Obituary for Gloria DeMattia Osterberg

Gloria DeMattia Osterberg, age 81, of Niantic and formerly of Fairfield, the loving wife of the late Kenneth W. Osterberg, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, December 24, 2018 in Niantic. Born in Bridgeport to the late Joseph and Josephine DeMattia, she grew up in Westport and was a graduate of Staples High School. She was the co-owner with her husband of DeMattia Fuel in Westport for over fifty years.

Gloria enjoyed skiing and spending time at her house in Vermont. She also enjoyed going to the casino; seeing the horse races in Saratoga; and shopping and travelling with her special friend, Virginia to Alaska, Italy and Ireland in the past year. She was a very pious Catholic attending both St. Pius X Church in Fairfield and St. Agnes Church in Niantic. Gloria was kind and very generous to her family and friends. She lived life on her own terms and was always in charge. She was a member of the Waterford Women’s Club.
Gloria is survived by her two devoted sons, Kenneth Osterberg and his wife, Margie of Newington and Kurt Osterberg of Trumbull; her sister, Delores Carter of Essex; her special lifelong friend, Virginia Mullady whom she lived with in Niantic and her children, James, Alison and Meg Mullady; her cherished grandchildren, Joseph, Sarah, Ashley, Adam and Kyle; her great grandson; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, she was predeceased by her sister, Adele DeMattia. She is also survived by her beloved dog, Duffy.
