Lauren Del Bello

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Hartland, Vt. — A mass will be held at Our Lady of the Snows, Woodstock, Vt., on Friday, June 22 at 1 p.m., for Lauren Del Bello, 34, who passed away surrounded by her loved ones on Saturday, June 2, 2018, after a brief illness. A Celebration of Life will also be held in Buffalo, N.Y, on July 14.

Lauren’s too short life was filled with love for her family and friends. Sweet “Bello” was known to joyously sing any number of Broadway tunes, especially when the chance to travel came about. This including but certainly not limited to travels to the Islands with her fiancé and Portugal, Spain, Peru and the Galapagos Islands with college friends. She only needed to pack her contagious laugh to create cherished memories.

Growing up in Hamburg, N.Y., Lauren played soccer, lacrosse and hockey and continued that passion through William Smith College, playing intramural’s. Keeping the love alive, Lauren relished playing ice hockey in Woodstock with the Woodchicks and the Purple Haze. When not skating, skiing or golfing, Lauren was game to cheer on the Buffalo Bills or Sabres, and of course, the Red Sox!

While Lauren shared her huge heart and bright soul with everyone, she had found her true love in fiancé Robbie Pelletier. Engaged in 2014, they shared each other’s lives as best friends. The only solace in losing Lauren is knowing she is with her loving mother, Kathryn Rose Del Bello (Constantine) who predeceased her in 2014. Lauren’s spirit resides with her father, Douglas Del Bello, Sr.; her brother Douglas Del Bello, Jr. (Tarayn) and precious nephew Griffin; her sister Aimee Del Bello and nieces Kelsey and Megan Cenate. Lauren also leaves behind loving aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends and co-workers who feel lucky to have crossed paths with her.

“Goodbyes hurt the most, when the story was not finished . . . . .”
