Marie Ann Moretti, 83, wife of the late Vincent Moretti of Norwalk, CT passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at Norwalk Hospital.
Born on February 25, 1938 in New Haven, Connecticut, she was the daughter of the late Josephine Wrzask and John Ladzinski.
Marie attended New Haven Public Schools and was the first in her family to attend college. She received her Bachelor's Degree from New Haven State Teachers College (now Southern Connecticut State University) and her Master's degree from the University of Bridgeport.
