Obituary for Alberta A. Amaro (Cornell)

Alberta Amaro, 88, of Windsor Locks, entered into Eternal Peace on Wednesday, May 13, 2020
at St. Francis Hospital. Alberta was born on December 28, 1931, in New Bedford, MA, the
loving daughter to the late Harry A. and Rose E. (Westgate) Cornell. She enjoyed a working
career at the Creative School of Hairdressing in Manchester for 10 years as an instructor. Alberta
also owned and operated Alberta’s Beauty Studio. She was a proud participant of the 1995 Senior
CT Pageant, taking home the title of “Best Gown”. She enjoyed singing Karaoke, dancing, comedy and the theatrical life. Until recently Alberta was a member of The Troubadours, a traveling Senior Variety Show which entertained at Senior living facilities.
Alberta is survived by her Husband Gilbert R. Amaro, two children, Gil Amaro and his wife, Beth, and Peach Amaro and her husband Peter Bales and several nieces, nephews and grandchildren. According to her many wonderful friends Alberta never acted her age, lived life and enjoyed her young spirit to the fullest.
She was predeceased by her two sisters Elizabeth Dubiel; Marion Cosmos and her husband, John and three brothers, Harry, Henry, and Thomas Cornell.
Alberta loved animals and rescued many in her lifetime.
Due to the current public health crisis, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Alberta may be made to The CT Humane Society (!/donation/checkout).

So sorry to hear about Alberta’s passing. She was a member of our theatrical Group that performed a Roaring 1920s Dinner Theater.
She was great fun, and we enjoyed working with her. I extend my sincere condolences to her family and friends.

Peach, Berto and Gil, My mother, Lois, just saw the news. I am so sorry. Bert was one of a kind! She gave me my first perm, and taught my best friend at the hairdressing school. I loved visiting your parent's home when I was little. They would let me sit in the massage chair and give me daiquiri candies. May she karaoke in eternity!
xo, Nancy McHugh

Dear Peachy and Berto .... as your mom affectionately called you ... I'm so sorry to learn of her passing. I worked for her when she was on Main Street in Windsor Locks at her Beauty Studio. I loved working for her! I will always remember her 1966 Fastback, Mustang! She had a special friend, Hazel Munsie who was always there while we were working. They both attended my wedding. Sending love and sympathy to you! Jeannie Kelsey Marinone

Such a good friend to my grandmother Theresa. I remember her for her infectious energy and spirit. I hope you and Nana are sharing some laughs together. RIP Bert.

I already miss her. I lost her presence but not her spirit and the fun happy memories we shared. Someday, her and I will be singing and dancing together in heaven.
To the Family; please know that Alberta was well loved and liked by many people. I pray that her memories stay alive deep in your heart and keep you strong and smiling. Heaven gain an angel.
