Jacqueline M. (Bruno) Connelly, age 81, died peacefully after a long battle with cancer, on March 12, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Center, Trumbull. Born in Italy on 6/28/1938, she was the daughter of Carmine and Frances (Perrotta) Bruno. Jacqueline resided in Ansonia, CT, Shrewsbury, MA, and spent many happy years as a Stern Village resident.

Jackie adored spending time with her two granddaughters, Kiera and Caroline, and spent countless hours in the kitchen cooking and baking with them. Trips to the casino (and winning big at Bingo), watching the Red Sox win, tending to her garden, crocheting and socializing with friends , brought Jackie much joy. She is also survived by her son, Colin Connelly and daughter in law, Kerri, of Rockville Centre, NY, sister, Josephine Laczkoski of Bradenton, FL, and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Barry Connelly, and brother, Robert Bruno.
