Maria Giovanna Beaudoin
June 24, 1925 – March 1, 2019
Maria “Jenny” (Tomeo) Beaudoin died after a brief illness in Vernon, Connecticut on Friday, March 1st, 2019 at the age of 93. She is survived by her sister Rose Plenzio of East Hartford, daughter Denise Beaudoin-Brown, and son-in-law Christopher Brown, of Stafford, CT; granddaughter Michelle Fasolo of Vernon, CT, grandson Paul Fasolo and, “Her Cats”, Alma & Kitten, all of East Hartford. Maria is also survived by her son in Vero Beach, FL, Joseph Beaudoin and his wife Patricia, and her grandsons Joseph Beaudoin Jr and Robert Beaudoin. Along with her twin sister, Maria was born on June 24, 1925 in Hartford, CT to Gilda & James Tomeo. They enjoyed life living within a large Italian family. During WW2, Maria began work at Pratt & Whitney riveting aircraft fighter planes. She eventually moved onto Underwood Typewriter where she met the love of her life, Florido J. Beaudoin. Together they raised two children. Home and Family were everything to them both, and Maria worked tirelessly to create a perfect home environment from being the first person up in the morning making breakfast and lunches, to being the last one to bed making sure everything was spotless, to hosting countless holidays, birthday parties, and summer cookouts by the pool. Maria took immense pleasure from the simplest things in life, from spending time with her grandchildren and grand-nieces and -nephews, to playing cards, much anticipated Disney trips, and really big earrings. The latter along with her trademark big hair and ready smile quickly made her a favorite resident amongst the Vernon Manor staff. She will be missed by many and forgotten by none. Private funeral service and entombment will be held at the convenience of the family. There are no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Alzheimer's Association, 200 Executive Blvd., Suite 4B, Southington, CT 06489 - https://www.alz.org/nca/donate. The D’ESOPO-East Hartford Memorial Chapel, 30 Carter Street, East Hartford has been entrusted with the care of the funeral arrangements.

to my dear auntie jenny; not being able to pay my last respects to you; i hope the following, in some small way, shows how much you were, and still loved by all.
whenever you entered a room, your infectious smile, and great sense of humor, lit up the room. family was, and is still the most important thing in this whole wide world. family gatherings, be it birthday, holiday or whatever, were always the place to be.
together, with your sisters, auntie rosie, auntie teresa, and your 2 brothers, my dad joseph, and my godfather, uncle dominic, brought a feeling and togetherness that will live on through the ages.
with your husband, uncle joe, you showed everyone what a happily married couple should be. even in your later years, after uncle joe's passing, when i visited you at home, you couldn't do enough for me.
making me lunch, offering a cup of coffee, even though you earned the right to have others wait on you, it wasn't your way. you always had to do for others.
my fondest memories of you are when you called to uncle joe, sometimes you would call him by name, BUT, sometimes you would yell out " hey beaudoin " !! that always brought a smile to my face.
and when there was a difference of opinion, you would always say " you're for the birds " !! i still can't figure out what that means.
to your family, my cousins denise and joe, to auntie rosie, my deepest sympathies and condolences from my wife donna and my family.
sincerely; nephew peter j tierinni
