Jennifer Markstein Obituary
Jennifer Markstein, 69, passed away surrounded by loved ones in Florida on November 6, 2012 due to unexpected complications from a stroke. She was born in Hartford, CT on July 7, 1943 to Robert Manley and Jenny Mae Adams. As a child, Jennifer aspired to become a nurse, but first worked for SNET for 29 years and then followed her dreams to become an LPN later in life. She lived life to the fullest despite an ongoing battle with breast cancer since 2004. Jennifer never met a stranger she didn't fully embrace into her circle of friends and family. We will sincerely miss her well intended suggestions and her eternal guidance. She is survived by her loving husband, Michael Markstein, daughter, Diane Berntsen and husband Ray, her step-children Marcia and Michael Scott Markstein and wife Christine, her grandchildren, Danielle Orbach, Shannon Orbach and husband Carlos Valladolid, Taylor Markstein and Nicholas Fluet and her sister-in-law, Andrea Litton as well as many dear friends and extended family. She was predeceased by her daughter, Linda Litton.

A memorial service will be held at Center Congregational Church in Manchester, CT on Wed, Nov. 28th at 6:30 PM. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her memory to either St. Francis Cancer Center in Hartford or Center Congregational Church, charities that were near and dear to her heart.
