In Memory of

Susan Marie Suros

August 23, 1952 - December 31, 2017


It is with great sorrow that her family announces the passing of Susan Marie Suros, 65, of Naples. Susan passed away at home, surrounded by loved ones, on December 31, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Susan was born in Bayonne, NJ on August 23, 1952. She graduated from Bayonne High School in 1970 and began working at the Port Authority of NY & NJ, where she met her husband, Oscar. She graduated from St. Peter's College in 1981 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and went to work for American Express. Her most cherished role, however, was being the perfect mother to her only child, Victoria.

Susan moved to Holmdel, NJ with her husband in 1985, where they lived for 27 years and made many life long friends. In 2012, Susan and Oscar moved to Naples, where Susan was able to enjoy viewing beautiful sunsets, golfing with the Quarry Ladies Group, serving as a communicant at St. Agnes, and being an active member of her book club and bible study group.

Susan had a gift for singing and shared her musical talent with others as a cantor and choir member at Holy Family (Union Beach, NJ) and St. Catherine's (Holmdel, NJ). Susan loved animals and had a special bond with her cat, Cricket. Susan also enjoyed traveling, having visited over 40 countries.
Whether with friends, family, or strangers, Susan demonstrated kindness and compassion. Susan was charitable by nature, volunteering for numerous organizations, including Avow Hospice, PETA, and Children International. Susan was an incredible mother and was heavily involved in all aspects and chapters of her daughter's life, from leading the girl scout troop, serving on the PTA, beaming with pride at any event her daughter participated in, and being referred to as a "second mom" by many of her daughter's friends. Susan was truly loved by all who had the great fortune of meeting her and her absence will leave a hole in the hearts of many.

Susan was predeceased by her parents, Salvatore and Dorothy Lupo. She is survived by her loving husband, Oscar, her daughter and best friend, Victoria, her dear brother, Andrew (Carolyn), her sister-in-law, Elvira (Tony), her sister-in-law, Purita, her beloved nephews, Jonathan (Christina), Ryan (Kelsey), Tony (Ana), Francisco (Ines), and Renzo (Sandra), as well as many valued friends and family members.
