On May 15, 2019, Nicolette Marie Warisse Sosulski, loving daughter, sister and mother of two children, Peter and Nicholas, passed away from a year-long battle with lung cancer at the age of 56. Nicolette was born on March 20, 1963 in Louisville, KY to Nicholas and Doris Warisse. She grew up in St. Martha's parish and graduated from Sacred Heart Academy. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Government from Georgetown University, Washington, DC and her Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Washington, Seattle, WA. Nicolette found her passion in librarianship. The American Librarian Association, in their memorial resolution to her said, "She was a motivated information professional: relentless about investigating a research question, had a gift for connecting people to information, had a real knack for identifying areas of need and developing plans, Nicolette was all that a 21st century librarian should be." Nicolette loved all things Southern which included cooking, literature, and big floppy hats. She had a passion for animals, rescuing over a dozen dogs and cats, either finding them homes elsewhere or taking them in and loving them herself. Nicolette was an award winning author, a witty and phenomenal online communicator - she took online messaging and managing connections to a whole new level. Nicolette was enthusiastic, mindful, continuously curious, and loved. Nicolette is survived by her loving parents, Nicholas and Doris, her two children Peter and Nicholas, her sisters Jeanine and Michelle, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Nicolette's name to the Portage District Library, 300 Library Lane, Portage, MI 49002 to honor the wonderful profession and family of people who surrounded her in Michigan. A mass celebrating her life was held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Kalamazoo, MI on Thursday, May 16, 2019. Another mass celebrating Nicolette's life will be held Saturday, June 29, 2019, at 10:00 AM, at St. Martha Catholic Church, Louisville, Kentucky. We know that all her friends were not able to attend in Kalamazoo and may not be able to attend in Louisville, but please know we hold you in our hearts and thank you for your beautiful memories with Nicolette.
