With sadness in our hearts, we announce the passing of Elizabeth (Betty) C. (Castellani) Satalino of New Britain, at the age of 93, June 1, 2019. Betty was born on December 2, 1925 in New Britain, CT and was the daughter of the late Felix and Anna (Zenittini) Castellani. She was the loving and caring wife of the late Thomas F. Satalino for over 53 years. Betty attended St. Joseph’s School in New Britain and graduated from New Britain High School in 1943. She worked at WT Grants for many years as a bookkeeper and clerk, and after taking a break to raise a family, (if you call that a break), Betty worked as a cashier at the former New Britain General Hospital for twenty-five years until her retirement in 1990. She was a lifelong communicant of St. Joseph’s Church in New Britain. A very patient person, Betty waited for what seemed like an eternity to finally have a stained glass window of the church dedicated to Dad and herself, and a second window dedicated to her brother, the late Rev. John J. Castellani (Col. USAF, Ret). As far as the family was concerned, her more than ninety years of church attendance and participation should have qualified her to have the whole building dedicated to her. To back this up, on more than one occasion when we were young, we could hear people after Mass whisper “She’s a saint.” A favorite pastime of hers was playing cards with her cousins, friends and family. Betty would teach you any card game that was unfamiliar to you. But you had to be on your toes at all times. After all, she was really fast and good with numbers and that could put you at a disadvantage. Betty would also teach you how to shuffle if you were having trouble. Needless to say, her grandchildren now are all expert card shufflers. In a nod to her nurturing and motherly side, when you came into her home, she would always ask if you were hungry. Even if you weren’t, she would fix something up for you real quick. Betty’s signature cheesecake was a delicious treat on the holidays. The recipe has now been passed down to the next generation. Also, it is nice to know that her coleslaw side dish will live on forever. Betty was blessed with a long and wonderful life. She was fortunate enough to be playing bingo and solving the jumble word puzzle just days before she slipped away from us. We will always remember her kind, caring and gentle personality.

Elizabeth is survived by her three sons - Thomas J. Satalino and his wife Jude (Joyce) of Kensington, CT, Robert P. Satalino and his wife Ruth Ann (Rashaw) of Plainville, CT, Donald J. Satalino of New Britain, CT and her daughter Nancy Satalino Staub and her husband David of Groton Long Point, CT, her brother Richard J. Castellani of St. Petersburg, FL. Eight grandchildren: Molly Satalino, George (Kara) Satalino, Rachel (Steven) Jase, Matthew (Kathleen) Satalino, Andrew Satalino, Timothy Satalino, Elizabeth Staub and Caroline Staub. Her six great grandchildren: Gabriel, Luke, Samuel and Cecelia Satalino, Alice and Rose Jase. Betty is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and family. She was predeceased by an infant daughter, Barbara Ann Satalino. The family would like to acknowledge the professionalism and kindness of all the people who work and live at Arbor Rose in New Britain.

Funeral rites for Elizabeth will be held Friday, June 7, 2019 at 8:30 a.m. with the procession departing at 9 a.m. from the Paul A. Shaker Funeral Home, 764 Farmington Ave., New Britain, CT., followed by a Liturgy of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph Church, 195 South Main St., New Britain, CT.

My sincere sympathy to the family on the loss of your Mom. I was happy to see her when she came to Arbor Rose. We shared many adventures at ST. Joe's over the years. She was indeed a faithful and dedicated parishioner and certainly now is a Saint with your Dad in heaven.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Elizabeth. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)

Heaven has gained another angel. I will miss Grandma Betty at holiday gatherings at Kara and George's house. May the memories that you hold in your hearts of the times you spent with her, help to ease your pain at her passing. It is those special memories that will help to get you all through the difficult days ahead. My sincere sympathies.
Captain Patricia A. Miller, U.S. Navy (Retired), New Bern, NC
