Phyllis Ferraro Obituary

Phyllis (Kordek) Ferraro, 79, of Bristol, beloved wife of Peter Ferraro, died on Sunday (August 17, 2014) at The Pines at Bristol. Phyllis was born in Bristol on January 17, 1935 and was a daughter of the late Walter and Mary (Prucnal) Kordek. A lifelong Bristol resident, she retired from Eagle Bank (the former Bristol Federal Savings Bank) after 33 years of service. She started at the bank as a teller and ended her career as Assistant Vice-President of Mortgage Services. She was a phenomenal baker and especially enjoyed making Christmas cookies and apple strudel with her granddaughter, Rachel. She took delight in designing greeting cards for her friends and family on her computer. She was always very crafty, whether creating homemade Halloween costumes for her daughter and later her granddaughter, or coming up with designs for birthday cakes without using special pans. In addition to her husband of 53 years, Phyllis is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and Mark Savitt of Bristol; her granddaughter, Rachel Savitt; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a sister, Genevieve Stachkunas. Funeral services will be held at Funk Funeral Home, 35 Bellevue Ave., Bristol, on Thursday (August 21, 2014) at 11 AM. Burial will follow in West Cemetery, Bristol. Relatives and friends may call at the funeral home prior to the service on Thursday between 10 AM and 11 AM. Phyllis requested those in attendance wear bright casual clothing in celebration of her life. Memorial donations may be made to the Waterbury Christian Academy, 1 Dube Lane, Waterbury, CT 06705. "Do not cry or shed tears for me, I have had a good life. I have gone to the house my father has prepared for me. John 14:2. Please visit Phyllis' memorial website at WWW.FUNKFUNERALHOME.COM
