WEST CORNWALL — Susan Costello, 69, died peacefully at home on Aug. 19, 2021. She was the loving wife of the late Roland Costello.
Born in Philadelphia, Pa., she graduated with a degree in nursing from the Medical College of Pennsylvania. Soon afterward, she moved to Pittsfield, Mass., and opened a popular coffee shop.
Later, she became the caretaker for a mansion that was also the location of a popular summer camp, where she hosted and fed a large corps of happy campers.
She met her beloved husband, Roland, when she moved to West Cornwall, where she opened a video rental store and met most everyone in her new adopted hometown.
She also became an adept house painter with her husband.
She always kept her nursing license and returned to that field while working in a nearby nursing home in later years.
However, she always claimed her proudest accomplishment was raising her children, Damien and Paris, who survive her along with her granddaughter, Willa; brothers Roy and Jeffrey; and sister Deborah.
A funeral service was held Aug. 24 at the Kenny Funeral Home in Sharon.
