Margaret Sulmasy Obituary

Surrounded by family and friends, an extraordinary woman, mother, wife, aunt, grandmother, and friend passed peacefully to heaven on Thursday, January 18th.

Peggy (Nana) Sulmasy was warm, caring, and devoted to her family, faith, friends, community and country.  Always ready to host a family event, do a jig, or just tease her grandchildren and great nephews and nieces, she simply lit up a room upon entering. Her devotion to her late husband and children was unparalleled.  

She is predeceased by her husband of 67 years, Warren Sr., her son Warren Jr., and her three brothers and two sisters.  She leaves behind a loving family including Dan and Lois Sulmasy (Washington DC), Cathy and Peter (Sulmasy) Thomas of Darien, CT, and Glenn and Marla Sulmasy of Old Lyme, CT.  Her 11 adoring grandchildren will all miss the time spent with her, and the true love she exhibited for each of them.  She always made each one feel special and was quick to correct their manners, grammar or even their haircuts at every opportunity.

A voracious reader, Nana pushed all to be their best, and to value education as the best way to develop as a person and as a citizen.  She was very active in local issues, and spent enormous time supporting the Nesconset Taxpayers Association. She was instrumental in the restoration of Gibbs Pond, Gibbs Pond Park, and the revitalization of the Nesconset Library.  Peggy followed national politics, and of course, Irish-American causes throughout her life.

Her amazing 91-year life spanned the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Kennedy Assassination, the Moon Landing, Vietnam, 9/11, and COVID, as well as the advent of Color TV’s, iPhones, and the Internet. 

She also spent many hours watching her Yankees and Giants (and even the Jets) over the years. Remarkably, she never, ever missed a birthday, or anniversary of ANY of her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews or great nieces and nephews.  She will truly be missed by all.
