Donna L. Griswold Orrico, age 70, of Trumbull, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 3, 2023 at Bridgeport Hospital with her loving family by her side. She was the beloved wife of 49 years to Aldo Orrico. Born in Stamford, CT on March 31, 1953, she was a daughter of the late Bernard and Lorraine (Horton) Griswold and was a longtime resident of Stamford before moving to Trumbull.
