Obituary for Shirley Waz (Masselle)

Shirley  Waz (Masselle)
Shirley (Masselle) Waz, 86, of Meriden, CT, died peacefully at the Bradley Home on Friday, April 27, 2018 of natural causes. Born in Meriden on August 14, 1931, she was the daughter of the late John and Emma Masselle. She had resided in Meriden and graduated from Meriden High School, Class of 1949. Shirley was married in 1955 to Frank Waz of Middletown.
Mrs. Waz had been employed by Kreske’s downtown, New Departure and waitressed at Carm’s Dairy. In 1982, Shirley moved to Dunedin, FL with her eldest daughter, soaking in the warmth and sunshine of the beach life. There she worked retail, enjoying the close friendships and camaraderie of her coworkers at Robinson’s Department Store.
In 1989, she moved to Yuba City, California with her youngest daughter where she experienced the benefits of the dry heat of the west coast. Shirley returned to Florida in 1995 where she retired. The birth of her grandson beckoned her home to Connecticut, and she was lucky enough to be welcomed into the Bradley Home.
Shirley was a parishioner of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. She was very active, involved in ballroom and swing dancing for decades. She loved all the great music of her time from the Glenn Miller Band, The Rat Pack and Elvis. She was known for her laugh—it was contagious, easily recognized and certainly worthy of imitation. Family time “up the farm” held her fondest memories. Fiercely devoted to her daughters and her grandson, it was her family that she valued most.
Mrs. Waz is survived by her two daughters, Deborah Weigle of Clearwater, FL and Sharon Krukoff of Ashford, CT; her grandson, Zachary Krukoff; her sister, Evelyn Sadecki; and her nieces and nephews, Cynthia and Dave Wright, Sandra and Harold Houston, Ronald and Susan Sadecki, Christina Papallo and their loving families. She was predeceased by her beloved younger brother, Jack Masselle.
There will be no calling hours. Instead, Debbie and Sharon invite family and friends to join them for a Celebration of Life luncheon on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at Il Monticello, 577 South Broad St., Meriden, CT 06450 at 12 noon. Should friends desire, contributions in her memory may be made to The Bradley Home, 320 Colony St., Meriden, CT 06451. The family would like to express immeasurable gratitude to the entire staff at The Bradley Home for their amazing care and compassion.
