Florence Williams Zuzalock

Florence Mae Williams Zuzalock, age 101, wife of the late Michael J. Zuzalock, died June 30, 2011 at Hancock Hall in Danbury, CT.
Florence was born on November 2, 1909 in New Britain, CT to Lillian Davoll and James W. Williams and grew up in Hartford, CT where she attended Weaver High School.  As a teenager, she moved to Danbury and in 1933 married Michael in Mahopac, NY.  They lived in Bethel and Danbury, CT.  A consummate homemaker, she worked for many years at the Barden Corporation and upon retirement, at Danbury Hospital.  As a young woman, Florence received many accolades and prizes for her baking - among them many ribbons from the Great Danbury State Fair.  Florence’s baked goods and beautiful singing voice were special pleasures for family and friends. 

Florence is survived by her daughter Marion A. Smith of Danbury, CT, grandchildren Karen Mae and husband Anton F. Luttenberger of Great Barrington, MA; Ronald F. Smith, Jr. and wife Rebecca of Sherman Oaks, CA; and Wendy A. Smith of Santa Monica, CA.  Florence also leaves her beloved great-grandchildren Aaron and Eli Luttenberger; Molly, Dakota and Sasha Smith; and great-great-granddaughter Harlow.  She is also survived by her sister-in-law  Henrietta Williams of Hartford, CT; and her late son-in-law’s brother Kenneth W. Smith of Greenwich Village, NY.  Florence leaves many cherished nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, Florence was predeceased by her brothers Harold B. Williams and James A. Williams; sister Mabel P. Rogers; son-in-law Ronald F. Smith, Sr., and his brother Donald J. Smith; and great-great granddaughter, F. A. Luttenberger.

The family of Florence Zuzalock wishes to extend its gratitude and affection to the extraordinary staff of Hancock Hall for the endless kindness and genuine loving care provided to Florence during the past five years. 

The Divine Liturgy will be held on Friday, July 8th, at 10 a.m. at St. Nicholas Byzantine Church, 13 Pembroke Road, Danbury, CT.  The family will receive friends on Thursday evening, July 7th, from 6-8 p.m. at Jowdy-Kane Funeral Home, 9 Granville Avenue, Danbury.
