LoStocco, Nicole Laurie

Nicole LoStocco

Nicole Laurie LoStocco, 23, slipped away on Monday morning, September 5th, at home in Burlington, CT.  Nicole was born on March 7th, 1993 in New Britain, CT and was raised in Wethersfield and Burlington, CT.  She is a graduate of the Lewis S. Mills High School class of 2011 where she played lacrosse all four years, was involved in multiple school activities and was a member of Future Business Leaders of America.  She continued her education at Johnson & Wales University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management.  She recently started her career with Merritt Healthcare.

Nicole is the wonderful daughter of Laurie (Baumann) LoStocco and James “Jay” LoStocco, and the amazing older sister to Maddie LoStocco, all of Burlington, CT.  Besides her proud parents and sister, Nicole leaves behind her loving boyfriend, Patryk Kraska of Bristol, CT. 

She is the granddaughter of James and Patricia LoStocco of Avon, CT, and the “Precious Dove” of her Nona and Nono, Gerald R. and Eleanor (Bartini) Baumann of Lee, MA.  She also leaves behind her aunts and uncles, Jeff and Sandy Baumann of Sherman Oaks, California, Michael Baumann of Lee, MA, Steven and Rosemary LoStocco of Tolland, CT, and her very special aunt and uncle David and Carolyn LoStocco of Burlington, CT, as well as her cousins, Jeffrey Baumann, Melissa Leonard, and Lauren and Angela LoStocco.  She leaves behind so many close and loving friends—far too many to list.

Nicole is best described as a best friend to everyone.  She helped and touched more people in her lively 23 years than most people do in their entire lives.  Her vivacious energy and incredible sense of humor has left a permanent footprint here on earth, and she will be so terribly missed.  We love you so much, Colie.  No one will ever forget you!  Boop boop.

Nicole will be laid to rest at St. Joseph Cemetery in Bristol, CT, right next to her great friend, Vikki Barrow, where they can continue their antics together in their next journey.

    Laurie and Family,
    Eric and I are absolutely bereft for you all after this very tragic loss. My husband lost a daughter at age 3 and is just sick for you all. We will pray that with time, your tears, pain and suffering will be replaced by peace in your hearts every time you think of Nicole and the love, beauty, humor and goodness that she brought to your world.

    Sending you our thoughts & prayers during this very painful time.
    Beth and Eric
