WINTERVILLE, N.C. — Marilyn Ruth Plashinski O'Boyle, of Winterville, a daughter of Daniel and the late Mary Morgan Plashinski, formerly of Plymouth and Trucksville, mother to Erin E. O'Boyle, Winterville, and sister to Kristin Kasabucki, Cromwell, Connecticut, returned home on Monday, April 14, 2014, at Hartford Hospital, after a short but courageous battle with cancer. She did so with grace, dignity and the spirit of an angel.
Her constant positive attitude and spirit attracted everyone to her, gaining the admiration of all her caregivers during this time.
A child of God, Lyn entered this world on Jan. 17, 1961, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and was created in His image as a vessel with unbelievable gifts to share with those whom she was in contact with. She believed her destiny was planned by Him, even before she arrived on earth 53 years ago, knowing that He would never give her more than she could handle and that each and every day was a blessing.
Lyn graduated from Dallas High School, Dallas, in the class of 1979, resided in the Greenville, North Carolina, area for the past 31 years and moved to Connecticut to be closer to her father, a resident at Hospital for Special Care in New Britain, Connecticut, and her sister, Kristin. She was a valued member of the Connecticut Chiropractic Association staff and will be greatly missed.
She was greeted in heaven by her mother, Mary Bernice Morgan Plashinski, Plymouth; maternal grandparents, Sydney Arnott and Ruth Patton Morgan, Plymouth; paternal grandparents, Harry and Mary Kacan Plashinski, Larksville; George and Vivian Morgan Carpenter, Clarks Summit.
She is survived by her daughter, Erin O'Boyle; sister, Kristin Kasabucki; brother-in-law, Edward; father, Daniel; and stepmother, Constance, Newport News, Virginia.
There will be no viewing or calling hours as Lyn did not believe in goodbyes – only "toodles" and see you soon, leaving you with warm and compassionate hugs. Interment will be at the convenience of the family in North Carolina.
A Celebration of Life service will be at 10 a.m. Saturday in Prince of Peace Episcopal Church, 420 Main St., Dallas.
The family asks that in honor and celebration of Lyn's life, gifts be made in her memory to Hospital for Special Care, Patient Technology Fund, 2150 Corbin Ave., New Britain, CT 06050.
Notes of condolence can be sent to: Daniel Plashinski, Hospital for Special Care, 2150 Corbin Ave., New Britain, CT 06050; Kristin Kasabucki and Erin O'Boyle, 13 Washington Road, Cromwell, CT 06416.
