Marthe (Mimi) Parisi of Broken Arrow, OK, formerly of Norwalk, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, July 6, 2011 surrounded by her family.
Marthe was born in New York on January 25, 1934, daughter of the late Denise & Sergio Tatulli. She is survived by Charles, her loving husband of 59 years; her devoted daughter, Denny Sierau and her husband Johann of Broken Arrow, Ok; her 2 grandchildren; Michelle Sierau of Bridgeport and Nicholas Sierau of New Mexico.
She is also survived by her brother, Charles Tatulli and wife Carolyn of Norwalk; 3 nieces; Suzie and Gabby Parisi of Bridgeport, and Carla Nikolis and husband James of Fairfield; 2 nephews, Chris Tatulli and his wife Roberta of Trumbull and Steven Parisi of Bridgeport. Mimi had 3 great-nephews; Zachary, Trevor and Justin.
She worked for Xerox in Stamford for many years before retiring with Charles to Myrtle Beach, SC. They then moved to Oklahoma to be near their family.
Mimi was a fantastic cook, a creative gardener, and a very experienced first mate to her husband “Captain Charles” while on their boat “Overtime” enjoying days with many close friends. They were members of the Rex Yacht Club and South Norwalk Boat Club while residing in Norwalk. Her greatest passion, of course, was to be at home with her family surrounded by love and laughter.
