STAMFORD, Conn. – Jean Dedura, 99, of Stamford, died Monday, June 15.
Born in Stamford June 8, 1916, she was one of nine children born to Mr. and Mrs. Walter Brzoska. Growing up, her family spent most of her upbringing on a farm in upstate Connecticut. When she returned to Stamford, she met and married Edward Dedura, and they started a family of their own.
She worked for many years cleaning houses in the Stamford area and grew close to many of her customers – even caring for their children. In her later years, she loved to play cards and bingo with her sister and friends, enjoyed cooking and baking, and spending time with her family. She was also a past parishioner of Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Stamford.
Dedura is survived by her children, Edward Dedura (Diana) of Prescott, Arizona; Debbie Pirre (Al) of Ansonia, Connecticut; five grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
In addition to her husband she was predeceased by her son, Gary Dedura, and eight siblings.
