  1. .Aunt Alphena., you can now sing and rejoice with your brothers and sisters in heaven. You will be remembered for that special gift of song. I speak for my father Roger, your brother, as he is hospitalized at this time and his thoughts along with ours are with you. Maxine & Gerry and Roger & Lucille…..

  2. Alphena was a very warm and social person. She was a friend of my wife Patty’s at Whitney Donut where they shared many morning breakfasts with each other. At Hamden Healthcare she became a friend of my mother Olga and both of them shared their meals with each other. However, in talking with Alphena I also came to realize that many years ago she was friends with my Aunt Eleanor, Olga’s older sister. Alphena use to live in Bridgeport and shopped at Shaw’s Jewelers where my aunt worked for many years. We will all miss her, but be left with our fond memories of mements we shared with her.

  3. Aunt Alphena will be missed. She has joined her many brothers and sisters in a better place. May the angels in heaven help make her journey a joy.

  4. Rest In Peace to Mrs.Alphena. She was so close to me and when I worked there, Alphena definitely knew how to light up the place. Any room that she walked in, the room was brighter. I will always miss you Alphena. May God Rest your soul. Love you

  5. Alphena was a customer at my late parents’ drugstore in Bridgeport. She used to bring us the most delicious holiday cookies–I still have her recipe and thought of her today Alphena Money’s Vanilla Drops 1/2 cu butter, 2T sugar, 1tsp vanilla,1 cu sifted flour, 1 cup finely chopped walnuts. Cream butter, sugar, vanilla. Stir in flour and walnuts. Chill overnight. Bake 350 degrees in marble size balls on uncreased sheet. Roll in powdered sugar when cool. Thank you Alphena
