Mary (Garofano) DeFerrari, 89, of East Haven passed away peacefully at Connecticut Hospice on March 7. She was born Oct. 10, 1929, in Bridgeport to John and Ethel (Bodnar) Garofano. She is survived by two loving children, Joan Pietruszka (Robert) of Northford and Edward DeFerrari of East Haven. Mary is also survived by her three grandchildren, Michael Pietruszka (Jennifer), Michele Hungerford (Dan), and Steven Pietruszka (Krystal); and seven great-grandchildren. Mary is preceded in death by her parents; husband Hector DeFerrari (2007); daughter and son-in-law Nancy and Dave Vollero; and three brothers, Pat, Ciro, and Steve Garofano.
Mary worked at Hospice for 22 years and brought a smile to many during difficult times. She was previously employed in the banking industry for more than 20 years. Mary was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandma, and GG (as her great-grandkids lovingly called her). She enjoyed gardening, watching GSN, and her time with her former dogs Cookie and Crystal. Mary was always ready for a trip to Foxwoods or an event with her family.
The family received friends on March 12 at the Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home, 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven. Her funeral procession left Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home on March 13 for a Mass of Christian burial in St. Pio of Pietrelcina Parish of the Church of Our Lady of Pompeii, 355 Foxon Rd., East Haven, followed by Committal at All Saints Mausoleum. Donations may be made to Connecticut Hospice, 100 Double Beach Rd., Branford, CT 06405, in memory of Mary DeFerrari.
