Penguin Rep Theatre is saddened to announce the passing of Susan (Sue) Brancato, its co-founder and long-time business manager, and mother of artistic director Joe Brancato.

Says executive director Andrew M. Horn, "Sue ran the box office, kept the books, housed and fed actors, was the kindly and helpful voice on the phone, and so much more. She dedicated over 30 years to ensuring that professional theatre artists had a home in the Lower Hudson Valley before retiring, at the age of 92, in 2011." (She also was a prolific master of oil painting).

Sue passed away peacefully on June 3, 2018 and is survived by her children Susan (Dr. Robert) Siragusa of Panama City, FL, Joseph (Andrew Horn) Brancato of Rockland County, & Dr. Gareth (Linda) Brancato of East Williston, NY, her grandchildren Robb, Dana & Julie Siragusa, Sienna & Devin Brancato, & her great grandchildren Byron, Athena, Giselle & Julian Siragusa.

The family will receive friends & family on Wednesday, June 6 th from 4 - 9 PM at TJ McGowan Sons Funeral Home, 133 Broadway, Haverstraw, N.Y. 10927.

A graveside service will be on Thursday, June 7th at 11:30 AM at St. Anthony's Cemetery in Nanuet.

Please, no flowers. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
