Lois Elaine Mauro
June 21, 1928 – October 5, 2018
Lois E. Mauro, nee Paliwoda, 90 years old, died in the care of Connecticut Hospice on Friday, October 5th, 2018. Her last days were in the company and thoughts of the people whom she loved so well—her husband, Joseph; her children, Joe, Jaime, Jason and Jill; her grandchildren, Chris, Tracy, Isaac, Phoebe, Noah and Ella; her beloved children in-law, Sue, Mary Beth, Amy, Paul (Lois was pre-deceased by her oldest son John)—people for whom she was a fierce advocate and moral example all of her life. Lois was a marvel at everything she did, from educating her children, to quilting, to caning chairs. She was a master gardener, a chef who could always conjure “Ratatouille moments,” a generous, humble advocate for the poor and disenfranchised. Her gentleness, toughness, devotion and loving patience cannot be conveyed in the few words of an obituary, but those she leaves behind hope that we echo her virtues and commitments as we make our difficult way forward. A memorial mass in celebration of Lois’s life will be held at 11am, Saturday, October 20th, at Saint Margaret Church in Madison, CT. Any donations to Connecticut Hospice, Branford, CT, are well deserved.
