Lisa Jane Massaro of Rocky Hill, CT, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April2, 2022, aged 66, in Hartford Hospital after a brief but hard- fought battle with bladder cancer. Lisa was born on September 12, 1955 to Mary Letizia Massaro and the late Carlo (Carl) Massaro in Norwalk, CT. She attended Central Catholic High School before graduating from Norwalk High School in 1973. She then received her bachelor's degree in English from the University of Vermont in 1977. Lisa spent most of her professional career working as an editor for Club Media. She also worked as a publicist and marketing manager for Rising Star PR, EMM Media, and Oronoque Village. Lisa loved to travel and thoroughly enjoyed the time she was able to live in far-flung places like Ducktown, TN, London, England, and Los Angeles, CA. She was especially fond of her condo in Monroe, CT, which became her perfect sanctuary, replete with purple furniture, purple walls, and glow-in-the-dark stars on her bedroom ceiling. Anyone who knew Lisa knows how much she cared about the little details being just right. Lisa was an avid reader, a lover of the arts, and a devoted daughter, sister, and aunt. Lisa is survived by her mother, Mary of Rocky Hill, CT; her brother Joseph Massaro of Wethersfield, CT; her nieces Reia Massaro (and wife Rose) of New Haven, CT and Jillian Massaro (and partner Kodi) of Rocky Hill, CT; and many beloved cousins. She was particularly close to her cousin Raymond Cook of Bethany, CT. A commemoration event will be held on Sunday April 10 at the Laurel Athletic Club in Norwalk, CT at 4:30PM. The eulogy and a chance for loved ones to pay tribute will begin at 5:00, followed by dinner and a celebration of life. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to your local libraries, of which Lisa was a lifelong champion and patron.
