Obituary

Rochelle "Shelly" (Rubinow) Asfalg of Cromwell passed on to Heaven on June 1, 2022 after sharing 88 years of kindness, compassion, and love with everyone she met.  She held no grudges, sought the best in everyone, and her smile made you believe in goodness, light, and love.  She enjoyed trips to Newport, sing-a-longs, dancing, playing scrabble, crossword puzzles, and writing poetry.  She was retired from Kmart and the Cromwell Belden Public Library. 

She was predeceased by her husband of 66 years George Asfalg and her brother Roger "Sonny" Rubinow of Middletown. 

She is survived by her children Gregory Asfalg of Cromwell, Karen Garofalo of Columbia, Douglas Asfalg of Enfield, Gary Asfalg of Rocky Hill, and Cynthia Parenteau of East Hampton, her sister-in-law Betty Rubinow of Middletown, and her dear cousin Sondra Meltzer of Stamford. She also leaves several nieces and nephews, as well as several grandchildren and great-grandchildren who affectionately knew her as Nana, Grandma, and Gigi.
