Florence (Nowosielski) Gosselin, 87, of New Britain, beloved wife of the late Joseph Roger Gosselin, passed away Monday, March 9, 2020 at home. Born in New Britain, she and her husband moved to west Hartford to start a family and remained there for the majority of their lives.
Florence was a dedicated member of the Church of St. Timothy, West Hartford and encouraged others in their faith. She was a gourmet cook who enjoyed sharing her culinary skills with everyone. Her signature spaghetti and meatballs Sunday lunches were “priceless” family gatherings. Mom was a woman gifted in many ways (artistry, painting, decorating, mentoring) and could have had many careers, but chose to be a loving mother of 12 children.
Florence is survived by her children and spouses, Gregory and Rita Gosselin, Beverly and Elliott Peterson, Cynthia and Leigh Gammie, Deborah and Steven Scribner, Carol and Scott Dineen, Linda Hill, Nini and Roger Gates, Elizabeth and Brian Rich, Diane and Michael Giordanella, Matthew Gosselin; 15 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and a sister Jenny Chapados. Florence was predeceased by two sons, Jeffrey Gosselin and David Gosselin and a grandson, Troy Gammie.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, (March 13), 10:00 am at The Church of St. Timothy, 1116 North Main Street, West Hartford. Burial will in Mt. St. Benedict Cemetery, Bloomfield. Memorial contributions may be to St. Timothy School, 1116 North Main Street, West Hartford, CT 06117. Online condolences may be made at

Dear Beverly,
I am saddened to hear about your mother. We just talked about her last week. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father.
Will keep you in our prayers.

My mother (Patricia Rooney LaRoche) sends her love and sympathy to the family of Florence. So many fond memories of going out with Roger, Florence and Aunt Norma/Uncle Gerry. I certainly remember being in the den at our house in West Hartford as a kid and seeing everyone come over before they went out to dinner/dancing. Florence was a lovely, lovely lady....and was always dressed to the 9's. She gave us my favorite childhood kitty cat, Bernice. Bernice (named by Florence, I believe), gave our family (especially me) so much joy and she lived a very long life. Thank you, Florence and we pray for peace to her and the family.
