D'Addario, Jeanette* - West Hartford  
Jeanette D'Addario, 68 OLD ORCHARD BEACH - Jeanette D'Addario, 68, of Old Orchard Beach, left her body for Heaven on Aug. 24, 2016, at home surrounded by loving family. Born in Portland on Aug. 29, 1947, Jeanette spent her youth in Hazardville, Conn., with her adoring parents, Ruth and George D'Addario of Avon; spirited sister, Dianne O'Brien of Middletown; and sweet brother, Georgie of Burlington. Gifted with beauty and brains, Jeanette was voted Miss Green Manorville in high school and worked as an editor of the Unicon, a school paper at the University of Connecticut (UConn). She was elected to the Queen's Court by fellow students and honored by both students and teachers as Most Valuable Student. Jeanette worked at Aetna for 35 years, where she won too many awards to count. She proudly displayed them in her home office long, long after she retired. She finished her career as a Family Medical Leave Act adjudicator, helping families care for loved ones in their times of need. Living in New York City during the disco era, she'd often delight her daughters Penny and Elizabeth by dressing up to go out dancing, including at the famed Studio 54. She was stunningly beautiful and always got through the velvet ropes. Opting for suburban life when her girls were ready to start school, the family relocated to Farmington, Conn. After her girls were grown, Jeanette returned Maine to live out her years by the ocean in Old Orchard Beach. She spent many afternoons walking on the beach and listening to the waves. It was there she discovered that her long-lost family, brother Eddie Jackson and sister Lori Bourque, were living within just a few miles. Their love and support brought so much joy to her final years. Jeanette was highly creative. She sewed beautiful clothes, including mother-daughter dresses in Disney fabric for their first of many trips to Walt Disney World. She loved ceramics, knitting, crocheting, gardening, canning preserves and making cards and scrap books. Her homemade gifts and cards are precious treasures to all who received them. Jeanette also was a strong supporter of Save the Children, where her daughter Penny works. She spent hours making blankets and caps for vulnerable little ones. So many babies are alive today due, in part, to her loving handiwork. Her legacy of love is felt across the globe. Devout beyond measure, Jeanette was a faithful Lutheran. She was confirmed at Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer in Enfield, Conn.; then attended Bethany Lutheran Church in West Hartford, Conn., and Redeemer Lutheran in Gorham, Maine. She served on the Altar Guild, finance committee and Lutheran Women's Missionary League, and held many positions in her churches over the years. Jeanette is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Penny and Kevin Muldoon; daughter and son-in-law, Elizabeth and Fred Boland; grandchildren, Freddy, James and Kate Boland; parents, George and Ruth D'Addario; sister and brother-in-law, Dianne and Phil O'Brien; brother and sister-in-law, George and Maria D'Addario; brother and sister-in-law, Eddie and Jeanne Jackson; sister and brother-in-law, Lori and Gerald Bourque; sister-in-law, Jane Tamang; a dozen nieces and nephews; and her grandpuppies, Moxie, Daisy and Rebel. A service will be held on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016, at 10 a.m. at Bethany Lutheran Church, 1655 Boulevard, West Hartford, followed by her burial at Fairview Cemetery in West Hartford. Online condolences may be made at: www.SheehanHilbornBreen.com In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Save the Children www.SavetheChildren.org 501 Kings Highway East, Suite 400 Fairfield, CT 06825
