Sylvie Potashner died peacefully with her partner Seth Kershner at her side after a two and a half year struggle with gallbladder cancer. Sylvie was born in Montreal and at two weeks old moved to West Hartford, CT. She graduated from Simon's Rock College and The University of Connecticut School of Social Work, and trained in craniosacral therapy at the Upledger Institute. She worked at the CHP Family Network and The Kip Rockwell Family Center, and had a craniosacral practice. Sylvie was insistent about recognizing and respecting her own feelings and she dedicated her life to helping others to do the same. She was a rescuer of people and animals and an ardent vegan. Sylvie had many natural gifts. She was extraordinarily creative, as an artist, painter, musician, photographer, dancer, creator of crocheted rugs and many other craftworks. Her original children's toys were beloved by her nieces. In addition to Seth, Sylvie leaves behind her mother, Susan Potashner; father, Steve Potashner; brother, Ira Potashner and his wife, Eva Urtasun Sotil; nieces, Amaia Potashner and Eliana Potashner; Seth's mother, Barbara Kershner and many dear friends, including Vicky Linscott, Farah Kidwai, Kelly Pitts, Anne Thalheimer and Sara Thornton. There are also her beloved goats Daffer and Anabelle, dog Ginger (and the late goat Daisy and dog Lucky). A memorial service is being planned. Donations may be made to HospiceCare in the Berkshires, Maple Farm Sanctuary, Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary, Goats of Anarchy or a charity of your choice.
