Bernice L. Ellis of West Hartford, died peacefully at home surrounded by family members on Saturday January 20, 2018. Born in Hartford in 1928, she was the daughter of the late Samuel and Dora (Kaplan) Lutin. After raising 4 children, she returned to school and graduated from CCSU.

An avid tennis player well into her 70's, Bernie loved watching sports, and followed the UConn Women's Basketball team with a passion. She was thrilled to have attended several Final Four tournaments. She was a devoted mother and grandmother, and handmade quilts hang in all her children's homes. Even her beloved rescue dog, Jake, had his own hand-quilted blanket. She leaves her 4 children: Marcie, Steven, Cathy, and Laurie, and their spouses. She also leaves 4 grandchildren: Sarah and Josh Tobin, Jennifer Plant, Katelyn Corpe, as well as 4 great-grandchildren.
