Sheila D. (Quinn) Lizotte


Kensington, N.H. — Sheila D. (Quinn) Lizotte, just 15 days shy of her 72nd birthday, died unexpectedly at her home in Kensington, N.H. early Tuesday morning, March 26, 2013. She was the beloved wife of Robert E. “Buzzy” Lizotte, with whom she shared her life’s dreams, joys and adventures.

Sheila embraced life wholeheartedly. Whether boating or snowmobiling with her husband or taking yoga or pilates classes, her enthusiasm was apparent as was her positive outlook.
