Trifomina (Triffy) Lombardi-Mascia, 80, formerly of North Haven was called home by our Lord on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. She was the beloved wife of the late Samuel (Jr.) Mascia, Jr. Triffy was born in New Haven on August 20, 1936; daughter of the late Frank “Sonny” and Margaret Gargano Lombardi; had worked as a banquet manager at the former Ramada Inn of North Haven, where she spent many days and nights working with dear family and friends. Triffy also worked as a CNA for Montowese Healthcare, North Haven and private duty at Whitney Center of Hamden. The love that she had for her patients was undying. Our mother devoted herself to everyone who surrounded and needed her; She gave and had more than enough love to share with her family and friends she so loved. Triffy will always be remembered by her ability to always show kindness and appreciation, her magnetic personality drew you to her for she was an honest and genuine person, mother and friend. She retired early to care for her ailing husband Junior who passed away in 2002. Her only fault was that she never worried about not having enough time for herself. Triffy is survived by her beloved children, Clifford and spouse (Dietrich Lipp) Mascia. Daughters, Gina (Patrick) Butler, Margaret (Lorren) Bissell and Kimberly (Dana) Boughton. Her grandchildren (which were the apples of her eyes) granddaughters Kristina and Melissa Butler, Samantha Bissell, Alex Bissell and Dominic Boughton and a great grandson David Rioux. Besides her children and grandchildren, Triffy leaves behind a sister, Marie (Joseph) Benson and her twin brother Rocco (Diane) Lombardi, many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by brothers, Frank and Dominic Lombardi. Mom, your suffering is no longer; Please keep a watchful eye out for us, for we will all be together once more in the kingdom of our Lord, your loving family.
