Susan Maley

Susan Maley, 76, of Chesterbrook, Pennsylvania passed away on November 23, 2022 after a truly courageous battle with cancer.

She was born on June 9th 1946 in Philadelphia, PA to parents Agnes and Biagio Masciantonio along with her beloved, late brother Robert. She was married to loving husband and father James Maley who died in 1988. The couple initially lived in Northeast Philadelphia where they provided a wonderful childhood for her only son, Jamison Maley. Her son believes her to be the greatest mother anyone could have asked for. After her husband died, Susan moved out to the Main Line, alternately living in Villanova, Wayne, and finally Chesterbrook. In these places, she maintained her life-long love of animals, music, and learning. Loyalty, integrity, morality, creativity…these are just a few of the words that describe this remarkable woman.
