Mary (Nashlenas) Fregeau, 84, of Avon, beloved wife of John A. Fregeau for 60 years, passed away peacefully March 18, 2019 with her family by her side. She was born September 14, 1934 in Hartford, daughter of the late Anthony and Anna Nashlenas. She attended Hartford Schools and worked at Aetna and IBM where she met John. She spent many years in Avon raising her family and eventually retiring from the Town of Avon in 1997.
Mary was a communicant at the Church of Saint Ann in Avon and after her retirement, a longtime volunteer at the Favarh Thrift Shop. Her passions were reading, gardening, knitting and watching UConn Women’s basketball, but her happiest moments were watching her family together enjoying each other’s company.
Mary was predeceased by her sister Helen. In addition to her husband, she leaves behind 6 children and 15 grandchildren: Mark Fregeau and his wife Michele of Londonderry, NH and their three sons Mike, Chris and Peter; Jean Fregeau of Columbia, MD and her three children Nate, Maria and Luke; Lisa Babcock and her husband Terry of Bonita Springs, FL and South Yarmouth, MA and their two children Alexis and John; Jim Fregeau of Rye, NH and his 3 children Harrison, Ruby and Cameron; Peter Fregeau and his wife Jill of Portsmouth, NH and their three children Emily, Caroline and Piper; and Julie Fregeau of West Hartford, CT and her son Ben. In addition, she leaves behind her sister Alice SanGiacomo of West Hartford and her brother Thomas Nashlenas of British Columbia, Canada and many nieces and nephews.
Friends and Family are invited to pay their respects on Monday March 25, 2019 at 9am at the Vincent Funeral Home, 120 Albany Turnpike, Canton, CT. There will be a Mass following at 10:30 AM at the Church of Saint Ann in Avon, CT.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Mary. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)
