Obituary of Marija Visinski
Marija Stelcer Visinski, age 81, of Shelton, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of the late Josef Visinski. Born in Murscak, Slovenia on June 19, 1939, she was a daughter of the late Franc and Marija (Kosar) Stelcer and was a longtime resident of Shelton.
Marija and Josef came to America from Slovenia in 1961, building a life dedicated to hard work and creating loving memories along the way. Marija was the epitome of living life to the fullest and cherishing every moment. Whether it was her baking, fashion choices, or her endless optimism, the impression she made on everyone lasts a lifetime. For both new and old friends alike, "Nana" will be remembered as the life of the party and the brightest light to enter any room.
Survivors include her three loving children, Josef Visinski and his wife Helen of Shelton, Andrew Visinski and his wife Jill of Sandy Hook and Rozalyn Visinski of Trumbull, four beloved grandchildren, Josef Karl Visinski and his wife Emily, Simona Ana, Alexandria Lynn and Mikaela Lee Visinski and a cherished great granddaughter, Siena.
