Laura Mistretta, 91, of Connelly, NY, passed away peacefully on Thursday morning, April 16, 2020. Laura was born in New York City on January 24, 1929.

She was married to Joseph Mistretta, Sr. for over 75 years and was mother to six children, Rose, Annette, Joseph, Charles, Martha and Noelle. She was a loving and caring wife and mother and loved her family unconditionally. She had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed a good laugh.

Laura enjoyed family gatherings, camping, cooking, reading and most of all talking with family and friends. She was an intent listener who enjoyed hearing what people had to say no matter what the conversation was.

Laura is survived by her husband Joseph. They were wed on February 24, 1945 in New York. She is also survived by children; Rose, Annette, Joseph, Martha and Noelle. She had nine grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to an organization that helps people in need.

I remember when your mother lived in Las Vegas and we would go there every year on our timeshare. Your dad would pick us up on the strip and we would go and spend the afternoon with your mom and dad just to visit. Your mom had a big heart and open up her doors to us and would treat us just like family every time we went to see her. She would always say make yourself at home, do you need anything? Are you hungry? We even took my baby girl Nicole one year and she went swimming and played with your mom's dog that she loved so much. Your mom was a great person with a big heart and will be truly missed. My heart goes out to all of you. I am so sorry for your loss.

My mom was the best mother in the world. She was truly beautiful inside and out. She was kind and loving. She loved her children so, so much! And she instinctively knew what each of us needed. I miss her hugs. She had a wonderful sense of humor. I really miss her laugh. She is the strongest woman I know. She always saw the best in everyone. She was a wonderful mom. I miss hearing her voice call my name. My heart is broken, and not a day goes by without me thinking about her.

My mom was the best. She taught us to not only see with our eyes but to also see with our hearts. She was understanding, kind, loving and had a wonderful sense of humor. She took a big piece of my heart with her to heaven.
