ACQUA, Bernadine Catherine Bernadine Catherine Acqua, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away at age 84 at St. Francis Hospital on October 3, 2009. Bernadine was the daughter of John and Louise Springhetti. She was the wife of the late Dr. Louis C. Acqua. She leaves her children, Jeffrey Acqua, Gregory Acqua and wife Barbara, and Mary Lou Sadonis and husband Michael, and grandchildren Eric, Eva, Rachel, Jason and Emily. She also leaves brothers, Jerome, Jack, and David Springhetti and their wives Mary Jean, Mary, and Bonnie; sister Marilyn Fishel, and many nieces and nephews. Bernadine was a resident of East Hartford for her entire adult life. She loved her family and would do anything to help them. A most devoted and faithful friend, she was always ready to help others with meals, flowers, cards, kind words and a listening ear. Her passion for working in her yard was evidenced by her spectacular flower gardens. A multi-talented do-it-yourselfer, Bernadine always said that "The only thing I won't do is go up on the roof." She was a devout communicant of St. Rose Parish. Her faith, strength and courage are inspiring. Our love for her is forever. There are no calling hours and the funeral and burial are private and at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St. Francis Hospital Regional Cancer Center, 114 Woodland Street, Hartford, CT 06105. The Callahan Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements.
