Susan Sellew Bradley


After a long illness, Mrs. Susan Sellew Bradley has gone to eternal rest. The loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away March 7, 2021. She adored her family and put them above all else.

Sue was born Sept. 3, 1947. Growing up in Connecticut and spending her summers on Cape Cod made her appreciate the Eastern Shore. It was the same, the bay on one side and the ocean on the other, only the climate was a bit milder. She came to love Cape Charles and all it had to offer.

Sue was a ray of sunshine in so many people’s lives. She worked at the Boardwalk in Cape Charles for almost all the time she lived here. She loved meeting new people and surprised many of them because she looked much younger than she actually was. She also loved the many other merchants in town that she had contact with. Selling/merchandising was her true passion.

She lived much of her life in Cromwell, Conn., but found some of her greatest happiness, in her retirement, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, with her husband. There was nowhere on the Eastern Shore that Sue didn’t like, everything from the Jack Spot at Sunset Beach to the Chincoteague ponies. The wineries, the museums, the eateries, the ice cream places, the flower growers, the beaches, the sunsets, she loved them all.

She will be deeply missed by her husband, Seymour Mersick Bradley III, of Cape Charles. Her loss is also felt by her daughters, Tricia Rand Levesque and her husband, Michael, of Cromwell, Conn., Carrie Rand Anastasiades and her husband, William, of Wethersfield, Conn.; her grandchildren, Katelyn, Alexander, Emma, Niko, James, and Quinn; as well as her great-grandchildren, Genevieve, Vincent, and Jonathan; and her husband’s daughter, Jennifer Campo, of Milford, N.H.

She was predeceased by her father, Thomas H. Sellew Jr., and her mother, Marion W. Sellew.

The family will hold a private service in her memory.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Susan’s memory be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.
