Beverly Ann (Finneran) Giglio, of Danbury, passed away, surrounded by her family and friends, on September 3, 2016 in Danbury, CT.
Bev was born in Meadville, PA. As her father was in the military, they moved often, and then settled in Connecticut, where she graduated from Staples High School in Westport in 1954. She married Philip Giglio, her high school sweetheart, and the couple welcomed five children into their home. Her family remembers her as a strong and loving mother and grandmother whose strength was beyond reason. She had a young, beautiful spirit and was kind and considerate, always offering a helping hand. She was a shining example of grace and faith despite circumstances at times that were not for the faint of heart. She loved Broadway musicals...and was known to sing them quite often with her children and grandchildren as they cleaned. Bev was an avid fan of both UCONN Men and Women Basketball teams and was a passionate NY Yankees fan as well — although her favorite teams were the ones her grandchildren were on. She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed playing cards for hours...laughing and enjoying family. She always encouraged her children and grandchildren to pursue their goals, while always reminding them to keep family first.
