Susan Elizabeth Russo (Wood), a loving mother and granny, passed away on May 18, 2023 at the age of 64. Susan was born to her parents Richard and Gail Wood in Woburn, MA.

Susan’s greatest joy was being a mother and a grandmother. She took a tremendous amount of pride in her two children, Steven and Emily, and her six grandchildren. When her kids were younger, the family would travel all over New England, spending time camping in New Hampshire, and at the beach in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. When she became a grandmother, she experienced so much joy from her grandchildren. They loved to go over to “Granny’s house” almost every weekend they visited each other. She loved spending time with them enjoying each other’s company and the kids playing in her backyard. She loved to sit down and do puzzles and read books to the kids.
In her free time, Susan loved being outdoors. She loved watching the birds that frequented her yard. She loved animals and was a kind hearted person toward all creatures. Susan had a record player that always had some of her favorite classic rock music playing. She had a great sense of humor and always made people laugh with her witty comments. She was a strong woman with a strong personality and very loving.

She was the loving Granny to Breyanna, Tyrique, Isaiah, Mercy, Jahmal, and Jahzara Caze. She was the dear former wife of Paul Russo of Bridgton, ME.
