Loving Wife, Mother, and Grandmother
Susan B. Locascio, 80, departed this life on January 18, 2019 with her loving family by her side.
Born on January 13, 1939 in St. Paul, Minn. to James and Margaret Barber, Sue resided most of her life in Westfield, NJ.
After obtaining her B.A. degree from the University of Minnesota, she became a civilian employee of the U.S. Dept. of Defense. She spent 2 years in Mainz, Germany teaching 4th grade children of the U.S. Army Soldiers, and it is there that she met her future husband 1/Lt. Mike Locascio.
Upon returning to the U.S., she married and subsequently obtained her Masters Degree in Library Science from Seton Hall University.
Sue spent the balance of a great teaching career as the Librarian at Tamaques School in Westfield, NJ. From which she retired in 2007, which gave her more time to engage in her favorite pastime, enjoying and interacting with her four adoring grandchildren.
She will be sorely missed by her entire family.
