Obituary for Mary Dileo

NEW HARTFORD – Mary (Sequenzia) Dileo, 88, went home to Heaven on Thursday, October 31, 2019. She was the loving wife of the late Joseph Dileo, Sr., for 64 years. Born October 18, 1931 in Winsted; the daughter of the late Paul and Josephine (Mancua) Sequenzia. She operated the Park Hotel and the Brookside Restaurant in Barkhamsted and turned that into the Valley Diner that she and Joe ran for 15 years before building The Log House Restaurant directly behind it in 1972. The Log House is still owned and operated by the Dileo family and has become her legacy of hard work, good food and family. Mary was renowned for the loving way she greeted each of her customers and her famous cream pies.
