Jennie (Maurello) Zambrello, 101, of West Hartford, CT passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family and loving caregiver Marvalyn on July 18, 2020. She was the wife of the late Carmine Zambrello. Jennie graduated from Hartford Public High School with the class of 1935b at the age of 16. She worked at Pratt and Whitney during World War II, later as a Comptometer Operator at Gellis Sporting Goods, and then at The State of Connecticut Tax Department. Jennie was an active parishioner at Saint Mark’s Church for over 65 years where she often volunteered, and served as a member of their “Holy Rollers” group. She made her first cross country trip by car in the late 1930s, and again in 1941. She was an avid UCONN Women’s basketball fan for many years, and always the last one to leave a party or family gathering. The breadth of her life cannot easily be summarized in a few sentences. She is survived by her son Philip and wife Diane Zambrello of Middletown, CT, son Tom Zambrello of Tucson, AZ, daughter Mary Alice and husband Frank Carlozzi of Farmington, CT, daughter Joanne Zambrello of Bedminster, NJ, seven grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to Marvalyn for her love and care for Jennie for the past seven years. A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held followed by a burial at Fairview Cemetery in West Hartford, CT. A memorial service will be planned at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made in Jennie’s name to the Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital or at Que sera sera. Online condolences may be made at

Dearest Jenny Zambrello who once called me at the beach, with my mother by her side to let me know my dear father Stephen Heslin had just died.
Such a lovely lady. Wonderful neighbors. God Bless All and Many Prayers.

Mrs Zambrello will be missed by our family . She was one little sweet lady. She had an amazing sense of humor and a kind heart . She was under 5 feet tall -but you didn’t mess with her . We listenEd to what she said . She was widowed at an early age -and still raised an amazing strong family .She was loved by many and will be missed by many . What more of a tribute can you leave this world with ?

It took a minute but came to me as I read through the obituary..Your Mother and mine, Edna Donaghue Johnson, were HPHS classmates. !! I remember meeting your mother once when out w/ my mother and her later telling me what a "nice gal" your mother was. We were blessed as my mother lived to be 97. God Bless You all! Barbara Clemens
