In memory of
LISA MARY RECCHIA
RECCHIA, LISA MARY Lisa Mary Recchia, age 53, of West Haven, passed away on October 11, 2016 at Yale New Haven Hospital. Born in New Haven on September 26, 1963, she was the daughter of the late James and Willa McGuire Recchia. Lisa is survived by her siblings, Donna (Galen) Nally, James “Sonny” (Sharon) Recchia, Michael (Patricia) Recchia, Theresa Recchia, Elizabeth (David) Forsyth, Eddie (Chantel) Recchia, Shelly (Carlos) Padro and nieces and nephews, Suzanne, Kate, John, Beth, David, Jason, Kristin, Francesca, Hayley, Jaycey, Max, Isabella, Erika, Alex, Emilie, and Joseph. In Lisa’s early years, she became a licensed hairdresser and ran a successful salon, which was her pride and joy. Later on, she enjoyed her most current employment at University of New Haven in food service. Lisa will always be remembered as a strong-willed personality who told it as she saw it. Her love for life and family defined her, as did her love for hairdressing and her “perfect cut” business that she cherished for many years. Lisa was as much a fighter as she was a caring soul, always living life to the fullest, full of laughter and a spark of energy. She will be dearly missed by her many friends and large family. In Lisa’s memory, keep those that you love close and never let anything come between you and the ones you love. And never forget to say “I love you,” as Lisa always did. A visitation will be held on Saturday from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM at the West Haven Funeral Home. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 AM at Saint Paul’s Church. Burial will be private. To leave an online remembrance, please visit our website at www.westhavenfuneral.com
