Jennie Ann (Palumbo) Asensio

May 23, 1928 ~ January 3, 2022 (age 93)


Jennie (Palumbo) Asensio, 93, of Plainville, beloved wife of the late Alfonso Asensio, passed away peacefully on Monday January 3, 2022.

The daughter of the late Mary (Palumbo) and John Palumbo, Jennie spent her early years in New Britain before settling with her husband in Plainville where she worked full time while raising her family.  

Jennie’s greatest joy was being a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and she relished in hearing everything going on in the lives of her family. Jennie also loved to entertain her many family members and friends.  Her home was always full of the smells from her love of cooking and the sounds of her laughter and was the gathering place where many memorable times with family and friends were shared; from holiday parties to setback games, the great times were plentiful and will be forever cherished.  Her laughter will forever be remembered in the many lives she touched.

She leaves her two sons, Richard and his partner, Chau Nguyen of CA and Robert and Susan of MA; her grandchildren, Lauren (Chris) Demake, Jill (Thomas) Olsen, and Robert Asensio; her great-grandchildren, Dominic, William, Renee, and Anna.  She is also survived by many relatives that held a special place in her heart, including her niece Joni Hamel and her cousin Josephine Bianca.  In addition to her husband of 68 years, she was predeceased by her beloved sisters, Rose Greco Forgione and Caroline Mascarucci, as well as her dear friends Bonnie Higgins and Roberta Bosco.

The family would like to acknowledge the wonderful loving care she received from Candida Gomes, and the teams at Anthology of Farmington, and Trinity Hospice. 

In lieu of flowers, Jennie may be remembered with contributions to the Trinity Healthcare Hospice at
