Esther "Pasqua" L. Morrocco

Esther "Pasqua" (Luisi) Morrocco, 99, wife of the late Alfred “Bibby” Morrocco Sr. of Bristol, Connecticut entered the gates of Heaven on January 23, 2021. She was born in Thompsonville, Connecticut the eldest daughter of the late John Luisi and Rosa (Giannini) Luisi on December 15, 1921.  She is survived by her son Alfred F. Morrocco, Jr., her sisters Angelina L. Czaplicki, Rosemary L. Beckwith and her husband John Beckwith and her surviving brother James Luisi, pre-deceased brothers Michael Luisi, Thomas Luisi and son John T. Morrocco.

She moved to Bristol as a young child and resided thereafter with her family and then on April 27, 1946 marrying her husband Alfred (Bibby) Morrocco Sr.  First living at Goodwin and Queen Street then to Judson Avenue where they purchased their home.  She attended Bristol High School and worked during World War II first at Wallace Barnes Manross Division then with the Barnes Group Steel Division in Forestville, Connecticut.  Thereafter she worked at Bristol City Hall and then for the Bristol Police Department until her retirement.  She always was employed in order to provide much more for her family.  She had a generous heart looking to improve and better their lives.

After World War II and her marriage, she had two sons, Alfred (Fred) Morrocco, Jr. and the late John T. Morrocco.

Adversity was not absent from her life when tragedy struck.  She experienced the death of a grandchild, the first daughter of her son John and Donna,  Melissa, “the angel of our lifetime” at age 1 ½ years old.  Tragedy also struck again when she experienced the loss of her son John who was 40 years old and then the loss of the love of her life, Alfred Morrocco, Sr. on February 25, 2003.  Despite those losses she was still the matriarch of the family.  When she was young, she cared for all of her three brothers and two sisters from an early age.   She was also the strong and the driving force to make them as well as her two sons decent and caring persons.  Everyone  in the family looked up to her for guidance and respect.  All of the surviving members of the family, relatives, siblings, son, grandchildren, and great grandchildren shall always remember her for that quality.

She will be greatly missed by her son Alfred (Fred), Jr. and his wife Paola.  She leaves two grandchildren of her son Fred, Rebecca (Morrocco) Weiss and her husband John, of Windermere, Florida and Brandon and his wife Elizabeth of Boston, Massachusetts.  She leaves behind the beautiful great grandchildren of Rebecca,  Reagan and Ryleigh Weiss and the beautiful great grandchildren of Brandon, Anne as well as their new addition born on January 12, 2021 James Morrocco.  She also leaves behind her granddaughter, the daughter of her late son John, Marcie M. Kaczmarczyk and her husband Jon and the beautiful great grandchildren Aubrey and Nathan.  She also leaves a grandson, the son of the late John, Jason Morrocco and his wife Tracy, beautiful great grandchildren J.T. (John) and Jenna.  She also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, god children and cousins.

Throughout  Esther’s life, she loved and was able to travel with friends and family extensively going to many places in Europe, South America, the Caribbean, as well as Hawaii.  She and her husband always took her two sons on Summer vacations every year to the New Jersey Shore as well as numerous vacations to Washington DC, New York, Cape Cod and Canada.  She never forgot to share her time with all of her family.  She loved to cruise and spend the winters in Naples, Florida.

She was there for christenings, birthday’s holidays, and graduations.  Family was always her first priority and they loved seeing her smile and kind words at each event. 

A special thank you goes out to Barbara Adom who provided exceptional care and companionship to Esther at her home during the past few years and Debra Hudak who helped with her living needs. 

Esther for 99 years had a life will lived and will be greatly missed and remembered.  Gone but she never will be forgotten. 

Someone once said that you never die nor be forgotten and will live forever if they remember you and think about you during their lifetime.  Rest in Peace Esther, my mom, our grandma, sister, brother, aunt, relative and friend.  We all will always love you, miss you and remember you. (P.S. Say hello to Bibby, John, Missy and your mother, father and brothers in Heaven.   They waited a  long time to be with you).

Dear Fred, Becky, Brandon (and families),
I will always remember your mother with great fondness. She had a heart of gold and when I worked for you, she always treated me with kindness and respect and earned mine in return. She was a great listener and was so wise with her advice. There are some people who touch your heart and right now mine goes out to all of you.
