WALLINGFORD-  Martha E. Stopkoski, 65, beloved Mother, was called to her eternal resting place on September 27, 2021. She entered this world on July 18, 1956 in Munich, Germany, to the late Nelson and Margaret Stewart. Born in the midst of her parents army career, they finally settled close to family in Wallingford.

Marty is at peace now with her ever beloved late husband Stanley Stopkoski, her Stan My Man of 25 cherished years. 

She's embraced again eternally by her late mother/best friend Margaret Stewart, her witty devoted life long partner. 

She is survived by her daughter Toni Maynard & Son in law Jaysun Maynard; son Mario Parrotta & daughter in law Thea Denslow; son Dominic Parrotta & daughter in law Michelle Parrotta; brother Marc Stewart & sister in law Ginny Stewart, Nephew Brett Stewart, Niece Shelley Stewart; Grand children: Mario Parrotta III, Alyson Maynard, Dominic Parrotta, Jett Maynard, Cody Parrotta, Nico Parrotta; twin great grand children: Mario & Valentina Parrotta.

Marty was a loving Mother & Grandmother who gave her all to her family. We will never be able to fill the space left behind by her.

Her passion spread in many directions. Marty loved creating many wow factor things such as her holiday decorating, crocheting, giving to those in need & cooking extravagantly. She achieved her life long aspiration of creating her family cookbook that will forever be cherished in her kids kitchens. She had passionate love towards all her friends and family.

Her interest returned to education in her adult life completing her high school career receiving her diploma. A satisfaction she was ever so proud of.

She and Stan dedicated many years as independent contractors to the newspaper, Record Journal. 364 days of the year, with one day off for Christmas, consistently for over a decade.
