Gansevoort, NY – Susan Ann (Adams) Vitro passed away Monday, November 3, 2014 after a valiant battle with ovarian cancer.
Born on June 21, 1957 in Mt. Kisco, NY, she was the daughter of the late Lawton and Eleanor Adams. Sue was a life-long horse woman whose knowledge was endless. During her career she managed several locations, most recently Stone Bridge Farm. Sue was well respected throughout the thoroughbred industry.
Sue was passionate about her dogs, especially her beloved “Hattie”! Fiercely competitive, over the past eight years, she attained championships in Agility, Herding, Tracking, Rally, and Obedience….all in spite of her chemotherapy.
Sue touched so many lives and accomplished so very much. Those who knew her will truly miss her energy, her intelligence, her advice, and her disarming wit!
Susan was the beloved wife of Gary; cherished mother of Vincent, Marc, Gary Jr., David and daughter-in-law Amy; loving grandma to Alex, Maxx, Katy and Ryder; fond sister of Lee, Lawton, Vincent and Bonnie. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother Kenny.
