Marion (Morzella) Banziruk, 97, of Torrington, CT, passed away Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at Valerie Manor.  She was the wife of the late John N. Banziruk.

Marion was born October 11, 1925, in Torrington, CT, the daughter of the late James and Fortunata (Russo) Morzella.  She raised five children and loved being a homemaker and wife.  Gardening, cooking, and making a gracious, loving home were important to her.  Her homemade pies are legendary.  Most memorable, she endeavored to let each child know how important each was.  She also dearly loved and cherished her brothers and sisters.

In addition to being a wife, mother, sister and friend, she was employed by the Torrington Company and PTC Aerospace in the factory until her retirement.  There she was honored for being a top producer. Marion passed surrounded with loving family at her side.
