Ann Stookey, 60, formerly of Chestnut Hill, an accomplished choral singer and floral designer, died Tuesday, Nov. 6, in Paris after a brain hemorrhage suffered while vacationing with her husband, retired Comcast Corp. executive Joe Waz.
Waz said the illness was "right out of the blue." The couple were traveling with friends through Turkey, Greece, Croatia, Italy, and France.
On Oct. 25, Ms. Stookey was not feeling well during a walking tour of cinematic history sites and returned to their hotel for rest. Waz found her stricken there.
The couple lived in Chestnut Hill for years. After Waz retired from Comcast in 2011, they relocated to Los Angeles to be near their son, Jack.
