Arline Mailhiot Carfiro, 72, formerly of East Hartford, South Windsor and most recently Woodlake of Tolland nursing home, joined her beloved husband in heaven on Tuesday, January, 10, 2017. Arline was born on August 15, 1944 in Hartford, CT to Denis Mailhiot and Marie Gince. Arline worked as a meat wrapper for Shaw's Supermarket for many years before retiring. Arline was an avid gambler and was never happier than when she was sitting with a Dunkin Donuts coffee and a pile of scratch-off lottery tickets. Arline is survived by her sister, Cecile Lacasse of DeLand, Florida and several nieces and nephews. Arline was predeceased by her husband, Joseph Carfiro, her sister, Antoinette Pfau and her brother, Roger Mailhiot. Samsel Funeral Home of South Windsor, CT is handling the arrangements. There will be no calling hours. Burial will be at the convenience of the family. Please feel free to leave a note of condolence for the family or a funny story about Arline on the funeral home's website at www.carmonfuneralhome.com In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to ECHN Visiting Nurses Hospice and Palliative Care, 8 Keynote Drive, Vernon CT 06066. Thank You to the staff at Woodlake of Tolland and, specifically, Arline's nurses, Niki and Jen for making this past year, and especially her last days, as comfortable as possible.
