Suzanne Elizabeth (Solomon) Tarantino, 83, a longtime resident of Framingham, passed away on April 8, 2022.
Born in Leicester, England, she came to the United States in 1955 with her mother and sister. Suzy was remembered for her great sense of adventure, her drive to keep on learning new things for work and pleasure, her relaxed demeanor, her sense of humor which was very contagious among family and friends, her kindness to family and the hospital staff who worked with her and the patients she served as a registered nurse for many years. She made many friends while working at the Lemuel Shattuck and Medfield state hospital.
Suzanne had a great passion for reading for both an escape to fantasy as well as a better understanding about challenges faced by others in life. Sue passed on her wisdom to many about her perspective on life and her insight that events no matter how bad, can lead to other opportunities in life. We will always carry her memory in our hearts.
Sue is survived by her loving husband Salvatore, in their marriage of 60 years, her daughter Margaret, son Stephen, son-in-law James Borton, daughter-in-law Lisa Tarantino, sister Alison V. Sullivan, sister-in-law Patricia Tarantino, brother-in-law Frank Tarantino, four grandchildren, four nieces, two nephews and extended family members in and outside the U.S., whom she loved dearly.
Family and friends will honor and remember Sue’s life by gathering for visiting hours in the McCarthy, McKinney & Lawler Funeral Home, 11 Lincoln St. Framingham on Wednesday, April 13th, from 3-7PM. Interment will be private.
