"Proud of her Irish Heritage"

PLANTSVILLE- Julia Stack age 97, of Plantsville, formerly of Waterbury, passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home surrounded by the love of her children on Sunday, January 2, 2022. She was the widow of Patrick Stack.

Affectionately known as "Sheila" and "Nana," Julia was born on April 13, 1924 in Rathoneen, Ardfert, County Kerry, Ireland, the daughter of the late Timothy and Ellen (Reagan) Carmody. Julia was raised and educated in Ireland and immigrated to the United States in 1952, settling in Waterbury, where she and her husband raised their family. After her children were grown, she worked at Saint Mary's Hospital until her retirement. Julia was a devout Catholic and former member of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians. Most notably, she was a dedicated mother and grandmother who helped raise her grandchildren and enjoyed spending time at the beach, shopping, and traveling. She especially treasured her trips to Ireland, Hawaii and Italy, with the highlight of that trip being when she was blessed by the Pope.
