Constance Pelino passed away peacefully on May 27th, 2022 in Manhasset, New York. Connie was the loving wife of Tino Pelino and caring mother of Susan Pelino.
Connie was born in Woodhaven, Queens where she spent her childhood with her parents, Margaret and Peter Triolo. Connie grew up surrounded by family, but also loved helping out in her dad’s pharmacy. As a teen, she enjoyed singing, playing piano, dancing and going to Brooklyn Dodgers games. After high school, Connie had a successful career working in Manhattan for an actuary and then a music composer in the Brill Building.
In 1960, Constance married Constantine (Tino) Pelino and welcomed their daughter Susan some years later. During the first 30 years of their 62 year marriage, Connie managed her husband‘s wedding band, which Susan also joined as a guitarist and singer in the 1990s.
Connie Pelino was very proud of her family and had a love for life. She is survived by her husband Tino and daughter Susan and will be greatly missed by the many friends who knew and loved her.
