On Tuesday, August 2, 2021 Maureen Pagani Ludko, of Berlin, CT passed away. Maureen was born in New Britain, CT on December 16, 1944 to John A. Pagani and Irene Lonski Pagani. She met the love of her life, George Ludko, in high school. They would have celebrated 52 years of marriage on August 9th. Upon graduating from Mary Immaculate Academy in 1963, she went to work for Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company. After getting her feet wet in the business world, she moved on to a secretarial position at Heublein, Inc. In addition to her secretarial duties, she was sometimes called upon to sample and evaluate new food and alcoholic beverages produced by Heublein. A little work place perk. In 1980, after starting her family, and at the urging of her mother, Maureen returned to the work world; at first working part-time at Hartford Hospital in its Patient’s Account Department. This eventually became a full- time position. She then transferred to the Children’s Hospital where she remained until her retirement in 2010. Maureen enjoyed her trips to Cape Cod when the children were young and she especially loved the trips to Maine with George, East Boothbay being their favorite place. In addition, she was an avid reader and loved taking long walks with her sister Patti at Walnut Hill Park and Norton Park. Most importantly, Maureen was the most unselfish and caring person that we have been blessed to share a lifetime with. No matter what the circumstances, she would always be there, loving and supportive, offering nothing but empathy and understanding. She was, and always will be, a solid rock and a positive influence in all the lives that she touched. She will never to be forgotten. Maureen leaves behind her loving and caring family: her husband George Ludko, her son Christopher Ludko, her daughter Elena Marie Curry and her husband James Curry of New Britain and her sister Patricia A. Pagani of Plainville. She also leaves behind her brother-in-law, John Ludko and Pat Zepperi of New Britain and her sister-in-law, Deborah Jipping of Mason, Ohio and many nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind many dear and treasured life-long friends and cousins. She was predeceased by her sister-in-law Barbara Ludko Raymond. The family would like to thank Dr. James Flaherty, Dr. Brian Byrne and the staff of the Oncology Department at the Hospital of Central Connecticut. The family would also like to give special thanks to the hospice team and the doctors and staff on floors N-4 and C-5 for their excellent and compassionate care they gave to Maureen.
