Dawn Alice Czcinski Pinkowish, aka, Dawnie Bird, traded in her skis for a set of wings on Sunday, March 8, 2020, with her husband at her side. Born February 27, 1958 in Hartford, CT to Theresa (Spielman) Czcinski and the late William Czcinski, Sr. She lived most of her life in Bristol, graduating from Bristol Central High School in 1975. Dawn loved to ski. When she was on the slopes or dancing through the trees, you could not wipe the smile off her face. In her early years, Dawn taught skiing at Otis Ridge, and later on, was a member of Mount Southington Ski Patrol for 20 years. She was also a talented artist, painting beautiful works of art for her friends and family. She worked at the family business, the Artificial Flower Shop, designing silk floral arrangements and making crafts. For many years she was also a director with the Pampered Chef, where she made many lasting friendships. Gardening was one of her favorite pastimes. Dawn recently got her Master Gardeners certificate, which was a great accomplishment. She enjoyed spending hours in her garden nurturing her flowers, herbs, and veggies that won her countless blue ribbons at local fairs. Dawn inherited her love of fishing from her mom. Starting out at an early age in brooks and lakes, finally cruising Long Island Sound on the boat with her best friend and love of her life, Steve. Most times, Dawn was reeling in the biggest catch, rivaling her fellow fishermen. Besides her husband of 24 years, and her mother, she is survived by her brother William Czcinski, Jr. (Karen), her sisters Carol Atwood (William), Terry Hebert (Daniel) and her niece and nephew Amanda Atwood, Dr. William Atwood (Julia) and their children Anna, Will and Michael. She also leaves her father-in law, Al Pinkowish and brothers-in-law, Tom (Mary) Pinkowish, Peter (Mary) Pinkowish, and Jan Pinkowish. A niece Caroline and nephews Michael and Alex, as well as countless family and friends. She was pre-deceased by her father William Czcinski, Sr. and mother-in-law, Judy Pinkowish. The family would like to thank Dr. Brandt and her caring staff from the Torrington Branch of Yale. Dawn considered her the best doctor she ever came across. Her, including her staff in Torrington, were wonderful. A funeral mass will be held Thursday, March 12, at 10am at St. Joseph Church, 33 Queen St., Bristol. Burial will be at the convenience of the family. Calling hours will be held Wednesday, March 11, from 5-8pm at DuPont Funeral Home, 25 Bellevue Ave., Bristol. Please wear something blue or purple which were her favorite colors. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Yale New Haven Hospital, Smilow Cancer Center, 20 York St., New Haven, Conn. 06510.

Dear Theresa Carol, Bill and Terry,

I am extremely saddened to learn of Dawn's passing. The first time I met her, she had a smile from ear to ear and had the ability to make you feel as if you had known her for years. She was a special soul that exuded love and light. Even though we had lost touch for a number of years, anytime I bumped into her it was as if we had seen each other only yesterday. I have many fond memories of spending time with her, her cousin Holly and the family. She will be sorely missed. May all of you including her husband and extended family find comfort in knowing that God now holds her in the palm of his hands. 🙏

God bless you all.

Much love, ❤
Marcia Hurd (formerly Duval)

I will miss countless walks, swimming in the lake & just laughing & enjoying the beauty of each day with Dawn. Dawn was a gift. She always went over & beyond wanting to feed you whenever you visit, getting you tea or a beverage or cutting some flowers to hand to you as you left from visiting. So kind, giving & loving. Her desire to live each day to the fullest is a gift for us all to follow. I will miss seeing her smile.
