Susan Vacco Bucci Crouse
Susan Vacco Bucci Crouse, 60, joined her heavenly family on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at Barnes Jewish Hospital. Susan was born September 5, 1954 in Springfield, the daughter of Norman and Alvena Langston Vacco. Susan was a graduate of Springfield High School and St. John’s School of Nursing.
She worked as an LPN at St. John’s Hospital for over fourteen years and later was a professional care giver to many.
As a young child it was obvious that her calling was to care for others; the lovable and those who were deemed unlovable. She had a kind heart and made everyone feel loved. She was a former member of West Side Christian Church. Her greatest joys in life were her family, especially her granddaughters. She enjoyed family, baking and crafting.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Joyce Vacco and many other family members.
Left to cherish her memories are her husband, John Crouse; former husband, John Bucci; daughter, Nichole Bucci (Chris Reid); son, Tony Bucci (Merissa Lasko); two granddaughters, Emma and Kayloni Bucci. She will be greatly missed by her sisters, who loved her dearly, Mary Ann Brammer, Jeanne Perkinton and Karen Ilsley; many nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends she loved as family and her furry friend, Lilac.
