Susan G. ‘Sue’ Ponte
LOWELL Susan G. ‘Sue’ (Texeira) Ponte, 48, a lifelong Lowell resident, died unexpectedly, October 30, 2008. She was the wife of John Ponte.
A daughter of the late John and the late Helen M. (Wyman) Texeira, she was born May 3, 1960, in Lowell, and was educated in the local schools.
