Janet Mastascusa Muro, 72, passed away on April 24th, 2021 after a 2 1/2 year battle with Pancreatic Cancer at Norwalk Hospital. Janet was first and foremost a beloved mother and wife. She was an exceptional hairstylist and had hundreds of clients throughout her 56 years as a stylist and owner of her own salon for 35 years. Many of her clients remained dear friends even after her forced retirement due to cancer. Janet discovered her relatives in Italy later in life and held them dear to her heart, enjoying her visits to San Michele and Controne, sharing many meals, and we mean many, and laughs. Janet also had a keen eye at interior design. Besides her own home, she was called on by friends to help renovate their homes, something else she really enjoyed.
Janet is survived by her husband of 53 years Joseph M Muro, daughter Darcie Muro, son Joseph Anthony Muro II and her sister Susan Embry. Nephews Jason Friese of Rhode Island, Shawn Dunne of Florida, and Seth Dunne of Alabama, and their families. Also the Paige family of Wilton, especially Addi and Vivienne who she held dear to her heart. She was predeceased by her sister Claudia Friese and her parents Antoinnette Romano Mastascusa and Nicholas Mastascusa.
Janet’s family will receive friends on Sunday, May 2, from 3-6 PM at the Magner Funeral Home, 12 Mott Ave., Norwalk. Masks and social distancing will be required. Her funeral service will be private. Donations in Janet’s name may be made to https://www.pawsct.org/ or https://www.cthumane.org/
