Angelica T Aparo

March 9, 1927 ~ August 24, 2021 (age 94)




Angelica Beatrice (Torino) Aparo, 94, of New Britain and Old Saybrook, passed away peacefully August 26, 2021 with loving family by her side.

Ann, as she was known to family and friends, was born March 9, 1927 in New Britain to the late Joseph and Bertha (Miller) Torino. Ann graduated from New Britain High School and it was there that she met the love of her life, the late Sebastian Thomas Aparo, whom she married and together spent 68 wonderful years. As she raised her three children, she resumed her secretarial career, retiring from the Mathematics Department at Central Connecticut State University. Devoted to her immediate and extended family, Ann loved to sew, cook, bake and care for anyone who needed her and was happiest when cuddling a baby. She made Sunday dinners and Christmas Eve celebrations always special, her greatest joy being with family. Favorite pastimes were shopping, going to lunch and spending time with her sisters. Angelica was a long-time parishioner of St. Ann Church, and former member of the Ladies’ Guild. 

Angelica is survived by her beloved children, Philip (Bonnie) Aparo of Middletown, Laurie (Gary) Aparo Napierski of Old Saybrook and Joanne (Scott) Giegerich of Old Saybrook as well as her grandchildren, Philip Aparo Jr., Chelsie Anselmo, Alyssa Giegerich and Jack Giegerich. She also leaves her sisters, Mary Hackett and Lorraine Davis. “Auntie Ann” will be especially missed by her many nieces and nephews, whom she loved dearly. She was predeceased by her twin brother, Saverian Torino. We are most grateful to the many caring people who have looked after our Mom with love and compassion throughout her journey.
