Mrs. Cognetta's Cake Tradition
When you suffer a loss of a loved one, everyone comes together to mourn the
death and share the many memories you've gathered throughout the years. Because
food is a form of comfort, you'd sit at the kitchen or dining room table to
share with others.
Knowing this, Mrs. Cognetta began baking cakes for each family she and her
husband served in Stamford which has become over a half century tradition.
She was the first funeral director in Fairfield County to start this
tradition, with others to follow. Mrs. Cognetta bakes approximately three
hundred and fifty cakes a year and with much care for both the Stamford and Norwalk locations.
Interestingly enough, families have come to expect this tradition. Every single family that we serve
will be presented with "Mrs. C's Cake".
