A devout Catholic, Mary was a long time faithful communicant of Blessed Sacrament Church, now St. Edmund Campion Parish, East Hartford. Mary had enjoyed painting scenery using oil and acrylic paints in which she would sign them all “Domenica” in the bottom corner. Mary created and designed her own women’s clothing and fashionable hats also known as, “Hats Fashioned by Domenica”. Her favorite outing was going to tea events dressed up in her own fashionable dresses and hats. Mary will be forever missed and remembered by her family. This includes her sister Gina DeFranzo, and Mary’s children; Carol-Ann Heinz and her boyfriend Richard Jones of East Hartford, Eileen Hudgik of Cannon Beach, Oregon, Linda Heinz and her partner Steve Boutelle of East Hartford, Dave R.
