Marie M. Barese 94, of Branford, formerly of East Haven, passed away on Jan. 9 at Branford Hills Health Care Center. She was born on July 7, 1925, to George and Matilda Pelote in Shirley, Massachusetts.
Marie is survived by her son Joseph Barese, Jr., (Evelyn) of Guilford; her three devoted grandchildren, Paige Labelle (Brian) of Guilford, Joseph Barese III (David) of Naugatuck, and Trevor Barese (Kajal) of Boston, Massachusetts; along with her seven great-grandchildren, Olivia Labelle, Isabella Labelle, Zachary Labelle, Sophia Labelle, all of Guilford, and Dawson Nunner, Hayden Nunner, and Gavin Nunner of Pennsylvania.

After graduating high school Marie worked at Fort Devens, where she met a young soldier by the name of Joe Barese and soon after the war they were married during a snowstorm that closed down everything except the church. Shortly after, they moved to Connecticut and had Joseph Jr. They spent most of their lives in East Haven, then moved to Branford.
Marie was an avid Red Socks fan since her father brought her to her first game as a young child. Later she added UConn women’s basketball and the Patriots to her favorite teams list. Marie was a loving mother and grandmother and will be missed.
Marie’s family would like to thank the staff of Branford Hills for their devotion and care for Marie. During the time she stayed with them, Branford Hills became her home.
