Alice Fallo (82) reunited with her husband Ed (Ettor) Fallo on March 23, 2022
She was born in Hartford, the daughter of the late Roy Bosworth and Dorothy Smith Taft, and grew up in Bolton, where she shared fond memories of playing softball in the pastures using cow patties as bases.
After graduating from Manchester High School, she attended the New Britain General Hospital School of Nursing where two major life events occurred; she met her husband of 21 years and her dedication to her profession began.
She spent the majority of her career at the New Britain General Hospital in the dialysis unit and was a member of the American Nephrology Nurses Association. She also worked for the Bristol Visiting Nurses Association and Laurelcrest Preparatory School in Bristol.
During her tenure at NBGH, her biggest priority was the patient and their family. She was a natural at explaining complex issues in an easy to understand manner which had a calming effect on her patients and their families. Laughter was her best medicine. In order to entertain her patients while they dialyze, she asked them who was their favorite singer. The next day, they were happily surprised when their favorite nurse showed up dressed as Dolly Parton
To her friends and family , she was the life of the party. Her energy was infectious and her sense of humor could made you laugh for days. She carried that humor right to the end of her life. Before she passed, when she was asked what she would like to drink, she quickly said, "I'll have a bloody Mary"
She liked to keep busy and had many interests such as traveling, attending musicals at local theaters, playing cards and board games, scrapbooking, solving jigsaw puzzles and spending time with friends and family. She was also and avid Disney fan and animals lover.
She leaves behind her daughter Shelly Fallo of Brookline, MA, her sons, Scott Fallo of Las Vegas, NV, Steven Fallo and son in law David Pearson of Quincy, MA, her sister, Ruth Lopes of King City, CA, a special nephew, Jon Bowtruczyk of Southington, CT and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
