Putnam – Joanne (Murray) Cassettari, 90, of Putnam, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, June 22, 2021, at Westview Healthcare Center, Dayville CT. She was the loving wife of Renzo Cassettari. She was the daughter of the late Harold and Claire (Daigle) Murray.
Joanne worked as a dental assistant for many years, however her greatest achievement was as a loving wife and mother to her five children.
Joanne is survived by three sons, Peter Cassettari of Putnam, CT, Philip Cassettari of South Windsor, CT, Paul Cassettari and life partner, Pamela Quinn of Barrington, NH; two daughters, Susan Cassettari of Killingly CT and Lisa Cassettari of Dayville, CT, brother, Phillip Murray of Plainfield, CT; and her beloved two grandsons, Keith, Cole; three granddaughters, Brittany, Jessica, Carly; two great-granddaughters, Lucca and Vienna.
She was predeceased by Stepfather, Peter Jalbert, brother, Robert Murray, and sister, Madeline Deitert.
Joanne and her late husband Renzo were best known for their fruit and produce store, Danielson Fruit Store, Danielson Ct. It was in that store where Joanne could be found working alongside Renzo while also raising her 5 children. After Renzo’s death in 1988, Joanne went on to work as a dental assistant for Dr. Edward Duval until her retirement. After retirement, Joanne enjoyed the love of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was happiest when spending time traveling, taking care of grandchildren and just enjoying life. She loved the beach and the sun and was known for always having a glowing tan and never opting out on the opportunity to catch some rays!
Joanne lived a long life. We are truly blessed to have had her for many years. She will be greatly missed by family and friends.
All are invited to join in a mass on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, at 11:00 am in St. Mary Church of the Visitation, 218 Providence St., Putnam, CT. We invite all loved ones, family and friends to join the family directly after the church service at the Elks Club, Putnam Ct. so we may come together to honor Joanne’s life.
