Constance E. Belfonti worked alongside her son in their real estate business until her passing in 2013.
Connie was a strong and independent woman who loved her family deeply. She always encouraged people to follow their dreams and was a source of moral support and inspiration for many. She held strong convictions and was never afraid to speak out with good advice and counsel. Her home and her heart were always open to those she loved, and she will be truly missed.
Connie and her son Michael also began scholarship funds at two local Catholic High Schools (Notre Dame in West Haven and Sacred Heart in Hamden) in honor of Connie's husband Richard and her sister Lucille. The funds from these scholarships provide educational stipends each year to worthy students who might not otherwise be able to attend these two private schools. She also regularly contributed to various charities, including the Benedictine Order, the American Cancer Society, and the American Diabetes Association. She was always a good example for young people, having served as the Parliamentarian of the West Haven Junior Women's Club and as a Cub Scout leader for the West Haven chapter in the 1960s.
Connie, you will never be forgotten!
