Pauline Mashel Vincini of Stratford, loving mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Bridgeport on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 with loving family by her side.
Pauline was born on November 5, 1935. She grew up in Bronx, NY and graduated from Roosevelt High School. She later moved to Norwalk, CT where she raised her family. Pauline worked hard for many years as a legal secretary and eventually moved her way up to become a paralegal.
Pauline was known as a strong person and a fighter who overcame many obstacles. She was a loving and caring mother and grandmother who would do anything for her family. Laughing with her at family celebrations will be forever in our hearts.
Pauline is survived by her son Scott Vincini and his wife Carol Anne of Hilton Head, SC and her daughter Karen Canal and her husband James and their two children James and Jillian of Monroe, CT. She was predeceased by her parents Karl and Suzanne Mashel and her six brothers and sisters: Jean, Rae, Sam, Mike, Ben, and Ruth. We will miss our Mom and “Grammy” dearly.
Her family will receive guests on Sunday July 24th at 10:30 at Collins Funeral Home, 92 East Avenue, Norwalk, with service to begin at 11:00 followed by a burial service at IHS/Temple Shalom Cemetery, Richards Avenue, Norwalk.
