13, 1927, in Lead South Dakota to Chris and Fannie Lomheim, immigrants from Scandinavia who came to America to work at the Homestake gold mine.

Corrinne lived her early life in the small mining town of Lead which is where she met her future husband. She had a beautiful voice, singing in high school productions, at weddings and funerals. While attending high school, she helped care for her nephews while their father was overseas during WWII. She also worked in the mines as a volunteer preparing mineral resources necessary to support the war effort. After graduating from Lead High School, she attended the National College of Business in Rapid City, SD. She later worked as a stenographer for a civil engineer in Rapid City.

She was married to Harold Carlevato, on July 11, 1953. They raised three children together, Diane Neugebauer (Chuck), John Carlevato (Debby) and Paul Carlevato (Annette). Harold’s job with DuPont required him to travel and relocate frequently. They moved 11 times during their marriage but she was most fond of her time in Wilmington, DE and family gatherings in Stone Harbor, NJ.

Corrinne was known as a great listener and had a big heart filled with compassion and understanding. Wherever they went she was very involved with church work and caring for children and the elderly. She contributed her time and treasure to many charities and helping others. She had a great sense of humor and a beautiful smile. Corrinne made friends easily and enjoyed lots of activities like cooking, baking, sewing, painting and playing bridge. She and Harold enjoyed traveling together, especially their trips to Italy, Finland and Norway. However, her most important job was being a loving Wife and Mother. She took great care of her children - packing, moving and enrolling them in new schools and always exposing them to new experiences while instilling a constant sense of love. This fostered an environment of family, responsibility and independence for which her children are forever grateful.

Corrinne was preceded in death by her husband, parents and her 6 siblings; Katherine Finnen, Andrea Peters, Art Lomheim, Chris Lomheim, Jr, James Lomheim and Clara Schell. She will be dearly missed by her 3 children and their spouses, 8 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren as well as extended family in the US and Finland.

A memorial will be held July 19th 1:00 PM at Concordia Lutheran Church on Silverside Road Wilmington, DE. She will be reunited with her husband during a private burial at the Delaware National Memorial Veterans Cemetery in Bear, DE. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made in the name of Corrinne Carlevato to the South Dakota Mines CARA, 330 E. Kansas City Street, Rapid City, SD 57701 or Ascension Lutheran Church, 1701 W. Caley Ave, Littleton, CO 80120.
