November 14, 1944June 18, 2020

Sharon Marie Adinolfi (née Lane) died peacefully in Cromwell, CT on June 18, 2020 at the age of 75. Sharon is survived by her husband, Salvatore Adinolfi of Clinton, CT; her sisters Marilyn Dooley of Sarasota, FL and Denise Adam of Venice, FL; her three children from her first marriage to Thomas Joseph Zane of East Haven, CT: daughter Kerry Anne Zane of Cromwell, CT, son Thomas Joseph Zane, Jr. of San Diego, CA, and his wife Rozanna and their three children Thomas Augustine, Kendric John, and Grace Elizabeth, and her son Stephen Patrick Zane of Manchester, CT, and his husband Daniel Champagne; her three step-children Salvatore Adinolfi Jr., Andrew Adinolfi, and Kelley Adinolfi; and numerous step-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends, most especially her PMAG girls. She is preceded in death by her sister Elaine Eifler, and her brother Frank Lane.

Sharon was born on November 14, 1944 in Derby, CT to Francis M. and Mary A. Lane. She married Salvatore in 1989. They lived together in East Haven, CT for nineteen years before moving to Clinton, CT in 2008.

Sharon was an avid Notre Dame football fan. Every game, she and Sal could be found shouting at the TV in support of all things Irish. She also enjoyed traveling, frequenting local wineries, and finding deals on more swans and pillows with which to decorate their home.

The family would like to send their sincere thanks to Dr. David Miner and the staff of DaVita Healthcare for all they did to keep Sharon comfortable, healthy, and in good spirits over the years, and Autumn Lake Healthcare at Cromwell for the comfort and care they gave Sharon during her final days.

Due to COVID-19, a private funeral will be held in Madison, CT, with a reception afterward at their home in Clinton. All are welcome to attend the reception in Clinton and celebrate Sharon’s life. Details will be provided soon. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Sharon’s name to the National Kidney Fund at www.Kidney.org.
