I tried to access it directly, but couldn't get around the upgrade.

All the listings through Ancestry (which I can get the plain text for) were 1980 obits for Salvatore or 1999 obits for one of his relatives.

Her 1991 obit did not come up. Only the SS death index which listed her as "Minnie C Petruzzello".

Looks like someone with 'Publisher Extra' will need to chime in... :(

Yes, the dates matched. I was pretty sure that was her. I tried checking that name too, but nothing...

I used the 7 day free trial.
No paid Courant obit, just name and address in out-of-town headings.
There are obits for her husband and sister-in-law.
Middletown newspaper not included.

She was born in Floridia, Siracusa, per Salvatore's naturalization and married in CT in 1919. LDS has Floridia records.

Those were the ones I found as well. I didn't post them since they didn't include info on Carmelina's siblings...

Grew up in that part of CT, so only interested to that extent.
There was no obit for brother Angelo.

Yes, I just found Angelo's obit, too, sorry for my error. Just getting old.
