Maria G. "Jennie" DiBerardino, 84, wife of the late John DiBerardino of Norwalk, passed away with family by her side on Thursday August 19, 2021. She was born in Norwalk on September 5, 1936 to the late Vincent and Angelina (Baldino) DiMeglio. After graduating Norwalk High School in 1954, she worked as a bookkeeper at Prat Daniel. Besides being a devoted homemaker, Jennie was the manager of her husband's masonry business. Jennie is a proud lifetime member of the Saint Ann's Club. She enjoyed cooking, baking, bowling, reading, word games, and "oh yeah!" dark chocolate. She also enjoyed her many calls to family and friends which always ended with her trademark sign off "Have A Rainbow Day." Above all, Jennie loved her family more than anything.
Jennie is survived by her Children John (Michele) of Iowa, Louis (Jeanette) of Norwalk and Maria DiBerardino of Norwalk; her grandchildren Susannah and Alannah DiBerardino, Adam and Brendon Robertino; as well as two brothers Mike (Joan) and Tom (Colleen) DiMeglio.

I fell in love with Jennie during my weekly visits to her home over four wonderful years. We had such fun gossiping, laughing, sneaking goodies ... I will miss her dearly. She had an enormous impact on my life. Farewell, my dear sweet friend. I will eat some yummy chocolate in your honor, you will always be remembered with love
