Lucy (Rossi) Bull, 97, of Plainville, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 12, 2022. She was the wife of the late Harry R. Bull, with whom she shared 23 years of marriage.
Born in Hartford on August 1, 1924, she was the last surviving of four children to the late Joseph and Ellen (Santarelli) Rossi. Raised and educated in Hartford, she moved to Plainville shortly after her marriage to Harry in 1952. Lucy was a “numbers girl” who worked in the banking profession for a number of years. Upon retiring from Bank of Boston in 1986, she continued to work part time until the age of 80 for O’Donnell Bros, Inc. in Bristol. A woman who centered her life around her family, she lived simply, loved deeply, and will be remembered fondly for her strength, independence and devotion to those she loved.
She was predeceased by her only son, Bruce Reed Bull, and leaves her devoted granddaughters, Heather Pierce (Mario), Megan Sledge (Adam) and Jennifer Bull (Jack Naramore); her daughter-in-law, Lorrie Ferland; great-grandchildren Brayden, Connor and Emma Pierce and Jackson Sledge; and many nieces, nephews and dear friends. In addition to her son and husband, she is now reunited with her sisters, Tina Mingo (Joe) and Yolanda Rossi and her brother, John Rossi (Lucy).
In lieu of flowers, Lucy may be remembered with contributions to the Plainville Fire Company Memorial Scholarship Fund, 77 W. Main St, Plainville, CT 06062.
