Henrietta (Zerella) Vitale passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on April 21, 2020. She is survived by her husband Rick, her daughter Jessica; her son Anthony; her daughter-in-law Ashley; and her granddaughter Natalie. Henrietta was born in Bridgeport and resided in Stratford.
She was a graduate of Central High School and went on to receive her B.S in Business, Cum Laude, from Albertus Magnus College. She had a career as an executive assistant at BHC and later at Birmingham Utilities. After retirement, she loved working per diem with her friends at Stratford High School. Her greatest joy however was being with her family, whether it was family vacations in Maine or just having dinner together. Henrietta's smile lit up a room and touched the hearts of everyone she met. She is truly missed.
