Obituary for Eleanor M. Vasile (Snetro)

Eleanor M. Vasile (Snetro)
Eleanor M. (Snetro) Vasile, 95, of Berlin, CT passed away peacefully Thursday, September 28, 2017 at the Hospital of Central Connecticut @ New Britain General. Eleanor was born July 31, 1922 in New Britain, CT and was the daughter of the late Samuel and Angeline (LaMonte) Snetro. She was the widow of Corrado “Charlie” Vasile, her husband of forty-five years. Eleanor was a graduate of New Britain High School who, with her husband Charlie, ran Gray’s Store in New Britain for many years. She also worked until retirement at Emhart Corporation in New Britain. Eleanor was an avid bowler in her earlier years and continued to be an avid card player and bingo participant right up to her last week. Her claim to fame, however, and what she loved to do most, was cooking, baking and entertaining for her family and friends. Eleanor’s food was wonderful, but what we all will miss most about her is her unfailing kindness, her generosity and her love.
Eleanor is survived by her three loving and devoted daughters, Sandra (John) Darling of Southington, CT, Connie (John) Straub of Farmington, CT, and Gloria Gasper of Columbia, MD, the joy of her life became her five grandchildren, Shawn, Tami, Todd, Erika and Rebecca and her eight great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Anthony Snetro of Miami, FL and sister Rosalie Bond of Gainesville, FL, and many nieces and nephews, but especially her dear niece Angela Lawler and her husband Tom of Farmington, CT, her in-laws and dear friends Frank and Mary Vasile of Plainville, CT. Eleanor was predeceased by her two sisters Ann Puzzo and Theresa Tenerwicz, her two brothers Joseph and Sam Snetro as well as her son-in-law Stephen Gasper and her niece Ann Marie Adamski. The Vasile family wishes to express a special thanks to the nurses and Hospice team members on 5 North at the Hospital of Central Connecticut for their attentive and compassionate care of Eleanor in her last days. We also wish to thank Carmen for her invaluable help to Eleanor in maintaining her independence during her final months.
