Susan (Buggea) DeQuattro left this world of natural causes on June 13, 2020. She was 91. For the past year she was lovingly cared for by her family and by the compassionate staff at Huntington Common in Kennebunk, Maine.
Susan had been a daily communicant at St. Augustine’s Parish in Andover, MA, where she served as a Eucharistic Minister and lector for many years. She was a Third Order Franciscan for 28 years. She loved the Holy Sacrament of the Mass and lived her life around it. She was pre-deceased by her husband of many years, Joseph DeQuattro, who died in 2005.
Susan was dedicated to serving people. She was equally fulfilled by volunteering in the community and by supporting her extensive family. She was a devoted mother to 7, grandmother to 17, and great grandmother to 13. She was particularly devoted to the spiritual and physical well-being of her grandson, Sam, with whom she spent many happy hours. Her grandchildren loved her funny stories and willingness to be a part of their lives. Susan took special delight in her 13 great grandchildren, and appreciated such good fortune. She was happiest when she was with this enormous family at the many family events that occurred in a life lived as long as hers.
She also leaves behind two beloved sisters: Jenny Podbliewski of Lawrence, MA, and Nancy Boucher, of North Andover, MA.
Susan’s funeral mass will be held at St. Augustine’s Church in Andover, MA, at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, June 16, 2020. Burial for family only is at Immaculate Conception Cemetery, Lawrence, MA immediately following. In lieu of flowers, Susan has requested donations be made to the Autism Fund at autism.org/donate. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Burke-Magliozzi Funeral Home of Andover. www.burkemagliozzi.com.
