Obituary

Thomaston-Charlene R.  (Burns) Darigis, age 70, beloved wife of Robert C. Darigis, passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday February 24, 2021.

 

She was born in Waterbury, CT on January 13, 1951, a daughter of Ruth Luddy of Waterbury and the late John Burns.  Charlene was a longtime resident of Northfield and most recently Thomaston.  She had retired from Filenes in Waterbury, and was the preferred fashion coordinator by many of her customers.  She was affectionately known as the Filenes Lady.  She enjoyed helping her husband and best friend Bob with his music.  Her true passion was her family, especially her grandchildren and pet dog Cinnamon.

Darigis, Sylvia Charlene Darigis, and Robert C. Darigis; her brother Jack Burns and his wife Deanna of Waterbury; her brother in law Marty Sparano; her daughter in law Heather Darigis;  her dear friend Angela Perrillo; and several nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased by her son Sean Darigis in 2015.
