Florence R. DeCaro, a lifelong resident of Greenwich, passed away Sunday, Oct. 20. Born to James and Lorenza DeCaro on May 23, 1932, Florence graduated Greenwich High School in 1950 and went on to spend her career working for the New York Telephone Company. She retired in 1985 in Computer Support, being one of the first people to work in that Department. She then volunteered at St. Catherine’s rectory and the Red Cross. She loved to read and spent many days in the Old Greenwich library reading room. Florence also played in a woman’s golf league. She was also a diehard Met’s fan, though her favorite team was the Yukon Woman’s Huskies. read more...
