Ida J. Berarducci, 83, of Plainville passed away peacefully on Sunday February 20, 2022 at Arden Courts in Farmington where she had resided for the last ten years. Born on March 5, 1938 to the late Alda (Ghiselli) and Andrew Berarducci, she was a lifelong resident of Plainville. She was also predeceased by her older sister Dolores and is survived by her many cousins. Ida worked as a buyer for more than 20 years until her retirement at The Stanley Works in New Britain keeping many a vendor’s pricing in line with her sharp pencil and quick wit. She later focused her efforts to knitting, gardening and in canning and preserving of almost everything she grew, becoming prolific at them all. There are no calling hours and a private burial will be held at a later date. All arrangements are being handled by the Farrell Funeral Home in New Britain where one can go and share a thought or memory of Ida on their website. Lastly, the family wishes to acknowledge and thank Arden Courts for the extraordinary care they provided Ida over the last years of her life.
