On Monday, January 29, 2024, Nancy Sperati, age 73, passed away peacefully at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Youngstown. She was born on February 9, 1950 in Youngstown, OH to Harry and Helen (Maystorovich) Hulewat.
While we mourn the passing of Nancy, or Nanny as she is known to most, we celebrate a life filled with giving, love, and family. The middle child of three sisters, Nancy could be best described as a rebel – fiercely independent, a little stubborn, and adored with her beautiful blue eyes and infectious smile. As a mother of two boys who picked up her traits, she somehow managed a great deal of patience while passing on a legacy of love and empathy learned from her parents. In an era when kids were told to go outside and play somewhere, she encouraged her boys to invite friends over, with their house on Texas Ave becoming a place to gather for all the neighborhood.
As a grandmother, Nanny’s life revolved around her grandchildren, and her door was always open with a warm meal and a welcoming smile for all. And it wasn’t long before her house once again became a haven for a new generation of friends, most notably at lunchtime during school days when they gathered to eat, talk, and laugh. Nanny’s kindness and giving nature touched the lives of so many, and she always strove to pass on that legacy of love and empathy. She was a rebel, sister, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and neighborhood mom, and we will all miss her, but we are better people for having known her.
Nanny is reunited with her parents, Harry & Helen Hulewat, and says goodbye for now to her sons and daughters-in-law, Chuck & Shannon Sperati, and Joey & Suzanne Sperati; grandchildren, Paige & Michael Gonzalez, Julian Sperati, Hannah Sperati, Lucas Sperati; sisters, Jan & Ken Rambo, Mary Ann & Tony Pallante; nieces, nephews, cousins, and too many neighborhood friends to mention. For Nanny, family always came first, and she treated everyone who came into her home as family.
