YOUNGSTOWN — Stacy Lee Burns, 44, departed this life unexpectedly Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020.

To the surprise of her parents, Stacy uniquely arrived Oct. 24, 1976, in Dunkirk, N.Y., followed by her identical triplet sisters, Amanda and Cara. Her life of adventures and her passion for helping others led her to accomplish a master of science in nursing degree from Youngstown State University. Stacy shared her brilliance through education and mentoring for many years. She worked currently as an advanced practice nurse for Signify Health, continuing her care in our communities.

Stacy married Nicholas Burns on Aug. 20, 2007, in Las Vegas, creating a beautiful family with Josephine and Lily. Her greatest joys were supporting her daughters at softball games, bowling matches and school band concerts, as well as building many other memories with her family. Some of her best times were spent going to rock concerts, summer vacations and sharing her love for sewing, scary movies and the Grateful Dead with Nick and the girls. She also loved spending time with her sisters, Panda and Bear.

Stacy is survived by her devoted husband, Nicholas Burns; two cherished daughters, Josephine Lee and Lily Ann Burns at home; loving parents, Norman and Donna Sam of Austintown; her sisters, Amanda Sam of Youngstown and Cara (Quentin) Brown of Woodville; sister, Beth (William) Crudden of West Lafayette, Ind.; two brothers, Matthew Sam of North Lima and Mark Sam of Dunkirk, N.Y.; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
