Jean (Berardy) Munson, 92, of Plainville, passed away on Thursday, April 30, 2020 at Apple Rehab, Farmington Valley from effects of the Covid 19 virus. She was the wife of the late Robert Munson.
Born in New Britain on February 29, 1928, Jean was one of two daughters to the late Anthony and Josephine (Pestillo) Berardy. A lifelong resident, she was a 1946 graduate of Plainville High School. Jean and Robert settled in their hometown, where they shared 52 years of love and life adventures. They raised three sons, became proud grandparents, and rarely missed an opportunity to cheer each of them on at their many sporting events or activities. Jean was a familiar face around Louis Toffolon Elementary School where she worked in various capacities for many years. Robert and Jean enjoyed travelling throughout New England, having a special place in their hearts for Ogunquit. A UCONN basketball enthusiast, one of her prized possessions was a signed ball that was gifted to her by Geno. A loving wife, mother and grandmother, who never let a day go by without saying “I love you to the moon and back”, she will be greatly missed, leaving her family with many cherished memories.
She is survived by her sons Robert Munson and his wife Linda and Steven Munson and his wife Emily; her daughter-in-law Mary Munson; her grandchildren Patrick Munson (Michelle Richards), Emily Spearin, Matthew and Lucas Munson, Erica David (Ryan), Michael and Robert Munson; and four great-granddaughters Cassandra, Sophia, Morgan and Josephine. She also leaves her brother-in-law Sal Santacroce and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son Anthony Munson and her sister Joan Santacroce.
The Munson family extends their appreciation to the nurses and staff at Apple Rehab and Masonicare Hospice for the compassionate care shown to Jean.
