The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

Virginia (Tammaro) Mingarelli, 84, of East Haven passed away June 17 at Connecticut Hospice in Branford. She was born Aug. 16, 1935, in New Haven to Mario and Carmela (Milano) Tammaro.

Virginia is survived by her children Pamela Rosa (Vincent) of East Haven and Mark Richter (Laura) of Stony Creek; eight grandchildren, Vincent Rosa, Jr.,(Karah), Sarah Rosa, Melissa Rosa, Lesley Richter, Bruce Richter (Sara), Liberato Pelosi (Stephanie), Cassandra Pelosi, and Danielle Inorio (Andrew); along with nine great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her son-in-law Pacifico Pelosi of Guilford, a sister, Marilyn O’Brien (Robert) of East Haven, and a brother, Richard Tammaro of Hamden. Virginia is preceded in death by her parents, husband Anthony Mingarelli (1997), and daughter Lisa Pelosi.

Virginia was the consummate Italian American mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and switched between roles effortlessly. She loved to cook for her family, serving Sunday meals for a lifetime. Sauce on Sunday, lasagna with meat or just cheese, and chicken soup for anyone not felling well. She hosted every Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, etc. She was employed for many years at Winchester Repeating Arms and retired from the Knights of Columbus in 2012 where she worked in membership records. She was a member of the Ladies Guild at our Lady of Pompeii church. She loved vacationing every year in Aruba with her sister. She was loved and gave love; she will truly be missed by all.

All were invited to attend a Mass of Christian burial on June 23 in St. Pio of Pietrelcina Parish at the Church of Our Lady of Pompeii, 355 Foxon Rd., East Haven, followed by Committal at All Saints Cemetery in North Haven. Funeral services were under the care of the Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home, 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven.
