It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Carol Ann Derzak of Centreville, VA. She passed peacefully surrounded by her devoted husband, loving children, and adoring grandsons. The love from her family and friends supported her during a valiant ll year battle with breast cancer. She was vibrant until her last breath at 61 years young.

Carol was a pint-sized super woman with a huge spirit; she was opinionated, determined, and cherished by all who knew her. She made friends easily and everywhere and always had a smile on her face. She leaves behind a life of strength, will, and determination; she instilled these traits in those who loved her and that is her greatest legacy. Carol is survived by her husband, Michael Derzak, three daughters, Amy and Chris Dux, Jamie Breme, snd Constance and Jon Lena, and 3 grandsons, Hayden, Shane, and Marcus Dux.

Memories Timeline


  1. My condolences go out to Aunt Carol loving husband and her daughters Amy, Jamie and Connie. I am gonna miss her very much. I remember one time that when I was little she had this ring and I took it and hid the ring and I was the only one who knew where it was and boy she was upset with me but then eventually forgave me for it.The last time I had talked to her she asked me why I was still up late and she told me to get to bed and I said why and she said she still thought of me still a young kid. I will miss her with all of my heart.

  2. I am very sorry to hear of Carols passing. She has certainly fought a long battle. Prayers for the whole family. Rest in peace dear lady. Elsie

  3. Carol, I will always remember my favorite neighbor and friend, especially when our kids were young back in "The Meadows" in Centreville. Ann-Marie Counselman Giannini, John Counselman, and I have wonderful memories of our friend, neighbor, and babysitter. We love you and will miss you terribly. Our prayers go out to Mike, Amy, Jamie, Connie and the grandchildren.

  4. Sorry to hear of you passing Aunt Carol, at least now you are no longer in any pain you are now, at home at peace….Now you can be with Angels and look down on everyone and just know that you were and always will be loved by everyone that you leave behind. Love Your Neice Lisa

  5. I only worked with Carol for two years, but she was a delight! She always had a smile on her face and she loved her jewelry-in fact I have a few pieces I got from her and when I wear them,I think of her.She was a gutsy lady and she hang in there. Now she has gone to the Lord to get some rest and we will miss her. God Bless Her.

  6. Carol and Mike were our neighbors for 12+ years. I remember when we met: Carol was in the window and Mike was on the roof of their house, working to improve it as they so often did. Carol told us she worked at Oakton HS, which was my recent FCPS assignment. They both took time to meet us–strangers who had just returned from NC. Although we liked the house, it was the authentic friendliness of Mike and Carol that sealed the deal on our becoming their next door neighbors. Carol was so strong and supportive over the years; with the love of her devoted Mike–I have seen very few couples equal the true love bond that those two demonstrated every day, through thick and thin. What a dynamic couple! They rescued us so many times–helping us with house stuff, advice for our daughters, quick, vital conversations in the pipestem. We’ll miss Carol forever, but we’ll also be eternally grateful for the 12+ years that we were privileged to have together.
