Christine (Chris) Paige Lozyniak, a longtime resident of Easton, passed into eternal life on March 23, 2022. She was 60 years old.
Christine was born on Nov. 20, 1961, in Manchester. She was the daughter of James and Cynthia Glenney and was raised in Granby. Christine graduated Granby Memorial High School in 1979, where she enjoyed athletics, and participated in both basketball and track and field teams, where she earned the nickname “Froggie” for her jumping ability.
During her summer vacations, she picked broadleaf tobacco in the Farmington Valley. After high school, she attended the University of Hartford on a basketball scholarship and played for the Hartford Hawks from 1980-81.
She met her husband of 38 years Andrew (Andy) in July 1983 and the two were married in September 1984. Four months after they met in 1983, Andy put down a deposit on an engagement ring. Andy wasn’t about to let the biggest and best catch of his life get away. After getting married they moved to Monroe, where their son Peter was born in 1993. In 1995, they moved to Easton, where they have lived ever since. Throughout his life, Andy has always referred to Chris as his “One and Only.”
Chris spent her entire life giving to others bringing love, joy and hope into each and every life she touched. She was selfless and a servant of all. Her delight in life was to bring others happiness. Chris never cared about a person’s age, race, ethnicity or background, she only cared about a person’s heart and character, and nothing else mattered. This way of living, treating others more important than yourself, is Chris’s lasting legacy.
Chris loved to boat, target practice in the back yard and spend time with her treasured friends and family. She loved to take boating trips to Block Island, Mattituck, Montauk and, most of all, the Sand Hole in Lloyds Neck, N.Y. Chris also always looked forward to her annual trips to St. Thomas, USVI, with her husband Andy and son Peter.
She leaves to cherish her memory her husband, Andy, and son, Peter, of Easton; her parents, James and Cynthia Glenney of Granby; her brother, John of Granby; her brother, Danny of Lyons, Colo.; sister-in-law, Cynthia LoCascio of Fairfield; brother-in-law, Richard and his wife Tamye of Charleston, S.C.; sister-in-law, Wendy and her husband, Albert of Chittenden, Vt., and her two wonderful nephews Casey and Jack Lozyniak. Chris was pre-deceased by her sister-in-law, Cathy Lozyniak Alexander; her brother-in-law, Richard LoCascio, and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Andrew and Florence Lozyniak. Her father-in-law referred to Chris as “Mary Poppins,” because he thought that she was practically perfect in every way.
Chris was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, sister-in-law and friend, and will be dearly missed by all.
