Shirley Jecusco

It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of, Shirley B. Jecusco.
Shirley was born in Milford, CT. and was a graduate of the Milford High School Class of 1938. She later married William on her 21st birthday in 1942. By the births of her four children, she was living in Ansonia. At her retirement from Wire Novelty in 1983, she was settled in Seymour. 
Shirley gave many volunteer hours working in various local nursing homes. She was an avid reader and a Friend of the Seymour Public Library. She took much pleasure in time spent with family and her many grandchildren. Her last 31/2 years were spent living with her beloved son William and his wife Mary in Chillicothe, MO. 
She enjoyed participation in the local Meals on Wheels program, lunch at the Chillicothe Senior Center and long rides through the Missouri Countryside. In her final days, Shirley was surrounded by her loving family and friends. 
Shirley was preceded in death by her father, Frederick Worrell, her mother Annie Bruce Worrell, and her husband of 55 years William Victor Jecusco, Sr.
Survivors include her four children; Diane J. Satkunas, Donna C. Bouton (John), William V. Jecusco Jr. (Mary) and Cheryl A LaForme (Daniel). She also leaves behind 11 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandaughter, and her constant companion Nookie, her poodle.

    Dear Diane and family,
    Even though I never met your mother personally I feel like I know her through your stories Diane. I know she was a lovely thoughtful person. I know the sorrow from losing your mother and at times like these we know that death is truly an enemy. As time passes we have to continue to rely on the hope that the Bible holds out at John 5:28,29 and that we will see our loved ones again. Brighter days will be ahead as that day draws near. Please know that our thoughts and prayers will be with you through this difficult time. Jeff and Margie Rector and family….Sesser, Il
