Phyllis (Caputo) Therrien, 87, of Bristol, widow of Russell Therrien, passed away at Bristol Hospital on May 7, 2022. Born in Bristol, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Marietta (Ferraro) Caputo. She resided in Bristol her entire life, and was a member of St. Joseph Church. Phyllis worked as a secretary for the Bristol Housing Authority for many years.
Later in life she found herself at home working at Patrick Baker & Sons in Southington. Phyllis had a strong Catholic faith and a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. She lived her faith throughout her life, caring for family members and friends, volunteering at her church, and donating to numerous causes, especially children in need. She was an amazing cook and baker, and her biscotti cookies were in high demand during the holidays. Phyllis is survived by two sons, and a daughter-in-law Michael and Jill Therrien of Bristol, and Louis Therrien also of Bristol; two daughters Leslie Ruggerio and Gigi Barnard both of Bristol; a brother Thomas Caputo of Bristol; four grandchildren, Marisa Barnard and Eric, Sydney, and Kacie Therrien, and several nieces and nephews.
