Everett’s first female firefighter Susan Pipitone loved her profession. She worked as a pump operator on Engine 1.
According to Everett Fire Chief Tony Carli, she was a pleasure to work with. He said he was fortunate to have met her.
Piptone died last week from cancer. She was 56.
She joined the Everett Fire Department 18 years ago.
She loved playing music, painting, spending time with her dog and her spouse, Darlene Braley.
We join everyone in the Everett Fire Department in mourning her loss.
