Shirley M. Lodovico

Mrs. Shirley M. Lodovico, 81, died on October 20, 2016 at Grace Rehabilitation Center in Vero Beach, Florida.

Shirley was born in Meriden, Connecticut and grew up in Southington, Connecticut, where she lived and met the love of her life, Dan Lodovico, while playing golf at Pine Valley Country Club. They married and raised their two wonderful daughters in Bristol, CT.  During this time she also worked at Bradlee’s Department Store, served as president of the parent teacher association of St. Anthony’s School, and never missed a sporting event that her daughters were participating in. For their golden years, Shirley and Dan decided to retire to Vero Beach, Florida. She was an avid golfer, reader, loved trips to the casino, and dining out.  She was a member of the Central Valley Square Dancers of Farmington CT, the Vero Beach Drifters Golf League, and Holy Cross Catholic Church of Vero Beach.

She is survived by her loving husband Daniel Lodovico of Vero Beach, daughter Laurie and husband Todd Bardes of Lebanon CT, daughter Kathleen Lodovico of Farmington CT, and her two amazing grandsons that she loved beyond words, Raymond Bardes of South Norwalk CT and Steven Bardes of Lebanon CT.   Visitation will be held on Tuesday, October 25 from 9-10am at Strunk Funeral Home, Vero Beach. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 10:30am at Holy Cross Catholic Church.  

Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at 10:00 AM at St. Anthony Church. Family would like everyone to meet at the church. Burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery. Dunn Funeral Home 191 West St. Bristol is in charge of the arrangements.
