Obituary for Marie Joan (Brescia) Brunner Franklin
Marie Joan (Brescia) Brunner Franklin, age 89, of Colchester and previously of Stratford passed away Monday, March 16, 2020 surrounded by her loving family in Backus Hospital, Norwich. Mrs. Franklin was born February 13, 1931 in Bridgeport, daughter of the late Antonio and Maria (Luciano) Brescia.

Daisy, as she was known to her friends was a retired RN at Meriden Wallingford hospital for over 25 years and enjoyed taking care of newborns. After her retirement from the allergist office, she enjoyed sitting at the beaches in Stratford and socializing with family and friends.

Her love of traveling brought her to many places around the world. She especially enjoyed her trip to Italy in 1980 when Italy won the World cup.

After moving to Colchester CT four years ago, she enjoyed playing pinnacle at the Colchester Senior Center, going to Mohegan Sun to play her slot machine, shopping and going to lunch.

Marie enjoyed attending her grandson John’s baseball games. On weekends in the summer you would find her at the pool with her grandchildren and her great grandson who brought so much joy to her life. She enjoyed sipping on a wine spritzer with extra ice on the side.

Marie also loved the family dog Spike and he misses her dearly.

She will also be missed by her dear friends and neighbors, Ray, Kathy and Thomas Signore.

Survivors include her daughter and caregiver Susan Silvestri and her husband, Mike; one son, Richard Brunner and his wife Marcia; four grandchildren, Jennifer, Danielle, John and Christopher; one great-grandson, Ryker and several nieces and nephews.

Friends are invited to attend a memorial service on Friday, July 17, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. in Our Lady of Grace Church, 497 Second Hill Lane, Stratford.
