Susie’s life was characterized by her care and concern for others. She was President of the Resident Council at Westfield Care & Rehab in Meriden where she was an advocate for the resident’s concerns. Staff at Coccomo expressed to the family she was a light who exuded love, was a beautiful soul in and out and deeply loved by everyone.
Susie’s children will forever be grateful to the staff at Westfield and Coccomo for treating their mom like a family member instead of a patient.
There will be a private gathering amongst family and friends.
