Karen Marie Wescott, 72, of Unionville, CT, passed away peacefully with her daughters by her side Tuesday, February 25, 2020. Karen was born in New Britain, CT on June 9, 1947 and was the daughter of the late Joseph and Anne (Rooney) Melescinski. She graduated from Pulaski Senior High School in 1966 and went on to marry the late Kenneth Wescott. Karen absolutely loved cooking, baking and entertaining. Christmas was her favorite time of year. The more decorations and Christmas trees the better. She was a social butterfly and loved to shop. Karen knew all the staff at New Britain General Hospital (HOCC) from the ladies at the front desk to the ladies in the gift shop to volunteers, the security guards and patient coordinators. She was a best friend to her daughters and a true chocoholic. Karen was feisty, funny and full of life, a true fighter that will be missed by all who knew her.

Karen is survived by her beloved daughters Anne Cusack and husband Clayton of Danbury, CT. Shelly Hegg and husband Lonn of Winter Haven, FL. Dawn Calafiore and Ashley Bryant both of Farmington, CT. Her eight grandchildren Michael, Billy, Christopher, Quinton, Jordan, Austin, Chase and Sophia and four great grandchildren, her sister Donna Dorsey Smith and husband Dr. Robert Grybowski of Farmington, CT and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Karen also leaves behind her closest friend Rachel Suarez of Orange, CT. Karen was predeceased by her husband Kenneth Wescott, her sister Jo-Ann LaRosa and her husband Carl, her brother David Melescinski, Uncle Donald Rooney and Wayne Bryant. Karen’s family would like to thank DaVita of New Britain for always looking out for her and loving her, Robbin, Sandy, Ariana, Gina, Tara, Ella, Dr. Lapkin and many others. The family would also like to thank Stephanie the Patient Liaison, the nurses, techs, Dr. McNamee, Dr. Illindala, Dr. Singh, Dr. Damacio, Dr. Benaquista, Dr. Zia, and the ICU at HOCC.
