Susan A. (Gabel) Montanaro, 64, of Cranston, passed away peacefully on Monday, November 29. She was the beloved wife of Joseph A. Montanaro for 41 years.

Susan was an employee of Travelers Insurance Co. for 13 years, then was an employee of the State of R.I. Workers’ Compensation Fraud Unit, Dept. of Labor and Training, for 25 years.

After retirement, Susan enjoyed her hobbies. Susan was a fantastic baker and phenomenal cook. She particularly enjoyed sharing cuisine ideas with her son-in-law, while chatting about the latest reality and home design shows with her daughter.

Susan’s greatest love was her family. She created a loving home with her best friend and husband, Joseph, and enjoyed creating special holiday traditions and family vacations.

Her family misses her more than words can express.
