Memorial for Mary Angela Speziale

Born in Hartford, CT on May 24, 1921
Departed on Apr. 7, 2017 and resided in Winsted, CT.


SPEZIALE – Mary Angela Speziale, 95, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 7, 2017 at her home. She was the devoted wife of the late Joseph Speziale for 40 years. Born May 24, 1921 in Hartford; the daughter of the late Joseph Sr., and Josephine (Mangiafico) Mazzarella.

Mary was a woman of prayer and faith. Praying the rosary for her children and grandchildren was part of her daily routine. She was a communicant of St. Joseph Church and a faithful supporter of parish and school activities. The most important thing in Mary's life was her family.

She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who found joy in everything she did. She loved to cook and always looked forward to making eggplant for her grandson Andrew every Saturday for lunch. Her famous homemade breads, pasta, sausage and meatballs were also a regular on the menu.

Mary also loved to entertain and often had friends stop to visit. Her door was always open and you consistently got greeted with a big smile and laughter.

She was a life long member of the Italian American Women's Club, a girl scout leader and enjoyed gathering with friends and family crocheting in the Sewing and Sewing and Chatter clubs. She loved to play cards and looked forward to her daily Rummikub games with her nieces. Mary was an independent, special lady who lived life on her own terms and will be deeply missed by those privileged to know her.

She is survived by three sons, Bob Speziale and partner Suzanne Dowd of Bethel, John T Speziale of Winsted, Richard Speziale and wife Jennifer of Winsted; and a daughter, Linda Barberet and husband Paul of Winsted; three sisters, Tina Evans, Olga Wolfe and Gloria Athorn; and one brother Tom Mazzarella; grandchildren, Theresa Speziale, Michelle Speziale, Sara Phillips and husband Randy, Peter Speziale, Andrew Speziale, Joseph Barberet, Jill Harriman and husband Paul, Marie Barberet, Michael Speziale, Nicholas Speziale and Nicole Speziale and fiancee Chris Wither; great grandchildren, Delaney Speziale, Rory Phillips and Eliza Harriman; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by infant son Joseph and son JoJo, and by two brothers, Joseph Jr., and Bobby.
