Susan Faith Taranto, 67, died peacefully on Feb. 11, 2013, at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter. Susan lived courageously and vibrantly through her 4 1/2 year struggle with breast cancer. She leaves a saddened but grateful family of 3 sisters and 2 brothers, 13 nieces and nephews, 7 grand-nieces and nephews, as well as many wonderful friends and her "sweet cat" Lucy. Her love of the ocean brought her to Wilmington, NC, where life friendships and her gardens truly blossomed for her. A memorial service will be held at a later date in March.
A gathering of celebration and remembrance will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, March 23, 2013 at Glen Meade Village Club House/Office at 1518 Village Drive, Wilmington.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Lower Cape Fear Hospice.
