Connie was a lovely person and a fun person. I worked with her for several years in the Concord Office of DCYF. She worked in Adoption and in Child Protective Services and was always an advocate for children. We missed her when she left as I know her family misses her now. I am so sorry for your loss.

I have very fond memories of Connie as I worked with her at the Division of Welfare/Division For Children and Youth for many years. She was a great supervisor and teacher. My condolences to her family.

Constance F. (Connie) Aranosian, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully in Glastonbury CT on June 9th, 2020 at the age of 90.
Born in New York City in 1929, Connie Aranosian, née Alperin, graduated in 1951 from the University of Wisconsin. As a young woman, she was a talented opera soprano, singing in New York and Europe.
In 1962 she married Richard Aranosian, with whom she recently celebrated their 58th anniversary. Connie and Richard settled in Concord NH, where they raised 3 children. She worked as a Supervisor for the Merrimack County (NH) Division of Child and Family Services.
In the 1980’s, Connie and Richard founded CARA Antiques, specializing in antique European pottery. They relocated to Newtown, PA and spent many winters in Naples, FL. They participated in many large antique shows throughout the US, and they had many good friends in the antiques community. In addition to her love of opera, NYC, history and politics, she was an avid reader and a fan of Boston sports.
She is survived by her husband, Richard Aranosian; her sons Chris Aranosian, his wife Elizabeth Aranosian and grandson Beau Aranosian; and Richard Aranosian Jr, his wife Shushanik Atoyan and granddaughter Annabelle Aranosian; her daughter Lisa Hansen; and nieces Betsy Fitzgerald, Susan West, and Nancy Forrester.

The Aranosian family wishes to convey their deepest thanks and appreciation to Athena Home Health and Hospice and all of the staff at The Hearth at Glastonbury who loved her and took such good care of her.
