Grace H. Vuono, age 96, passed into eternal life on Thursday, October 3, 2019. She was born to Rose and Stephen Liptack on February 14, 1923 in Springdale. Grace was the beloved wife of Charles H. Vuono, who predeceased her by over a decade. She is survived by her three children and their spouses: Mark Vuono and his wife, Annie; Charlene Vuono-Julian of Groveland, Mass. and her partner, Joe Buchonis; and Sandra and Nelson Bondhus of Farmington.

Grace worked as a pattern model for Vogue and also as a member of the art department at Conde Nast Publications. She was a devoted wife and mother and had an extremely fine artistic flair for interior design. She was also known for her fabulous sense of fashion as well as for her personal beauty of body, heart and soul. She and Charlie both enjoyed collecting American antiques together. They frequently spent weekend getaways finding treasures to add to their collections. Until illness required her to move to Avon Healthcare Center in Avon CT, Grace was also a devoted Communicant of St. Cecilia’s Church for her entire life. She recalls attending, as a small child, the very first Mass held at St.Cecilia’s Parish in Machlett Laboratories.
