Obituary for Nancy Anne Stasulis

Nancy Anne Stasulis of Bristol, Tennessee, passed away peacefully on November 28, 2015, at her residence at the age of 63.

Nancy was a native of Peabody, Massachusetts, and graduated from the University of Massachusetts, earning degrees in anthropology and paleontology, and later attended Harvard University. She worked for the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. for several years, as well as for the IRS as a field agent and auditor before taking a position as Office Manager of the Laytonsville Volunteer Fire Department in Laytonsville, Maryland. Following 20 years of dedicated service there, Nancy retired and moved to Bristol in 2012.

An award-winning artist, Nancy specialized in botanical and architectural studies. Her science fiction art also won many awards. Another of Nancy’s hobbies, baking, was recognized with several awards at Maryland’s Montgomery County Fair in the categories of pies, bread and decorated cakes. For several years she created beautiful cakes for baby showers and weddings, decorated with the handmade flowers and ferns that she studied and loved.

Nancy loved her cats very much, all of them rescued and adopted through the Humane Society over the years. Nancy spent time advocating for cat rescue and spay/neuter in the Bristol area. She was a volunteer at the Montgomery County Humane Society in Montgomery County, Maryland, and in Frederick, Maryland, where she contributed her art to their fundraising efforts and created the logo still in use by the Montgomery County Human Society.

Nancy is survived by her dearly-loved friends, Lucinda Brown and Peggy Brown of Bristol, TN, and considered herself blessed to have been “adopted” into their family 37 years ago. They consider themselves blessed to have known and loved her.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to the cat medical/spay-neuter fund she created at Ferguson’s Animal Hospital at 316 7th Street, Bristol, TN 37620.
