Mrs. Lena (Adorno) Bazzano of Luther Ridge, 628 Congdon St W, Middletown, formerly West Hartford, died Monday December 28th from a sudden illness.
Lena was the wife of the late Pat Bazzano of West Hartford who went to be with the Lord January 12, 1985.
Lena was born in Middletown Connecticut, the daughter of the late Sebastian & Carmelina Adorno and sister to the late Florentina Slahtosky. Lena is survived by her four children: Rody S. Bazzano of Cromwell, Thomas P. Bazzano of Newington, Sally A. Avery of Mystic, and Carla M. Bosco of Bristol, five grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
Lena was involved in the Catholic Charismatic renewal with Father Bill McCarthy since the 1970’s. In recent years Lena was a member of St Gregory’s Church in Bristol, and she also attended Calvary Assembly of God Church in Southington.
“Lee” Bazzano was first and foremost a Mom and Grandma. She was also a Christian, wife, daughter and nurse. But the largest part of Lee’s life was given to raising, nurturing and praying for her family. She was our biggest fan, greatest admirer, and fiercest advocate. Lee had a strong undeniable faith in Jesus that she was always eager to share with others.
The funeral will be held January 7, 2021, Thursday morning at 10:30 am at St Gregory’s Church, 235 Maltby Street, Bristol followed by a mass of Christian burial at Mount St Benedict’s Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to Lena’s favorite charity are suggested, (CBN/ 700 Club), Orphan’s Promise, organization Id #54-0678752 http://www.orphanspromise.org, 977 Centerville TPKE Virginia Beach, VA 23463.
Due to Covid we will hold a reception in the summer to share memories and celebrate Lena Bazzano’s life once restrictions are eased.
