Aida Seco Reiske



Text Size

Aida Seco Reiske, 75, of Sandy Hook, passed peacefully on October 3. Aida was born in Fall River, Mass., the daughter of Jose and Aida Seco.

Aida is survived by her brother, Antonio Seco of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; her daughter and son-in-law, Tammy and Wayne Clinton of New Milford; her daughter and son-in-law Elizabeth and Michael Gallo, and their sons, Ryan and Derek, of Brookfield; and her son Eugene Reiske of Monroe.

Aida spent most of her career as a state employee. She spent the first 20-plus years at Fairfield Hills Hospital and when Fairfield Hills closed, she moved to Bridgeport Mental Health. Upon retirement she volunteered and later became an employee at Newtown Senior Center. Aida spent time traveling: bus trips to the National Parks, Mexico, Bermuda, Machu Pichu, and Costa Rica. She was fortunate to be able to check off many great destinations. She would love to return home and share the details of her trip with her family.

She loved the holidays and sharing traditions with her family. Aida was happiest hearing stories from her children or grandchildren about their adventures. Time with her family meant everything, whether she was baking with her grandsons, crafting with her daughters, or chatting with her son, she was in her glory.

A celebration of Aida’s life will be held at the convenience of the family. Donations in Aida’s memory may be made to the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps, PO Box 344, Newtown CT 04670; or to Regional Hospice of Western Connecticut, 30 Milestone Road, Danbury CT 06810.

    My sincere condolences to everyone who traveled her path. All the love Aida gave freely is still here along with the wonderful memories she helped make. Aida was a multitalented woman and gave freely of her time and expertise, inspiring many. Aida touched and nurtured many lives along the way. I have been blessed to have known her daughter Tammy (whom I consider my daughter as well) and son-in-law Wayne for many years. No doubt Aida’s legacy will live on through her children and all she loved. May the love of many give you comfort and peace in the difficult day ahead. Love never dies. Much love, Donna Williams.
