Author Stacy Feintuch

Stacy was a stay-at-home mom/part-time preschool teacher whose life was turned upside down in 2011 when her husband passed away suddenly of a heart attack.  She is raising her two fabulous daughters, now ages 18 and 20, who are turning into wonderful young women.  In 2016, she started a blog about her experience as a young widow, The Widow Wears Pink. This led her to write for other publications including Huffington Post, Today.com, Scary Mommy, Grown & Flown, Kveller, Modern Loss, Thought Catalog, and many more. In 2018 she started Living the Second Act with fellow writer Mimi Golub. Today, Stacy and her daughters  are happily living their "new normal" while always keeping her husband's spirit alive.

Carpooling As A Widow

Carpooling as a single person takes on a whole new meaning. I believe this goes for all single people – widowed, divorced, whatever. But for widows/widowers it’s even a little harder – this is seven days a week – 365 days a year.

I know I am not easy to date – I am truly a single mom. My girls are old enough to be left alone now, but a few years ago they were too young and it was important for me to be around for them.

Obviously I always thought Howie should be there.  I felt terrible that he was missing out on what would have been such a fun and happy time in our lives.

How Can I Make A Bat Mitzvah Alone?

How can I make a Bat Mitzvah and have a celebration like that without Howie? How can I sit through the service without him? I really didn’t know if it was possible for me to do this so soon.

Old Friends are the Best Friends ;)

I have had summers with these old friends when all is good in my life, and I have had summers when life has been at it’s worse.  But no matter what, I always smile and laugh when we are together.  It has been good for me.

Before I could stop myself, the words “Lily, would you like a dog?” came out of my mouth.  When she screamed “Yes!!”, I thought “Oh no, what did I just get myself into?”
