Florence Ryzak Pirozzoli passed away peacefully at 95 years of age on Saturday, February 3, 2018.

Florence and Alex built their first home together in Trumbull with their own hands. There they raised their three daughters Jayne Chromy of Santa Fe, NM, Mary Ellen Pirozzoli of Ridgefield, and Lynn Pirozzoli of Warrenton, VA.

In addition to her daughters, Florence is survived by many nieces and nephews

Florence was dedicated to her family and tirelessly nursed many a friend or relative through illness and infirmity. Her home was always a haven to those who needed a place to stay for a while or a good hot meal.

  1. Dear Aunt Florence, I can hear the welcome party in heaven. Joe’s BBQing for everybody and my mother just finished sewing up your wings. She’ll want to do a fitting before Uncle Harley teaches you to fly. He’s quite anxious so wear your helmet and put on your seat belt. The fun has just begun.

    Thank you very much for your prayers, kindness and generosity. I love you very much and I’ll miss our chats.
    Your favorite niece, Janice

  2. Dear Aunt Flo–I hope you realize how much you were loved and appreciated for your great meals and hospitality. You will be missed by all. Love Cecily

  3. I had the opportunity to know Florence and Al. We had a wonderful day playing golf together in the late 1990’s at Wilbert Manufacturer’s Association meeting. Al and Florence were great family members of Wilbert. God Bless them on a life well lived.

  4. Dear Florence,
    We are so sad. We miss you very much. Since more than 40 years we know each other due Andreas and M.Therese. We meet us here in Switzerland, in Italy or in your home at Trumbull. It was always wonderful. You are for me an example of kindness and generiousness and love. Thank you very much. We keep you and Alex deep in our hearts. And we will keep on the contact to your wonderful dauthers. With much love. Anita Meyer and families.

  5. Thank you, dear Florence, for well over 45 years of very close friendship. In those years were two European vacations, two World’s Fairs, a cruise to Alaska , a beautiful trip to Hawaii, and 20 years of winter vacations in Green Valley, Arizona. I could go on and on. My love will never end for all of our memories with you and Alex. Rest In Peace, beautiful lady.

  6. Only met Mrs. Priozolli a couple of times always with my friend, her daughter Mary Ellen. And frankly I could never tell who was acting older me or her. I think it was me. She certainly was vibrant and sharp witted. Now I also read how generous and kind she was to her family and friends I can imagine how she’ll be missed. My heartfelt condolences to all who loved her. You were lucky, still are I guess.

  7. We have many fond memories of Florence and Al. We met them in GreenValley, AZ. They were the life of any gathering.
