Obituary for Lisa Mary Etkin

ENFIELD - Lisa Mary Etkin joined her mother and father and our three dogs in heaven on August 11, 2019.  Lisa, my sister, had a beautiful mind.  She was an artist and a poet.  She could learn to read and write a new language in a few hours, Hebrew, Spanish and French were a few.  She read the Bible and could recite psalms without hesitation.  God was good to her in that way.  She loved watching the birds come and go and planting her flower garden in the spring.  She enjoyed watching Charlie, the squirrel, negotiate for nuts.  She had a fierce loyalty to family.  She was my sister, my friend, and my trusted confidant.  She enjoyed having pizza with her brother, Vinson.  Her friendships were built on love and respect.  Trust had to be earned.  She left this world on her terms and that was her master plan.  Many thanks to St. Francis Hospital and staff on the 7th floor for their fine care, and West Hartford Health and Rehabilitation, first floor staff for making Lisa’s last days on this Earth comfortable and a place for her family to gather during this time.  She leaves her brother, Vinson Sciolone and his wife, Lynda Sciolone, her sister, Lynne E. Turin, her brother-in-law, Robert L. Turin, and a niece, Rebecca Olesen.  She was predeceased by her parents, Llyod and Josephine Viola Etkin and the family dogs, Ollie, Cosmo and Caesar.  A prayer service will be held Sunday, August 18, 2019 at 4pm at the Browne Memorial Chaples, 43 Shaker Road. The burial will be private.  Calling hours will precede the service on Sunday at the funeral home from 2-4pm. For online condolences please visit
