Elsie Dablain Obituary

Elsie Louise Dablain, 99, of Torrington, passed away March 12, 2024 at Avon Health Center. Born March 27, 1924, Elsie was the daughter of Frank and Louisa Brignolo. She was the twin sister of Dora Videtto, and sister of Rose Peters, Josephine Bagnaschi, Margaret Peters, and John Brignolo. In 1945 Elsie married U.S. Army veteran Albert C. Dablain of Torrington. They built a home on Brightwood Avenue and raised five children: Rhonda (LoBrutto), Marcy, Mark, Alida (Ostrander) and Damien. Elsie and Albert were extremely proud that their children went to college and achieved advanced degrees. Elsie's daughter-in-laws, Lisa Dablain and Yumiko Dablain, and sons-in-law, Richard LoBrutto and Robert Ostrander, enriched our family and were dedicated to her well-being. Besides many nieces and nephews, Elsie leaves behind six grandchildren: Rick LoBrutto, Marcy Katherine Ostrander, Chikara (and wife Laura) Dablain, Colin Dablain, Nathan Dablain and Takeru (dec.). Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Segolene and Gabrielle Dablain, brought Elsie much joy. Nephew Gary and Niece Karen were especially devoted and loved. Elsie will be remembered for her kindness, incredible cooking, sewing and knitting skills, strong faith, love of cards, books and gardening. Besides knitting bandages for lepers and attending daily Mass, Elsie served as President of the St. Maron's Women's Club. A special thanks to the excellent nursing care (Carlene, Liz, Blondelle) and social work (Ethel) professionals at Avon Health Center.
