Susan K. DiCamillo

GUILDERLAND — Susan K. DiCamillo “returned to the Lord on Sunday, Dec. 27, 2020,” her family wrote in a tribute. She was 73.

She grew up in Rotterdam and attended Mohonasen High School and spent most of her life close to family in the Capital District. She was a resident of Guilderland and an active member of St. Boniface Episcopal Church for many years, including serving many terms as Warden of the Vestry, ushering, assisting with coffee hour, and supporting numerous enhancement projects and fundraisers.

“Sue was also an extremely dedicated mother and devoted her life to raising and inspiring her children,” her family wrote. “She was curious, creative, and fond of collecting things that brought her joy, traits she passed on to her sons, Jim and Pat.

“She demonstrated her creativity through a variety of forms, including creative writing, painting ceramics, making jewelry, needlework, gardening, and crafting highly detailed Christmas ornaments. She was also a talented baker and was well known for her oatmeal raisin cookies, and Danish. Her curiosity was best seen through her desire to try new projects and a deep love of reading all manner of books.

“Sue was well loved and well respected by all who knew her and will be missed greatly. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff of Ellis Hospital for the expert care during difficult times.”
