Susan Missouri (Breidenbach) Wood passed away early Wednesday, October 17, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was born June 15, 1963, and lovingly adopted by George and Cathryn "Becky" Breidenbach in Prince's Bay, Staten Island, N.Y. She attended Tottenville High School before moving to Vermont to attend Saint Michael's College. She worked at the University of Vermont Medical Center for 32 years in CSR and as a mental health tech. She was gifted with a brilliant and candid sense of humor and a deep empathy for others. She loved her family, friends and dogs — and especially when the three would coincide, like every summer on Burton Island in St. Albans, Vt. She is predeceased by her parents, George and Becky. Left to cherish her memory are her devoted husband of 27 years, Malcolm Wood; her two sons, Nick and Neil Wood; Hayley Wood; Anna Levine; brothers Charles and Michael Breidenbach; and two big dogs, Roy and Belle.

We would like to thank all the incredible people who compassionately cared for Sue throughout her illness. Special thanks to all the great people of the hematology/oncology department of UVM Medical Center, the nurses of the VNA hospice organization of Franklin County, and the Respite House in Colchester, Vt. And thanks to all our coworkers and friends who helped us and comforted us along the way. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Sue's name to the Respite House or the VNA.
