RUSSO, Maria Jesusa “Susan”

November 21, 1958 – Baliuag, Bulacan,Phillipines
April 1, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Susan beloved wife of Michael Russo of Calgary, AB, passed away on April 1, 2018 at the age of 59 years.

Susan was a kind, happy, grateful and beautiful woman. She built, ran and owned a camera store with her husband for the last 20 plus years. She loved to spend time gardening, and grow vegetables and fruits. She had the biggest tomatoes and tastiest zucchinis around. Her garden is full of beautiful flowers and plants every year. She enjoyed the outdoors, going on hikes and exploring the mountains with her husband and children. Susan had an infectious laugh and could find joy in the hardest places. She always looked at the positive in any situation.

With building the photo store with her husband and raising 2 beautiful children, Susan measured her success with the amount of love and happiness she found within her friends and family. No matter who you were, she always gave the best advice. Susan was always there to help her family and was always the one making sure everyone was being taken care of (even the dogs!). She always preached that happiness is found within yourself and to always be grateful for what you have. She taught everyone the importance of family and to appreciate all of your family and friends.

Susan is survived by her loving husband Michael Russo; her daughter and son-in-law Samantha and Drew McCormack; her son Kristopher Russo; her siblings Jun & Ellison Cruz, Vivian & Angus Davis, Arturo & Laura Cruz; numerous nieces and nephews and her dear friends Amy & Joey Silot, Matthew Cruz Zenon, Torin, & Blythe Davis, Madel & Christopher De Leon.

A private family service was held. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Susan Russo, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Deerfoot South, 12281 – 40th STREET S.E.. Telephone: 403-203-0525.
