Beverly A. Secondo, 80, of Manchester, formerly of Enfield, passed peacefully Thursday, October 24, 2019 at Saint Francis Hospital surrounded by her family. She was born in Springfield, MA on May 17, 1939, the loving daughter to the late Thomas “Smokey” and Vera Secondo. Beverly grew up in Enfield where she lived for most of her adult life. She worked for many years as a bookkeeper for ShopRite and as a CNA providing home care for the later part of her life. Beverly was a loving mother and grandmother who dedicated her life to caring for her family. In her spare time she enjoyed “going up the road” to play the slots. She will be remembered for her feisty, fun-loving personality and her infamous laugh.
Beverly is survived by her children, Diane Cabral and her husband Luis of Manchester, Darlene Borowski and her husband John of Enfield, and Ann Marie Prayzner of Ledyard; her grandchildren, Kaleena Frutuoso and her husband Mark, Ashley Skrabely, Heather Skrabely, Rachel Cabral, Rebecca Skrabely and her fiance “Fitzy”, Joshua Borowski and Madeline Borowski; her great grandchildren, Gabriel and Christian Frutuoso. A celebration honoring Beverly’s life will be held at Grassmere Country Club in Enfield on Sunday, November 10, 2019 from 12:00-4:00pm. All are welcome to join us!
