Obituary of Mary N. Frascatore
Mary N. (Raucci) Frascatore left us for eternal happiness surrounded by her devoted and loving family at her home on Thursday, September 23, 2004. Mary was born on March 10, 1922 in Bridgeport, the daughter of Ralph and Nancy (Minopoli) Raucci. She graduated from Central High School 65 years ago and worked in the business world until the start of her family. She married Michael Frascatore on November 24, 1948 and was a resident of Trumbull for over 40 years where she raised her family. She held the most important job in the world after her marriage; that of a wife, mother and head of a family. Family was the most important thing in Marys life, her reason for every breath she took. She was the best mother whose unconditional love will keep us going.
