Mary Bennett Obituary

Mary Bennett, formerly Mary Giorchino, a lifelong resident of Norwalk, and a fixture in the Norwalk public school system for more than 25 years , died peacefully in her sleep on December 30, 2023.  Mary was 98.  She is survived by her five sons, Edward; Wayne & his wife Joyce; Kirk and his wife Joan; Mathew ; and Jason and his wife Sharon.  Her husband Russell pre-deceased her.

She was the matriarch of a family of eleven grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren, the most recent being Miles, eighteen months old.

At her death, Mary was a resident of the Marvin, in East Norwalk.  She thrived there for more than ten years,  thanks to her fellow residents, and administrators , Leticia (Lee) Croke and Brooke Knowles.

She loved music and she loved to dance.  She is probably doing the “Lindy” with Russell as you read this.
