In memory of
Cathy A. Wing
Cathy A. Wing, 64, of Cobalt CT passed at her home on February 14, 2017. She was born on 09/03/1952 in Newark, NJ, the daughter of the late John Harra and Carmella (Dolly Romano) Harra. Cathy loved being from New Jersey. She was a true Jersey girl and always said with pride "Jersey has the best bread"! In 1995 she was married to Stephen G. Wing. Upon marrying Stephen she welcomed an extended family that includes her mother and father-in-law Margaret (Peg) and Theodore Wing, sister and brother- in-law Kathleen and Dante Aiudi and their son Dante Aiudi Jr, and her beloved Step-son Michael Weed. Cathy was a Manager at Aetna Life and Casualty for 39 years where she met many of her of her closest friends especially Britt Nystrom and Cathy Goodrow Hartley, along with their families and the extended group of Aetnoids. Cathy believed in giving back. She volunteered at various local non-profit organizations. She loved her time at The Homeroom in Middletown where she helped local youth with their homework. She also served as a board member of Junior Women in East Hampton where she raised funding for local events and charities. Cathy also volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and was nominated to the Board before retiring to help raise her beloved grandchildren who she often brought to the food bank to make donations. Cathy was a vibrant and rebellious woman who loved her family and friends fiercely. She believed in family, equality, hard work, and fighting for her beliefs. She loved politics, dancing, the gym, Betty Boop, wine, bright lights and entertainment, amazing food, fancy clothes, cooking, being the perfect hostess, traveling, bowling, music, pop culture, and her good friend Elizabeth Arden who she swore attributed to her youthful glow. She was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in October 2016. Her plight was short and gruesome at times but she continued to fight until the day her light was extinguished on February 14, 2017.

Wing of Cobalt; her daughter Lalena and her husband Michael Salafia of East Hampton; her Step-son Michael Weed of Cromwell; and her grandchildren Skyler and Michael Salafia Jr of East Hampton.
