Obituary



Karin (Dubreuil) Diamond, 31 of Tariffville, CT, passed away in the comfort of her home on September 21, 2013, surrounded by her husband, family, and friends after a courageous four-and-a-half year fight with Hodgkin Lymphoma. Karin inspired others through her love of life, her respect for everyone, and her gift of words. She was passionate about people, wellness, learning, and living with intention. Karin enjoyed being active and connecting with her many friends from all around the world. Karin was beautiful, gentle, compassionate, smart, outgoing, and she radiated love.

She took great pride in crafting her writing that she posted on her website EyesPeeledAlways.com. Her work was featured in The Huffington Post, The Hartford Courant, Hartford Magazine, Cure Magazine, and other publications. Karin was a graduate of Torrington High School (2000) and the University of New Hampshire (2004), then worked in the Greater Hartford area in editing, marketing, writing, public relations, and communications.

Karin is survived by her husband Craig Diamond and her Sammy-dog of Tariffville, CT; her parents Paul and Laura Dubreuil of Torrington, CT; her sister Kristen Dubreuil of Denver, CO; her brother Michael Dubreuil and wife Rachel Pianta of Westbrook, CT; her brother and sister-in-law Eric and Rachel Diamond, nephew and niece Jake and Anna of Norfolk, MA; Uncle Kevin Brothwell; Uncle Mark Brothwell and his wife Roberta; and countless others who loved her.

A Celebration of Life gathering will be held on Saturday, October 5th, 2013 from 2:00 - 5:00 PM at SummerWind Performing Arts Center, 40 Griffin Road North, Windsor, CT. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Karin’s memory to First Descents, which provides outdoor adventures for young adult cancer survivors, or Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s Visible Ink writing program.

  1. I love that Sammy was included. When my brother died several years ago, we included his beloved dog in his obituary as well.

    Karin's family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Karin was a beacon of light for all of us living well with Lymphoma and other chronic conditions. I happened upon her blog right after I was diagnosed with NHL. Every time I read her writings it gave me courage and great insight into how to live well with a chronic condition. Karin, you are a part of all of us now; thank you for being our teacher.
