Kristin Vollero Obituary, Death – After a valiant fight against colon cancer, North Haven resident Kristin Toscano Vollero, born in 1975 and passing away in 2022 at the age of 47, passed away in a peaceful manner on December 24, 2022 at home with her family by her side. She was the daughter of Joseph and Santa Toscano, both of North Haven, and was born in New Haven on March 7, 1975. Both of her parents were also from North Haven. She was the devoted and loving mother of her two incredible daughters, Alexandria and Victoria, as well as the loving wife of Salvatore Vollero, Jr., whom she cherished deeply.
She received her bachelor’s degree from Assumption College, her master’s degree from Southern Connecticut State University, and her administration certificate from Sacred Heart University after completing her education at Sacred Heart Academy, where she graduated with honors, Assumption College, and Southern Connecticut State University. St. Bernadette Parochial School, New Haven Public Schools, North Haven Public Schools, and Wallingford Public Schools were all part of her professional experience in the field of education.
She cherished her roles as an educator and a school administrator, and for many years she served as the principal at Pond Hill Elementary School in Wallingford. Throughout her illness, the teachers and staff at Pond Hill Elementary School, as well as the rest of the Wallingford school system, have shown an incredible amount of affection and support for her, and her family will be grateful to them for the rest of their lives. During this extremely trying time, Kristin and her family have been supported and comforted by a large number of her friends and colleagues.
The family would like to express their gratitude to all of these individuals. Her two daughters, Victoria and Alexandria, brought her the greatest amount of happiness, and she took great pride in being their mother. She went to every single one of their games, whether it was basketball, tennis, or lacrosse, and she cherished every single second of it. Both she and Sal inspired the young women to achieve their academic potential and to behave morally at all times. She will remain in all of our hearts forever, and she is survived by her godparents, Thomas and Annette Toscano of New Jersey, as well as her father and mother-in-law, Salvatore and Marie Vollero of East Haven.
