BongiovanniSFORESTVILLE:  Suzann L. Bongiovanni, 54, of Creek Road, Forestville, died Tuesday, November 26th, 2019 in the Town of Hanover.  She was born in Dunkirk, on September 20, 1965, the daughter of Mary (Glowniak) Duliba, of Forestville and the late William Duliba, Jr.

Everybody called her “Suzy”.  Anybody who came in contact with her, felt the genuine care and compassion she had for all people.  She made you feel comfortable and loved.  Suzy had the biggest heart and always wanted to help anyway she could.  Her love for people was the reason why she was in the health care field for many years.  That was Suzy, always taking care of those who needed the help and attention.  Her compassion and sincerity was only a few of her many amazing attributes.  There were so many more, too many to mention.  Always having a kind word for anybody she had met.  There are many people she had touched with her words and actions.  Absolutely, one of the very best individuals who walked with us here on earth.  Knowing Suzy, she is already taking care of those in heaven.  That is the reason why she is there now.  God called his best angel home.  From heaven she will still take care of those who need her.  That is just Suzy, beautiful inside and out as always.

    My Condolence goes out to Family and friends of Suzann L. Duliba/Bongiovanni. She has touched many with her caring loving and kind soul throught out Chaut. County and where ever she went on trips. Her personality was outstanding to make people laugh and forget their problems when she was around. She was one Classmate of 1984 and a Best friend throughout toughest times of the 1980’s. As she has been known by many as Suzann / Suzy /Suzie or Sue, she will be forever missed by me and hundreds if not thousands of her family, friends and the clients she had provided a service. So sorry for everyone Loss, because she was and still is valuable friend that was loved by so many people that will be remembered for so many years to come. She will be dearly Missed! So so Sorry for her passing may God take care of her in heaven as I am sure my mother, Edna Grace Tingue will be right there with Suzy. Again Sorry for “ALL the people Suzy left behind that have been so devastated and the Word “Broken” Doesn’t touch the feelings that I or other people are feeling from this NEWS! This is “My Way” of saying good bye.
