Suzanne L. “Suzie” Woodyatt

Suzanne L. Woodyatt, “Suzie”, Scranton, passed away peacefully Saturday night after a hard fought battle with cancer.

Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Vincent Paul Brust, Sr and Ruth Saunders Brust.  Suzie graduated from Cathedral High School and Marywood University.  Prior to her retirement she was employed by Allied Services for over 20 years, as an activities coordinator in the Recreational Therapy Department. She also taught aerobics and line dancing, for her brother Vince Brust, at various centers in the area. 

Over the years Suzie had many hobbies she was passionate about.  She enjoyed traveling, hiking, baking and her weekly movie nights with her nephew Joe Liberatore, Jr.  Suzie had a love for music, especially the piano, which she passed down to her children.  Spending time with her granddaughters brought her great joy and she was looking forward to the birth of her first grandson.

Surviving are her companion Ruben Barreiro of Dunmore, daughter Heather Woodyatt and fiancé David Harvey of Scranton;  Mark Woodyatt and companion Lisa Gregory of Dunmore; sister Elaine Legate of Scranton;  brothers Vincent Brust Jr of Olyphant and James Brust of Scranton; granddaughters Victoria and Violet Harvey,  nieces and nephews.

    I was so sorry to read of Suzie’s passing. I volunteered at Allied with the harp ensemble when she worked there. She brought sunshine and cheer to the clients and others with whom she worked. May you all know God’s comfort in your loss.

    I first met Susie when she was teaching aerobics in the basement of the
    The old ICC on Taylor Ave. We continued our friendship as we often gathered
