Veronica "Ronnie" (Devine) Mastrianni, 100, of Plainville, passed away on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, at Apple Rehab, Plainville. She now joins her beloved husband of 63 years, Benjamin, who predeceased her in 1995.

Ronnie was born Sept. 20, 1912, in Utica N. Y., the daughter of the late John and Amelia Devine, of Amsterdam, N. Y. Her sisters, Winifred Rockland and Anna Mae Kazy, predeceased her.

She is survived by her son, Jack Mastrianni and his wife, Janet, of Plainville; her daughter, Sharon Simpson, of Plainville; her former son-in-law and friend, John Simpson and Brenda Zipp, of Bristol; four grandchildren, Gregory Mastrianni, of New York City, Christopher Mastrianni, of San Diego, Shane Simpson, of Plainville, and Shawn Simpson, of Caroga Lake, N.Y.; she adored her five great-grandchildren, Katie Simpson, of West Hartford, Avery and Cecilia Mastrianni, of New York City, and Allison and Madeline Mastrianni, of San Diego, Calif. She greatly appreciated the help and kindnesses she received from her nieces and nephews in the twilight of her years, Al (Sonny) Mastrianni Jr., of Plainville, Mickey Mastrianni and his wife, Honey, of Plainville, Katherine and Anthony Badolato, of Plainville, Mary Lou Reccord and her husband, Edward, of Chattanooga, Tenn.; and her dear friend, Jack Joyce, of Plainville. Ronnie had many friends from her GE days, before and after she retired. After retirement Ronnie and Ben moved to Florida for the next 22 years. Always a Plainville native, they returned home for the remainder of their later years. Ronnie was a volunteer at the Senior Center, helping to put together the monthly newsletter. She also volunteered for the "Telephone Reassurance Program," which was provided by the Senior Center with calls to shut-ins', making sure they were all right and hopefully to brighten their day. Always the life of a party, she loved to dance, and did so, until health problems told the Irish in her, she needed to slow down, as she approached the century mark of her life. But if there was ever a chance to go shopping, Ronnie did it. A dedicated communicant of Our Lady of Mercy in Plainville, she will be greatly missed by all. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the Staff at Apple Rehab for all the care they provided Ronnie in the past three years. In lieu of flowers the family asks that any contributions be made to the exceptional care she received in her last days to; Masonicare Partners, Home Health & Hospice, 111 Founders Plaza, East Hartford, CT 06108.

Family and friends gathered March 22, before Mass at Bailey Funeral Home, 48 Broad St., Plainville.
A Mass of Christian Burial in celebration of Ronnie's life followed at Our Lady of Mercy Church. Committal services followed at St. Joseph Cemetery. For online expressions of sympathy, please visit .
