WOLCOTT – Antoinette (Perugini) DiLeo, age 90, of Wolcott, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday January 2, 2024, at Cheshire House Nursing and Rehab Center in Waterbury. She was the widow of Fred DiLeo.

Antoinette was born on January 4, 1933 in West Hartford, the daughter of the late Antonio and Mary (Lovallo) Perugini. She was educated in local schools and went to work as a salesclerk for F.W.
