Concetta “Connie” Andretta, 81, of Denver passed away on October 22, 2023. She was born on July 23, 1942 in Kings County NY to the late Dominick and Dora D’Ascanio.
During her lifetime, Connie was a homemaker caring for her family. She was an accomplished black belt in Karate. She was an avid animal lover. She had a generous heart to many. After her husband passed away, she had a house built in Honduras for poor children and families. The home is dedicated in her husband Robert’s memory.
