Lorraine M. Connole, 72, of Bloomfield, passed away on Wednesday, May 19, 2021. She was born on May 4, 1949 in Bristol, daughter of the late Vincent and Helen (Zalaski) Dolecki.
Lorraine was a lifelong resident of Bristol, CT. She loved to be around people being social and was very generous with her time, especially when it came to her family. She was a devoted grandmother who loved her grandchildren very much and could often be found at their school and sporting events supporting them and their interests. She enjoyed being in the flower garden when she could and loved the holidays with all the excitement and decoration that comes with it. Christmas was a particular favorite of hers. Later in life she took an interest in puzzles, playing bingo, and became an avid reader.
Lorraine is survived by her sons Christopher Connole and his wife Rebecca of MA, Bryan Connole and his wife Jeanette of West Hartford; grandchildren William, Stella, Benjamin, Matthew and Donovan Connole; sister Phyllis Coleman of FL and several nieces and nephews.
Calling hours will be held at O’Brien Funeral Home, 24 Lincoln Ave., Bristol on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 starting at 9:45AM until a procession that will begin to St. Gregory Church, 235 Maltby St., Bristol for a Memorial Mass at 11AM. Burial will follow at St. Joseph Cemetery, Bristol.
