August 24, 1927 - March 17, 2021
Concetta Tuori, 93, passed away on March 17, 2021 unexpectedly. Connie was born in Syracuse on August, 24 1927 to the late Vito and Alessandra (Orso) Tuori. She was a graduate of North High School and received a Bachelor of Arts and Masters of Arts degrees in history from Syracuse University. Connie's urge to travel started at an early age. She would tell everyone that if wanderlust was inherited, the trait was passed to her from her father, who came to central New York from Italy at the age of 16. He joined the Army in order to travel the world. As a young child she listened to the stories of his travels and dreamed of doing the same. After she graduated from college, she traveled to Italy and France. A lifetime dream of traveling the world began at a time when a young woman traveling alone was unheard of. For the next 60 + years she pursued her dream, traveling to several countries on all 7 continents. In addition to souvenirs, photos and slides, Connie collected dolls from many of the countries. Her extensive collection includes hundreds of dolls which she cataloged. She enjoyed talking about her travels to family and friends, who enjoyed listening. Connie was a librarian and a teacher. She taught in Italy, Turkey, Syracuse, and California before retiring in 1982. She continued traveling until she was in her late 80's. Connie was also an avid reader. She is predeceased by her parents and brother, Guy. She is survived by nieces, Suzanne Leone (Pat), Sandy Tuori-Bell (Mark), Patty Tuori, nephews, Guy Tuori (AnnaMaria), Tom Tuori (Karen), Bob Tuori, several great and great-great nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends. Private services will be held on Wednesday March 24,2021 at Farone & Son, Inc. Funeral Home and burial at Assumption Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Whitebranch Library Trustees Gift Fund in memory of Connie Tuori. " Traveling - it first leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller." Rest in peace Connie Tuori, amazing world traveler, amazing storyteller.
