Susan Ann (LaCasse) Bristol
Born March 23, 1950 in Pittsfield, MA passed away on December 18, 2017, due to complications from cancer, a battle she fought with strength and stubbornness until the very end.
She was born to Erwin and Marilyn (Phillips) LaCasse, her devoted parents throughout. She was raised in and lived in Lanesborough for most of her life. Susan went to Lanesborough schools and graduated from Mt. Greylock Regional High School in 1968. She worked hard to support her family and served on the town School Committee for many years.
She was proudest of her role as a mother and grandmother to the joys of her life - her two daughters and her four grandchildren. Watching them grow for as long as humanly possible was most important to her. She was the oldest of eight siblings, all of whom she loved. She was known by friends and family as fun, outspoken and loyal. She made good friends everywhere she went in life and she enjoyed her later years in Florida. Her spunk will be missed.
She is survived by her parents, Erwin and Marilyn LaCasse of Brewster, MA, her daughter Colleen Dobbert of North Adams, MA, her daughter and son in law Erika Bristol and Michael Danahy of Brunswick, ME, her grandchildren Rebecca Richards and her husband Ryan of North Adams, Daniel Dobbert, III of North Adams, and William and Greta Danahy, her seven siblings, Keith LaCasse, Dennis LaCasse, Gary LaCasse, Diane Newton, Paul LaCasse, Brian LaCasse, and Marcia Field and their spouses, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
