Susan Mary Martillotta, 70, of Cotuit, MA, formerly of Sandwich and Boston, passed away peacefully at Royal Nursing Center in Falmouth on June 6, 2020. She was the daughter of the late Sam and Mary Martillotta of Albion, NY.
Born in Albion, NY, Susan was graduated from Albion High School in 1967. She was a 1969 graduate of Green Mountain Junior College, Poultney, VT and a 1971 graduate of American International College, Springfield, MA. Upon graduation, Susan went on to teach English in the Springfield, MA school system, after which she entered a career in advertising sales in Boston. Upon moving to the Cape, she continued in the sales of advertising space and most recently, of gourmet meats. Susan was confirmed as a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Albion, NY. Susan was most proud of being a mother.
Susan is survived by her two children, Samantha Martillotta of Cotuit, Daniel Martillotta Cohen and wife, Colleen, of West Barnstable; her brother, Samuel Martillotta and his wife, Paula, of Chardon, OH; her grandson, Robert Marrs, III; several cousins including Thomas Mahoney and his wife, Jennifer, of Canandaigua, NY and Marnie Mahoney of Farmington, NY; and nieces Alexandra and Audrey Martillotta and nephews Sammy and John Martillotta and John’s wife, Olivia.
Susan was blessed by the love of her many dear friends. Susan, or Suki as many her close friends called her, had a great sense of humor and was filled with both passion and compassion. She could carry on a conversation like few can and loved talking with anyone who was willing to talk back.
