Stacy Berloff, 42, of Brookline (formerly of Framingham) passed away peacefully after a long and courageous battle, surrounded and adored by her loving family. She was the beloved daughter of Myra and Howard Berloff and loving sister of Andrea Berloff and brother-in-law, Drew Filus. She cherished her niece and nephew, Sasha and Dashiell, enjoyed the love and support of her aunts and uncles and several cousins, and was profoundly grateful for the companionship of her faithful service dog, Billy.
She was a graduate of Framingham High School and attended Boston University and UMass Boston. Those who knew Stacy were struck by her strength and grace as she battled significant health issues for more than 30 years. She was a fierce advocate for the rights of people with disabilities and worked with numerous organizations in the city of Boston to assure equal access for all. Her legacy will impact people for years to come.
