She was predeceased by two brothers, Vincent Frascatore and Anthony Frascatore and one sister, Virginia Brescia.  She is survived by her sister, Eva McNutt.

Mary was married to the love of her life for 50 years, Charles Edward Farrenkopf (deceased) and was the proud and loving mother to six children.  She is survived by her children, Bruce Farrenkopf and his wife, Paula, Douglas Farrenkopf and his wife, Michele, Dennis Farrenkopf and his wife, Karen, Jeffrey Farrenkopf and his wife,  Joan, and Cindy Hennessy and her husband, Christopher.

Mary moved to Oxford, CT. in 1987 where she was actively involved in the St. Thomas, the Apostle Church, for many years, singing in the choir and serving as a cantor during the mass.  Her fondest memories were of her times there with her friends. 

Mary also volunteered at the Shady Knoll Senior Center, visiting the elderly and bringing joy to their day.

For the past two years Mary had resided with her son in Bethel and at the time of her death, was a resident of the Maplewood at Stony Hill.

Mom, we will miss your loving, family centered warmth but we know you are singing with the angels.  Rest in Peace!
