Susan Passero

Susan Ann (Miller) Passero, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, passed away peacefully on the morning of Sunday, July 23, 2023 after a lengthy illness. Susan lived in Stratford at the time of her passing, but was nearly a lifelong resident of Stamford, CT. Susan was born on March 10, 1948, to the late Arthur and Dorothy (Parker) Miller and was one of four siblings. She was 75 years old at the time of her passing.

Susan and her husband were High School sweethearts and she waited patiently for him while he served in Vietnam. The early years of their marriage were spent in Delaware and she often reminisced about that time as it is where she started her family, with the birth of her first daughter. Her friends will tell you Susan was very loyal and she maintained a number lifelong friendships that will grieve her as family. Susan loved children and animals and spent much of her career working for pediatricians, and later veterinarians. She often brought home animals that needed extra help and many families are grateful to her for her love and care. She loved to read and shared that passion with her daughter, who grew up to work in publishing. Susan loved being a Wife and Mother but nothing lit up her face more that her grandchildren whom she loved above all else.

Susan is survived by her devoted husband of 54 years, Frank Passero; daughter Kimberley Monahan and husband Brian; her precious grandchildren, Padraig and Finnigan; sisters Lynn Miller and Patricia Grimaldi; and many nieces, nephews, and dear friends. In addition to her parents, Susan is preceded in death by a beloved infant daughter, Shannon Leigh, and by her brother Robert (Bobby) Miller.

The funeral services for Susan will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Susan’s memory may be made to T.A.I.L.S of Westport or Paralyzed Veterans of America.
