Nancy Mulinelli 71

September 11, 2013

Nancy Mulinelli was a cosmically connected writer and poet and known to have the biggest heart ever. A Long Islander, she lived on the East End for the past 25 years, notably, East Hampton and most recently Sag Harbor.

Nancy spent many of these years working at the Ross School, where the laughter and joy of the children brought her daily delight. Children held a special place in Nancy’s heart and children reveled in her presence.

She also loved working for the very generous Historic Films until she decided to relocate to the West Coast for a very short stint before knowing that the East End was where she needed to be.

“Ms. Nanceeta” lived her life in search of wonder and grace; the beauty of our area suited her to a tee.

Nancy enjoyed a starlit, albeit brief, career on the local stage participating in multiple productions

Nancy was a voracious reader, disappearing for days lost in the wonder of words.

The serenity of the local fellowships gave her peace and clarity. No matter where or who or what, Nancy lit the room with her twinkling eyes and drew friends to her like a magnet.

In Nancy’s words “celebrate life, time and love” and we ask that you do not mourn her end but celebrate her life.

Nancy will be missed by the many friends and loving family that she has left behind. Memorial to be held on Saturday at the Whaler’s Church in Sag Harbor at 11 AM and please make any donations to Special Players.
