Louise A. (DeCorleto) Burke passed away peacefully at Hughes Health and Rehabilitation on September 14, 2020 at the age of 92. She was born in Hartford on March 23, 1928. Louise was the daughter of the late Louise-Lizzy (Verre) DeCorleto and Antonio DeCorleto. She grew up in Hartford and graduated from HPHS in 1946 and attended Connecticut University. She was predeceased by the love of her life, Thomas Burke and her beloved daughter, Mary Burke-Brignano.
After marrying Tommy, they resided in West Hartford, where they became involved in community activities. She was very active in the St. Brigid Ladies Guild, and had served as President. She was also a member of the Democratic Women's Club.
Louise returned to the work field as an Recreational Director in the healthcare industry. Her fun loving personality and her love of music were valuable assets for this career. Louise's life came full circle, not only was she a resident of Hughes, but she had been employed as a Recreational Director there for many years.
The family would like to thank the staff and administration at Hughes and Masonicare for their exceptional care and support they provided in taking care of Louise and the family members. A special thank you to all the staff employed in the Southwest section of Hughes.

Dear Lois and family, I am sad to hear of Louise’s passing. I instantly recognized your mother’s smile from all those years ago when I spent many days and nights at your house. I used to love the lively sense of humor always present in your home. I remember tagging along at many of the St Brigid activities and never fully appreciated all the hard work you mom put into them. Even as a kid, I liked that your mom was a no nonsense woman. So many happy memories! My sympathy to you all. The world feels a little empty
