Michele F. Jennings
South Meriden, Clinton
Michele F. Jennings, 56, of South Meriden and Clinton, loving wife of Timothy Jennings for 31 years, passed away peacefully Feb. 8 at Connecticut Hospice.
She was born in Meriden on Dec. 7, 1963, a daughter of the late Michael and Barbara (Gostyla) Petrucelli. Michele graduated from Mark T. Sheehan High School and also attended Bay Path College. She worked at Colony Savings Bank as secretary to the president, A Better Way, Salka and Sons as a bookkeeper, and Form-All Plastics in charge of finance.
In addition to her husband Timothy, she is survived by her brother Michael Petrucelli of Wallingford; and her sister Marcy Deubel and her husband Michael of Cheshire. Michele is survived by her very close and special nieces and nephew Taylor and Jordyn Deubel, and Briana and Michael Petrucelli; and by her nieces Melissa and Jessica Okolotkiewicz and Tabatha (Chad) Bell. She is also survived by her brothers-in-law Patrick (Susan), Jeffrey (Shannon), and Christopher (Karen) Jennings. Besides her parents, Michele was predeceased by her nephew Jeremy Jennings.
Michele was quite the adventurer, traveling to St. Kits, Paradise Island, Bahamas, St. Lucia, Antigua, Turks and Caicos, Las Vegas, Italy, Amsterdam, down the Rhine River, then to France, Germany, and Switzerland. Michele then traveled to Athens, Greece, in September on her 31st anniversary, on to Corfu, Greece, Montenegro, Ljubljano, Slovenia, Croatia, and Venice, Italy. But her favorite place was her beach house in Clinton, her happy place.
