Obituary for Bernice Lutrario

Bernice I. Lutrario, a longtime resident of Middletown, died at ORMC surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, October 5, 2019 after a short illness. She was 92.

The daughter of Antonio and Rose Marie Parenti Ioffredo, she was born on February 6, 1927 in Middletown. Bernice graduated from Middletown H.S. Class of 1945. After graduation, she enrolled in the classes at Eastern School of Physicians Assistants in N.Y.C. After finishing there, she worked as an x-ray technician before returning home. She met the love of her life, Thomas “Red” Lutrario whom she married in 1949. They spent a few years in his hometown in Jersey City and eventually came back to Middletown where they raised their two daughters, became very active in the community and Bernice connected with many of her old H.S. chums.

She will be remembered for her love of family, her neighbors and friends – and her organization and attention to detail. Bernice was a longtime and devoted parishioner of St. Joseph’s Church, the Catholic Daughters of America Court Rosemary #681, the Altar Rosary Society, several Senior organizations including the Golden Seniors, Mulberry House and the Wallkill Happy Seniors and the National Association of Physicians Nurses.

She is survived by her loving daughters, Donna Lutrario of Middletown, Celeste Lutrario of Cary, North Carolina and her sister Antoinette Petrucci of St. Petersburg, FL and many nieces, nephews, cousins and special friends.
