Lucille Lamothe Faenza, 95, cherished wife of the late John J. Faenza entered into eternal rest on June 17, 2020. A devoted wife, mother and grandmother, she was born in Springfield, MA, the daughter of the late Joseph Alcide Lamothe and Desneige C. (Touchette) Lamothe. She grew up in Springfield, then moved to Aldenville, MA. After her marriage, she moved to Hartford and in later years resided in Wethersfield, Rocky Hill, and Newington.

Although she began a career at Greyhound, she soon traded it to stay at home and raise four children. She was a loving, self-sacrificing mother who exemplified integrity and hard work. Even while raising a family, she found time to be a dedicated volunteer in school and church fundraising efforts. Later she worked for the Connecticut State Department of Revenue Services where she was a supervisor in the accounting division. Although her professional career advanced quickly, she successfully maintained a balance between career and family until her retirement 20 years later.

Lucille touched the lives of all who knew her with her warmth, compassion, and grace. Although she endured many challenges in her later years, she accepted them with dignity, hope and unwavering faith. She will be deeply missed by her children Elizabeth (Betty) Lasker and her husband Tom of Berlin, Thomas Faenza of Rocky Hill, Catherine Faenza-Milewski and her husband Steve of Newington, and Joanne Koza and her husband Rick of Wethersfield, three granddaughters, Nikki (Milewski) Wallden and her husband Stephen, Jen Faenza, and Amy Milewski a brother, Reverend C. Romeo Lamothe, a sister-in-law, Pasqualina Faenza, along with several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a grandson, Christopher Milewski and a sister Theresa and her husband Daniel Manning, three brothers-in-law, Nick and his wife Peg Faenza, Sal Faenza, Ralph and his wife Angela Faenza.

The family would like to thank the staff at Cedar Mountain Commons and Jefferson House for the care and compassion shown to both Lucille and John during each of their health challenges.

To Betty, Tom, Cathy and Joanne,

John and Lucille were neighbors and well-known residents at Rose Court for many years. Their contributions to the Homeowners Association were numerous. We all extend our heartfelt sympathy to your entire family and hope you find a measure of comfort in the fond memories of your parents.

With caring thoughts,
The Board of Directors

Betty and other family members, Enza and I send our condolences at the pasting of your mom. There is not enough words to express my feels for Lucille. She was the rock that kept the accounting department running. When the tuff ones came along she picked them up and stayed with them until completed. But most importantly she was a confidante to me, someone I knew had my back. Much more than a co-worker, a friend. Please keep the many good memories close, they help during the difficult time. Sending prayers, Enza and Jim O’Connell

Our deepest sympathies to the Faenza family on the passing of John and Lucille. Our family got to know them and some of you at both Cedar Mountain Commons and Jefferson House when we would visit Marilyn. Unfortunately, Marilyn succumbed to the virus on May 14th. You and your folks were always so nice. May you have fond memories.
Our condolences, the Fusco and Kaminski Families

Thinking back to the early years at The Connecticut Lottery, certain colleagues stand out. Lucille was one of them... a hard-working, dedicated co-worker who was always reliable, always cooperative, and always friendly. Dealing with her was a pleasurable experience, with the confidence that she would do her job with a smile to add to her expertise and enthusiasm. Those were particularly good times, and Lucille was a particularly memorable person.
