Bertha DelGaudio Obituary


Bertha DelGaudio, born Brunislava Vladislava Rynasiewicz, on June 21, 2012 joined her beloved husband, John J. DelGaudio, in Heaven just days shy of her 93rd birthday at Connecticut Hospice in Branford. Born in Pawtucket, RI to the late Wojciech and Aniela Rynasiewicz, she was also predeceased by her devoted older brothers who adored her, Leo of Pawtucket, RI and Joe of Lyndhurst, OH. Bertha attended the Rhode Island School of Design where her lifelong creative talents began and in her early years worked for Bell Telephone in Narragansett and Newport, RI. In June of 1950, she married John J. DelGaudio who continued to call her his bride throughout their loving life. They moved to Simsbury to raise their two daughters and often traveled to Cape Cod where their romance blossomed and where they shared much fun and laughter with their special group of friends at the old "Blue Anchor". Bertha loved a good gin martini, tending to her gardens, pampering her dog. Penelope. and watching sports with her husband, especially the New York Yankees and the UConn basketball teams. She is survived by her daughters, Diane Nesbitt of Simsbury; and Bobbi Irving; her son-in-law Howard; and her cherished granddaughter, Summer, all of Branford; her lifelong BFF, Frieda Dengal of Pawtucket; and many nieces, nephews and friends. Bertha was a gentle and kind soul, had a fun sense of humor and always a big smile. She will be truly missed by all those who were touched by her life.

Really mine in the rain
In the dark, in the sun
Like the tide at its ebb
I'm at peace in the web of your arms
