The family of Nuria Jumaevna Thusius, M.D. has received the following condolences.
I am a fellow Psychiatrist and I think Nora was a beautiful soul. I knew her only through our online support groups, but her death has touched us all. My love and my whole heart go with her family and friends. Such a lovely person....rest in sweet peace.
Vibrant, witty, funny, beautiful... probably only few qualities that would fall short describing her precious soul. Even though I have never met her, I felt like I did. I am so saddened with your loss.
I am so sorry for your loss. Nuria was such a joy. She impacted many and will be missed. Her earnestness, compassion, intellect, and wit made her such a positive role model to those around her. I am honored to have called her colleague. More importantly, I was lucky to call her a friend. I will not forget her sense of humor and the way her laughter filled the room.
I want to express my sympathy in Nuria's passing. I worked with her in Addiction Services for the last 5 years. She was so much fun to be around and it is hard to believe she is gone. She will be missed. What I loved about her is that she was so real and blunt with patients. Especially if it meant life or death for them. She cared about people and wanted to get the message across about how important it was to stop drinking or using drugs. I will miss her sense of humor, with her giggle after a sentence and her gut busting laugh. She loved you all so much.
I honestly do not believe there was a time where Nuria and I did not laugh, and laugh loudly, whenever we were together. I will miss her tremendously, and will cherish every moment I spent with her. She was always smiling, vibrant, and showed how much she loved her family, and her practice. I am honored that I knew a woman as lovely as Nuria.
I am so sorry for your loss Patrick Your wife is beautiful. My thought and prayers are with you. If there is anything I might do--all you have to do is ask.
I loved working with Dr. Thusius. She was beautiful inside & out. Kind, compassionate & understanding with a wonderful sense of humor. The world is a poorer place without her.
Dr. Thusius will be so missed. Her smile was so contagious! She was so caring to all patients and employees. My thoughts are with her family as they are heading onto the road of recovery.
I will always remember and miss Dr. Thusius I have known her for years she has been my doctor and helped me in so many ways possible. I can't believe you are not going to be with us anymore but I know because of you always believing in me I wouldn't of been where I am today without you I will cherish our memories and will remember all the times we talked laughed and seeing you light up the room with your smile and how beautiful you are. I want to give my condolences to her family and I am very sorry for your loss I know how much she loves her children and husband as she always talked about how special they are. May God bless you all.
I never knew Nuria personally but we communicated in a facebook group we were both part of. I loved her sense of humor and funny stories and looked forward to reading her posts. We all are so sad. I hope her family finds some peace in this trying time.
I will miss Dr. Thusius' warm smile and vibrant personality. She had a great sense of humor! My thoughts are with her family at this time.
I never met her, but only knew her through the facebook WPG group. She is an amazing soul, a bright light that shone with purity. May He give all of us the courage to bear her loss.
I only knew Nuria through words, not in person. I was looking forward to meeting her in person at a conference later this year. She touched my life with her wit, charm, fierce intelligence and incredible compassion. I can only imagine the force of her personality when sharing a room with her. I’m betting she was a whirlwind of laughter and energy. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Nuria was a delight to know, even via the Facebook group that we shared. She was insightful, cared about giving good care and compassionate about her patients. She was an excellent colleague and modelled the ideal sisterhood of medicine. She is already greatly missed.
Nuria made an indelible dent in the world, improving everyone (patients, colleagues, trainees ... everyone) around her. Always laughing, joking, and unfailingly the smartest person in whatever room she was in, she changed lives. It’s small solace, but you should know how important she was, how much she mattered to so many people. She will be missed thoroughly.
