Dear Family, Mary was one of the most beautiful souls I’d ever met. I knew her from town and spent some time with her while I worked at for Shelton Housing. Always a kind word, always a smile and her family meant the world- if you stayed too long she might adopt you. She truly was a blessing- thank you for sharing her with the world. God bless you all.

Our families condolences go out Marian, Jimmy, David, Kevin, Danny, and all their related families on the very sad loss of Mary Orazietti, such a great Mom, Lady, and another member of the greatest generation. I'll always remember her great smile, vivacious laugh,friendly and understanding attitude and many other innumerable attributes. She was always Mrs. Orazietti to me and growing up with her four boys I realized very quickly she was not a Mom that you put anything over on, unless she let you. She loved all of us neighborhood kids like her own and was always ready to share a meal and motherly advice with you along with tenacious and tender love and sometimes tough---depending upon the circumstance. She was a Mom everybody would love to have, prayers and blessing to all of the families and we thank God for sharing lives with each other.

I am so sorry for the loss of Aunt Mary. I truly enjoyed being around her. I know with the circumstances with mine and my daughters situation with the whole Orazietti family makes things a little different but it doesn't change our relationship with her. God Bless.

Mary was so special to me and my family. We adopted her as our Spiritual Grandmother, we would always pray for each other. I will miss her dearly, her laugh and sense of humor are some of my favorite things about her. And all the stories she shared with me during our talks over a cuppa tea, were so special.
This photo was after one of those dates, and I made her take a photo with me, and I'm so grateful for it.
Rest in peace Grandma O, I love you!

I absolutely love this photo, Kristen! Mary spoke often of how close she was to you, how good you and the family were to her. Hugs!
