- Susan Remington
In memory of Susan Sherman Remington, who passed peacefully at her home in Cabot, Vt., on November 6, 2018. She was a mother to three, a mentor to many and a generous friend to all.
Suzy was born in Auburn, N.Y., on May 29, 1944. Growing up in upstate New York and then Florida, Suzy was an honor student, a National Girl Scout and a musician. She was an artist, educator and dedicated mother. She had a lifelong love for learning and achieved her master's degree from Goddard College. She was always a tireless advocate for children, animals and the underdog. She was involved in children’s art and education for more than 40 years, both here and in the Virgin Islands. Her early years as a Girl Scout sparked her love for living close to the land. That eventually led her to Vermont in the 1960s and to a rural lifestyle with an emphasis on living in harmony with Mother Nature. Suzy’s greatest gift was recognizing good in others and encouraging their light to shine. She loved traveling and was a gypsy at heart.
She leaves behind four younger siblings: Miranda, Lucinda, Sara and Russell; three children, Aubrey, Torey and Lucy; four grandchildren, Isaiah, Liliana, Tyree and Zion; and many, many friends who loved her. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Montpelier on November 17, noon to 2 p.m. The church service will be followed by a gathering at her house in Cabot. Suzy’s warmth, love and acceptance will be missed by us all.
