It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of our beloved mother, Mary Raiola Adams. She was the wife of the late Raymond Adams.
Mary was born January 14, 1923, a daughter of the late Vincenzo and Maria Sansone Raiola. She had worked for Harco Labs and for Travelers Insurance for many years, retiring in 1985. After retirement she continued working part time at Lisa Ann's Card Shop and Giant Oak Pharmacy. Mary enjoyed traveling throughout the country, visiting Alaska, California, the Carolina's and the Dakota's. She enjoyed her annual trip to Plymouth, MA with her son Mark and their dining out every Thursday night.
Mary is survived by her sons, James (Palma) Adams of Southbury, Raymond Adams (Joanne Gleason) of Durham, Mark Adams of Guilford and Michael Adams of West Warwick, RI; and her grandchildren, James and Kendall Adams. She was predeceased by her brothers, Dominic, Carmen, Vincent, Frank, and Patrick Raiola and her sisters, Josephine McCarthy, Antoinette Godalis and Teresa Richitelli. We would like to thank Dr. Mary Scheimann, our mom's doctor for the care shown to her for the past 30 years.
