Obituary for Donna Marie Zaleski

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).

Donna is also survived by her aunts and uncles, godmother Lena Nowakowski (Steve), Lucy Meoni (Ron), Teresa Butler (Jack), Joanne Kennedy (Dwayne), Anthony Amoroso (Sharon) and numerous cousins. She also leaves behind her godfather, Thaddeus Sobieski. She is predeceased by her grandparents, John and Catherine Amoroso, and Henry and Anna Zaleski, aunts and uncles, Josephine Amoroso, Mary and Robert Stevens and Rose and Casimer Nessing.
Aside from her loving family, Donna also enjoyed time with the many pets in her life.
