Her first husband Kenneth Maykut pre-deceased her in 1998.

She received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Eastern Kentucky and her Master’s Degree from the University of Bridgeport.

Survivors include two brothers Peter Lomme of eastern Connecticut, and Terrence Lomme of Essex, and a sister-in-law Bette Lomme also of Essex, as well as two sons, Kenneth Maykut of Norwalk, and Jeb Stewart Maykut of Brooklyn, N.Y., a niece Wendy Lomme of Seattle, Wash., and two stepdaughters Michele Noble of Egg Harbor Township, N.J., and Meredith Lodge of Unionville, as well as three grandchildren, Thayer Noble, Alexander Noble and Lulu Lodge. She also leaves behind two cats Marley & Belle.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 10:30 a.m., (meet directly at church) at St. Mary’s Church, 70 Gulf St., Milford, with interment to follow at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Stratford.

Friends and family may call on Wednesday, Jan. 16 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Cody-White Funeral Home, 107 Broad St. Milford.
