Florida just after World War II. They had been married for 45 years when he passed away in 1991. A beautiful woman with a strong spirit and an easy

laugh; Susie was a dedicated mother who always loved and cared for her family and was a wonderful Italian cook. In the late 1960’s, she and her husband Mike were the proprietors of Terri’s corner grocery store in Dunkirk. She retired from Fredonia State University in 1989. She will be missed and remembered dearly by her sons John, Michael and Daniel Bonasera; her daughter Teresa (Bonasera) Battisto and her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She lived a long and wonderfully imperfect life. Per Susie’s request, a private family service will be held. Arrangements by David J. Dengler, Larson-Timko Funeral Home, Fredonia,
