Olga C Cirillo
April 27, 1924 – January 28, 2019
NORWICH – Olga C. Cirillo, 94, gently slipped away from us and into the arms of her Lord on Monday while surrounded by her family at Greentree Manor in Waterford.
She was born in Norwich on April 27, 1924 to the late Dominic and Antoinette (Coletti) Tramontozzi. On April 3, 1948 she married her beloved husband Juilio V. Cirillo who predeceased her in 1989.
Working as a cafeteria manager, Olga got to use her love of cooking at work and home. Cooking was indeed her passion and brought family together for countless memorable occasions throughout her life. She enjoyed picnics and watching the Red Sox play. Her love of her Lord and heritage led her to be involved with both the Catholic Guild for the Blind and the Italian Heritage Society. The rosary was her daily friend as was her devotion to Our Lady.
Olga is survived by her children and their spouses; Connie and Larry Paglia, Vincent and Kathleen Cirillo, and Richard and Kellie Cirillo, grandchildren; Brian, Mark, Andrea, Melissa, Rachel, Ryan, Jillian, step-grandchildren; Kyle and Dylan, six (6) great-grandchildren and several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her husband Juilio, and siblings; Lucy Tramontozzi, Dr. Anthony Tramontozzi and Elena Tarka.
The family would like to extend notable gratitude to the staff at Greentree Manor in Waterford for their care and compassion shown to their mother and family during her stay with them.
Visitation to be held on Thursday, January 31st from 4pm-7pm at the Labenski Funeral Home, 107 Boswell Ave., Norwich, CT. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, Feb. 1st at 10am at the Cathedral of St. Patrick, 213 Broadway, Norwich, CT meeting directly at the church. Burial to follow at St. Joseph Cemetery in Norwich.
Donations in Olga’s memory may be made to the American Heart Association.

My condolences for your loss. My family and the Tramontozzi family go back to Dominic's father working to bring his family from Italy. When my friend Pat was planning on marrying Vinnie, Olga and my mother planned to have a luncheon with the girls. They never got it together, so I have no adult memories of her. It was a pleasure to know Andrea, Melissa and Rachel from school.
