Ursula "Sue" Nania Obituary

Ursula “Sue” Nania (Keenan), 92, died peacefully on October 23, 2023. Longtime resident of Milton and formerly of South Boston, Sue worked for five decades as bookkeeper at St. Agatha’s church where she also sang in the choir and managed the church’s weekly Bingo. Sue was proud to be among very few female engineering graduates of Lowell Technical Institute in the 1950s earning a degree in Textile Engineering. 

Sue was a compassionate, curious and very intelligent woman; she loved birds and animals, and she was a passionate supporter of organizations that helped people in need and that worked to save wildlife and the environment. Sue had a wonderful sense of style, and sewed many of her own clothes when she was younger. She also was an incredible embroiderer and created an amazing array of counted cross stitch art. Sue was a very avid reader of contemporary novels, mysteries, and historical fiction, and going to Barnes & Noble was one of her favorite pastimes and she was also an avid Boston Bruins fan.   With her abundant love and kindness, she always made people feel valued and heard.  

Sue was the beloved wife of the late Robert J. Nania. and was the loving mother to Elizabeth Nania and wife Sandy Bailey of Roslindale, MA and Ursula Marshall and husband Richard of Paramus, NJ. Sue was a proud grandmother of all her grandchildren: Sarah (Lee) Schweizer, Abby (Brad) Tierney and Anthony Marshall, and her six great grandchildren; Shawn, Landon, Mark, Mackenzie, Logan, and Everly. Sue was also the loving cousin to Diane Keenan of Peabody, MA.
