Virginia (Zucco) Schibi

February 14, 1932 ~ September 1, 2020 (age 88)


Virginia Zucco Schibi

On September 1st, Torrington was robbed of a loving and vivacious lifetime resident.

Born on Valentine’s day 1932, Ginny was the daughter of Anthony & Stella Signorelli Zucco who arrived in America from Italy at the turn of the 20th century and made their home in Torrington, CT.  Her life was that of a typical American girl.  She worked as an operator at the telephone company and devotedly attended Catholic duties at St. Peters and St. Francis Parishes.  The camaraderie and dear friendships of her professional and devotional life brought her joy. Laughter was the salve of her life.  She loved regaling her family with tales about her single years being a masterful flirt.  In fact, her passion for life, infectious smile and warm brown eyes captured the attention of sailor and Korean War veteran David Schibi of Torrington.  They were married in July 1970 and joined forces to sell real estate while Ginny also worked in reception at the Summerville Assisted Living (Atria).  She adored her dog, Josie, who will be interred with her along with her numerous other loving pets.

She is survived by her brother and Torrington basketball legend, Raymond Zucco and his wife,  Kitty, of Willton, CT; Nephew, Jack Zucco and wife, Debbie of Wilton, CT; Niece, Janet Karabin and husband, Chris of Wilton, CT and her Grandnieces and nephews, Jacqueline & David Karabin and Allison & Johnnie Zucco.  Ginny was predeceased by her husband, David Schibi and her loving artist niece, Jennifer Zucco.

Ginny has been described as sweet, kind, independent, and “dig in your heels” stubborn!  She will truly be missed! 

Funeral Services will be held Friday Sept 4th11 Am at Saint Peter Church.  Burial will follow at New Saint Francis Cemetery.
