Anastasia “Sadie” (Kupchik) Albino, 99, of New Britain, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 19, 2020 at the Jerome Home, her second home for the past twenty years. She is now reunited with her husband, Angelo, who predeceased her in 2002.
Born and raised in Newington, Sadie was the youngest of nine children to the late Peter and Christina (Yadlosch) Kupchik. Her younger years were spent working on the family farm, and upon graduation from high school, Sadie worked for New Britain Bank and Trust. Sadie met her future husband and dance partner, Angelo, at the age of 20, and sharing nearly 60 years of love and life adventures. They settled in New Britain where they raised their two daughters and became proud grandparents. Having grown up near Indian Hill Country Club, Sadie enjoyed golf in her younger years, and she embraced the beauty of the outdoors with frequent family trips to the Connecticut shoreline and Lake George. A woman of strong faith, she was a longtime member of the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church in New Britain. For two decades, Sadie enjoyed her active and fun-filled days at the Jerome Home. Here, she made many friends and set back partners, entertained the staff and residents with her self-taught organ playing, and volunteered, advocated and encouraged others to join in their many activities. Remembered for her vibrant smile and joyous personality, she will be greatly missed, leaving many happy memories.
Sadie is survived by her daughters, Karen Costanzo and her husband, Peter and Deborah Dubosar and her husband, David; her grandchildren, Andrea Costanzo and her fiancé, Michael Brady, Kristen Costanzo Silver, and Anthony Roberge; four great-grandchildren, Jordan Costanzo Barrett, Jacob Barrett and his fiancée Jenna Arens, Jayden Valeri and Ariana Roberge; and three great-great grandchildren, Riley and Ellie Boertmann and Blakely Bartlett. She was predeceased by her 3 brothers and 5 sisters, leaving many nieces and nephews.
The family extends their appreciation to the staff at the Jerome Home for their kindness, compassion and friendship.
