Margo Susan Masciantoni Obituary
Masciantoni, Margo Susan Grannick
72, of Phoenix passed away on August 18, 2015. Margo devoted her life to helping people, becoming a nurse early in her life. Margo then attended and graduated from the St. Francis School of Nursing in 1984 earning her R.N. degree. It's worth mentioning she graduated at the top of her class, giving her valedictorian speech through tears to friends and family alike. We were all so proud of her. From there she embarked on a lifelong career of caring for others. She was there to help when babies were being born in labor and delivery; she was there to help in the emergency room; she was there to help the developmentally disabled and finally she was there to help at the end giving the last 15 years in the service of hospice care. Along side her official duties, as a nursing professional, Margo's unique and open personality and willingness to share, led to a large and diverse group of friends that surrounded her until the very end. The love she gave to others was only second to the love she received by all who crossed her path, or who's path she crossed into as she was known to do. In her spare time, Margo was known for a passion for shopping by all those who knew her, often returning exhausted at the end of marathon shopping trips where she insisted it was the last store, it would only be five more minutes, when we all knew we were in for the long haul. She will be missed dearly. She is survived by her children: Wende Masciantoni Sutton, Scott Masciantoni and Jason Masciantoni; her grandchildren Zachary Broderson, Dale Sutton, Olivia Masciantoni and Preston Masciantoni; her siblings Phoebe Grannick Nissim, Neil Grannick and Howard Grannick. A private service was held at her home for some family and friends but there will also be a memorial service in New Jersey where many of her family and friends still reside. Wanting to help until the end, Margo donated her body and her organs to science to help others continue to learn and heal. In lieu of flowers, please consider sending a donation to Hospice Foundation of America, hopsicefoundation.org.
