Aurora Trotta (Wrang) Krupke died suddenly after a brief illness on Wednesday, February 21, 2018.  She leaves her beloved husband and best friend of 30 years, John, and her two loving children, Kaila Aurora Krupke and Gregory John Krupke. She was born in Middletown, CT April 17, 1962 to Josephine (Trotta) Poliner of Wallingford, CT and the late J. Peter Wrang. She leaves her sister, Jo-Anne W.

Lewis and her husband, Donald; and their daughter, Sarah; her brother, James P. Wrang and his wife, Victoria, and their daughter, Caitlyn. She also leaves several aunts and many cousins. Aurora was a longtime employee of Northeast Utilities and until recently, secretary in the law firm of Myron J. Poliner.  Aurora and John enjoyed camping, canoeing and water rafting. Aurora loved collecting rock specimens and has accumulated a large collection. She and John vacationed last summer at the Herkimer Diamonds outcrop in New York where she dug up some beautiful quartz crystals close to five hundred million years old. As a child she spent each summer at her grandmother’s cottage in Milford. Aurora was also an avid New York Giants fan and enjoyed going to games. Aurora and her family vacationed regularly in Newport one of her all-time favorite places. Aurora is a graduate of Mercy High School, Class of 1980, and attended Eastern Connecticut State University. The Krupke family would like to thank the nurses, the doctors and the staff for the wonderful care she received at Danbury Hospital in the last months.  Aurora’s cheerful nature and wonderful smile will be missed by her family, friends and all her knew her.  Aurora was a loving wife, mother, daughter and sister who will be greatly missed by all.  May she rest in peace. The family will receive friends from 4 – 7 PM Tuesday (Feb. 27th) at the Aurora-McCarthy Funeral Home, 167 Old Hartford Road, Colchester.  A Chapel Service celebrating her life will be observed at 6:30 PM during the visitation.  As Aurora was an avid animal lover, the family suggests that those who wish make a donation in her memory to either the CT Humane Society, 701 Russell Rd., Newington, CT 06111 or to the Ledyard Animal Control, 889 Col.
