Born in Peckville, daughter of the late Enrico and Sophie Petrosky Angradi, she worked as a presser in her early years and the majority of her life as a CNA for St. Joseph's Center, where she took pride in taking care of mentally handicapped children and adults. She was a member of Christ the King Parish, St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Archbald.
Susan was a loving wife, a strong mother, a heartwarming grandmother and honorable sister. She was also very artistic. She enjoyed drawing, painting, writing, a variety of crafts and making her house truly a home. She touched the hearts of anyone she met and filled every room with cheer. Her eyes lit up every time she saw her grandchildren; they were her pride and joy. She will be deeply missed and never forgotten.
