Frances Mary Mazotas

Frances Mary Mazotas, 72, passed away on May 20, 2022. Born on October 10, 1949, to the late Edward C. and Helen B. (Bart) Mazotas, she spent most of her life in Harford, CT before retiring to Nantucket, MA.  Frances graduated from Hartford High School, attended Morse School of Business, and worked in the tax inheritance department for the State of Connecticut for over 30 years. As a devout member of Holy Trinity Church in Hartford, she was active with the Lithuanian Choir, a member of the Blessed Mother Sodality, and the Lithuanian-American Roman Catholic Women’s Alliance Chapter 17. Her love of music extended to both singing and enjoying performances that celebrated her Lithuanian roots.

When she retired, the State of Connecticut named, November 30, 2001 “Frances Mazotas Day.”   In Nantucket, initially residing with her brother and sister, Frances became a resident at the Fairgrounds House. She spent her time singing and playing music on her piano, attending plays, trips to historical sites, relaxing at the beach, and swinging on her swing.  Frances volunteered at the library.  At St. Mary, Our Lady of the Isle Catholic Church, she attended services and sang in the choir.  She took yoga classes at the Salt Marsh Senior Center. She loved playing bingo as often as she could. Frances spent her last year residing at Our Island Home SNF where she continued to enjoy the views of Nantucket from her swing along with the occasional bike ride with the Nantucket Wheelers. Daisies, known for their sweet simplicity and genuine beauty, were her favorite flower. Frances died peacefully with her siblings at her side.  She was known as a very gentle and sweet soul by everyone. She is missed dearly.

Frances is survived by her brothers, Anthony C. Mazotas of Nantucket, MA, Leo P. Mazotas and wife Kim of Marlborough CT, Benedict P. Mazotas and wife Ann of Shelton, CT, and her sister Barbara A. Mazotas of Waltham, MA, along with several nieces and nephews.  A memorial service is planned for 10:00 am on September 24, 2022, at Holy Trinity Lithuanian Roman Catholic Church in Hartford, CT, followed by interment at Mount St. Benedict Cemetery in Bloomfield, CT.  In lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made to Nantucket Wheelers Fund:
