Barbara Coppolecchia, Nee Pastre, 68 of Ridgefield departed on March 20th 2018. Pre deceased by her parents Ferdinand and Dorothy Pastre, she is survived by Anthony, her loving husband of 47 years, and her four children Leigh Hartung (Charles) Jamie Corday (Chris) Nicholas Coppolecchia (Victoria) Toni Lynn and her seven beautiful grandchildren Christopher, Ryan, Melanie, Kate, CJ, Connor and Maya.
