Obituary of Terese Mazzocco Cannon

Due to Construction Improvements at our Facility, the Calling Hours will be held at:

Nicholas F Cognetta Funeral Home

104 Myrtle Ave, Stamford, CT 06902


A beloved grandmother, mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend, Terese Cannon passed peacefully on July 7th, 2024 at the age of 71. 


Terese was born in New York City to Terry and Ralph Mazzocco, their second child and only daughter. As a child Terese spent time at the ballet with her mother and always indulged in a sweet treat at home with her late father. 


Later in life, while working in New York City, she met her husband, Ed. After several moves from New York to Westchester, they eventually settled in Connecticut, where they raised a family mirroring Terese’s own: two boys, Preston and Brandon, with Alexandra, a girl, in the middle. Terese and Ed’s 42 year marriage exemplified love, companionship, and unwavering support, which was evident in the way they raised their family.


Terese was an extraordinary mother with a remarkable talent for recognizing the individuality in each of her children and guiding them accordingly. She loved unconditionally, always giving so much of herself to support others. She was an outstanding host and the most thoughtful gift giver, putting together magical holidays and experiences for her children and later her grandchildren. 


She was honored to be the grandmother of seven, affectionately known to them as Mia. She continued to inspire the next generation with her boundless love.


Terese is survived by her mother Terry, brother Raymond, husband Ed, three children and seven grandchildren, who will all carry on her legacy of love. 

The gathering of family and friends will take place Friday July 12 from 4pm to 8pm at Cognetta Funeral Home, 104 Myrtle Ave, Stamford, CT 06902.  A Mass Of Christian Burial will take place on Saturday July 13th 11am at St Aloysius Church at 21 Cherry Street, New Canaan, CT, 06840
