MERIDEN - Martha Wilson Lasko, born May 28, 1932 to Angus and Phyllis Wilson in Middletown Conn., died on Thursday, June 19, 2014. Martha married Mr. Steven C. Lasko on Feb. 28, 1953, they settled in Meriden, and were married 61 years.

Over her lifetime she raised five children, Steven C. Lasko Jr.; Kimberly A. Hayes; Karen E. Pare'; Martin R. Lasko; and Thomas B. Lasko; along with their spouses Gail, Edward, Lerry, and Kim. Since 2006 Martha guided her family through the passing of her beloved husband and her children, Thomas, Martin, and Kimberly. Mom worked a full-time job while she raised her family. Martha and Steve retired to Barefoot Bay, Fla. in 2000. She loved walking Florida's most beautiful beaches with her husband, and of course, Marty. She made many seashell wreaths, and she loved to cook. Nanny's goulash was the best! Many of her recipes will be passed down through generations to come. When asked what she enjoyed doing? Her response was, "nothing special, as long as she did it with her husband"! Martha's life's work was her family.

Martha was also predeceased by siblings, Anita Haman and Tommy Wilson; and is survived by her sisters, Roberta Gunn and Phyllis Sell. Martha lived for her family; she is survived by her grandchildren Bethany, Robin, Steven III, Ed Jr., Jessica, Nicole, David, Jason, Elizabeth, Thomas, and Alicia; and great-grandchildren E.J., Kendyl, A.J., Grace, Grady, Zachary, Axaiver, Allen, Colton, and more to follow. Martha, Mom, Mother, Nanny, Moppa, will forever be missed.

Her family will receive relatives and friends in The Wallingford Funeral Home, 809 N. Main St. Ext., Wallingford, on Monday, June 23, from 4 to 5:45 p.m. A service will be held in the funeral home at 5:45 p.m. Interment will be private.
