Hannah Calista Sullivan, 82, of Portsmouth, passed away on Thursday, November 9, 2023. Hannah was the daughter of Mark and Hannah (Riley) Sullivan. A graduate of Stonehill College, she earned an M.A. in Medieval Studies at the University of Connecticut and a Doctorate in Education from Boston College.

She is survived by her dear friend and companion, Frances Ann Blumenthal, and her family: Patricia Sullivan, Geraldine Hall, Mark Sullivan, and Catherine Sullivan (husband Peter). She was the beloved
aunt to several nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
The family is grateful to the Visiting Nurse-Home and Hospice organization and to St. Clare Newport for their compassion and care during Hannah’s illness.
