The line-of-duty death funeral for Glen Cove EMS EMT Susan Angela Giovanniello was held at Saint Rocco Roman Catholic Church in Glen Cove. Family, friends, and officials gathered for the funeral mass for the 19-year-old volunteer EMT who died suddenly after returning from an April 2 call. She was transported to the hospital, but did not recover and passed away on April 3.
Crews from Long Island fire departments and EMS agencies lined the street in front of the church to pay their respects, along with Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman, Glen Cove Mayor Pam Panzenback, Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Nassau Police Department Commissioner Patrick Ryder. A burial followed the service at Holy Rood Cemetery in Westbury.
Susan was the beloved daughter of Lou and Julie; loving sister of Jessica and Michael; special granddaughter of Anna Giovanniello and Vincenzo Viselli; dear niece of Lena, Emilio, Joanne, Bruno, Antonette and Umberto. She was also survived by many loving cousins and friends
