Marietta (Randazzo) DeSarro, 94, of East Hampton, CT, wife of the late Hugo DeSarro, died peacefully on June 25, 2018 at Middlesex Hospital. She was born December 17, 1923 in Hartford, CT to the late Sebastian and Mary (Mauriello) Randazzo. After graduating from Weaver High School in 1941, where she excelled at Home Economics, Marietta worked for the Traveler’s Insurance Company until she and Hugo married, in 1946. They settled in Hartford, where they raised their three daughters.
Marietta lived a beautiful life surrounded by her family, which was her greatest joy. She was happiest supporting the interests of her husband, daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was an excellent seamstress, making the bridesmaid dresses for her own wedding, and later making her daughter’s wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses, as well.
Marietta was a wonderful cook, hosting family gatherings for her extended family well into her 80’s. She was famous for her Saturday night spaghetti suppers that she lovingly prepared from scratch, bringing us all to the the table each week to enjoy each other’s company.
During their 71 years of marriage, Marietta and her beloved husband, Hugo, enjoyed square dancing, travelling cross country to visit national parks, were former members of the West Hartford Grange and spent many winters in Florida with family and friends. They were both active members of the East Hampton Senior Center, where Marietta enjoyed crafting, companionship and exercise.
Marietta was the consummate wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, who will be remembered most for her devotion to her family.
Marietta was predeceased by her husband, Hugo, her parents, Sebastian and Mary Randazzo, her sister, Pauline Daloe and her brothers, Salvatore and Michael Randazzo. She leaves her sister, Rosalie Lynch of Glastonbury, her three daughters, Doreen DeSarro of Glastonbury, Nancy Carbone and her husband Frank of Colchester, Anita Bellows and her husband Warren of East Haddam, six grandchildren, Jesse Carbone and his wife Margherita of Brooklyn, NY, John DeSarro of Glastonbury, Emily Silva and her husband Claudiano, Raymond Bellows of New London, Michael Bellows of San Antonio, TX and Janet Kellum of East Lyme and two delightful great grandchildren, Evalynn and Leo Kellum, and numerous nieces and nephews who she loved dearly.
