CT woman who died from COVID remembered for her ‘big heart,’ ‘strength’

WOODBURY — Everything was falling into place for Kelly Lucas.

She had a new job, a new car and a new home. Described as selfless and big-hearted, she loved dogs and enjoyed going to concerts, flea markets and Siesta Key, Fla.

But then she and several others at her job at the ShopRite in Southbury tested positive for COVID-19. The 52-year-old Woodbury resident spent about two weeks in the hospital and died on Valentine’s Day.

“I lost a best friend, a lover and something I’ll never be able to replace in my life,” said Russell Pagano, her partner for 14 years. “It’s never going to be the same.”
