Our beloved mother, Mary (Kufchak) Poll, 80, of Torrington, passed away on May 26, 2018, after a courageous battle with cancer. She died peacefully surrounded by family and friends.  

Mary was born September 15, 1937, in Torrington, CT, daughter of the late Nicholas and Edna (Vogellus) Kufchak.  She is survived by her three devoted daughters and their husbands; Christine & Michael Johnson of Kissimmee FL; Denise & Mark Silva of Naugatuck; and Marguerite Poll of Torrington.

Mary was devoted and selfless in her love and care for her daughters.  Her strength and fortitude during challenging times set an example for others. She had a sparkling personality and her sense of humor and joy would light up a room.  Mary loved music and love to SING!   She always had a song that gave her strength and brought joy to those who were with her.  A God-fearing woman of faith she was a member of St. Francis of Assisi Church.
