  1. Fioretta was the most beautiful, intelligent, creative and classiest woman I ever met. We worked together at Union Trust many years ago. She was a wonderful, graceful dancer good enough to be Fred Astair’s partner. She will be missed by those who knew her.

  2. May god’s grace uplift and support you all during this time of loss. I knew Fioretta when we were members of the former Singles Intermediate Bridge Club and played at the Hamden Bridge Club. Many memories. Rest in Peace, Fioretta.

  3. Fioretta was a dear friend of my mom. They played bridge together and enjoyed seeing one another at church every Sunday. People thought they were sisters. I will share the news with my mom. Thoughts and Prayers to her family.
