Donna Marie Zaleski, 65, daughter of Philipa (Millie) Amoroso Zaleski and the late Henry F. Zaleski, passed away peacefully on January 27, 2019 after a short battle with early-onset Alzheimer’s. Donna was born on June 22, 1953 in Southington. She graduated from Platt High School in 1971 and earned her bachelor’s degree at CCSU in 1976. Donna worked as a teacher’s aide in the Meriden School System, working with persons with disabilities, and later at SNET as a line-assigner. She was a long-standing parishioner of Holy Angels Church in South Meriden.
Donna is survived by her brothers and sisters, John Zaleski, Cassie Dibble (Russ), Ann Marchi (Carlo), Mary Sattler (Chris), Gina Zaleski, Luke Zaleski (Kim) and Matthew Zaleski (Kyleen).

I had the pleasure of working with Donna at the phone company. I always thought she was a bit quiet, but when you got her to laugh, it was priceless. She had the best laugh. A light gone out too soon. So sorry for your families loss.
