Susan attended Reed as an Eliot Scholar in 1984–85 and enrolled as a matriculated student in 1985, but quit after the spring semester in 1988. After earning her master’s degree from West Connecticut State University, she worked as a reporter for the New Milford Times, News-Times, and the Spectrum for more than 20 years.She loved literature and the arts, belonged to a poetry group, and wrote a book, The Presence of Loss, which was a collection of short stories and poetry. She was also an advocate for the mental health community. Her mother, Helen Tuz, brother, Michael, and sister, Patricia Monaco, survive Susan.
