Theresa “Pat” Pastore Sandella, 100, of New Haven, passed away peacefully on July 13, 2019, at the Ellis Nursing and Rehab Center of Norwood, MA.
She was the wife of the late William Sandella. Theresa was born in New Haven on July 7, 1919 and was the daughter of the late Frank and Assunta Giammatei Pastore.

She enjoyed old movies, Big Band era music, Bloody Mary’s, casino trips, lobster rolls, bingo, the New York Yankees, the former West Haven Adult Day Center, and her family and many friends.

Dear Bill and family,
Thinking of you with sympathy at this sad time. How fortunate to have your mother for so long. Pat was a special lady and I enjoyed caring for her. I have fond memories of Pat. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Bill & Family, Your mother and I were friends for many years. I spent many good times with her and your father. I remember when you were off to college in Kentucky and she invited me to go with her unfortunately, I wasn't able too. I'm so sorry I hadn't read her obituary until after the service, I would have attended. May she RIP.

Bill, deepest sympathies. Always learned “interesting” things when she told strange but true stories of Sandella family lore and the way she told it was equally colorful. - Richard Sandella Jr., Guilford
