It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Elfriede Bisson, 91, of New Britain, Conn., Sunday, April 14, 2019. Elfriede was the daughter of the late Peter and Maria (Hasslocher) Wehner of Gross-Gerau, Germany. She worked as a real estate administrator for Northeast Utilities until her retirement.

Elfriede was predeceased by her husband, Wilfred J Bisson; her grandson, Keith Tabellione; and her sister, Hildegard Splitt. She leaves behind her children to mourn her loss: her daughter, Irma Campbell and her husband Bruce, her daughter Joanne Perez and her husband Joseph, her daughter Carol Lucey, and her son Wayne Bisson and his wife Kim. Elfriede will be dearly missed by her six grandchildren: Marissa, Daniel, Jessica, Kelly, Bradley and Ashley, and great-granddaughter Kara. She also leaves behind her cherished nephew, Jorg and wife Dagmar, of Nauheim, Germany.

Elfriede was born in Gross-Gerau, Germany, where she met the love of her life, her future husband Wilfred Bisson, an American GI. They were married in Germany and came to the U.S. in 1952. In 1955, they bought a house in New Britain, Conn., where they settled to raise their family and fill their home with love for the rest of their lives.

Her love was boundless. She was kind, considerate, accepting, and devoted to her family. Her smile greeted everyone as though they were close friends. She will be dearly missed.
