Lisa Plocharczyk, 39, passed away at her home in Middletown on Tuesday, August 24th.
Lisa grew up in Southington, and excelled at the many activities she participated in during her youth, including dance, basketball, softball, soccer, horseback riding, and playing piano. She attended Southington schools, graduating from SHS in 2000. Lisa worked in the insurance industry as a claims adjustor, most recently at Lincoln Financial.
Lisa was a talented guitar player, even playing with a band for several years. Her happiest years, however, were when she was a member of Crossfit, as she loved the camaraderie of the gym and the excitement of competition. Lisa went on many adventures, such as travelling to Europe, going skydiving, and completing a Spartan race. She loved music, especially Tori Amos. She also enjoyed watching movies and playing cards with her family. Lisa was an animal lover and leaves behind her beloved cat, Mr. Peter. She joins her recently deceased cat, Miss Bear, in the afterlife.
Lisa is survived by her loving and devoted parents, Thomas and Janet Plocharczyk; her siblings, Thomas Plocharczyk, Jr. and Sandi Dowsett along with her husband, Jake Dowsett; her two favorite aunts, Gloria DePaolo and Lorraine Kaufman; several other aunts, uncles, and cousins; and many special friends she met along her journey. Lisa will be dearly missed and we will always keep her memory alive in our hearts.
