She spent many wonderful summers at Aloha Camp in Vermont as a camper and counselor. Sue cherished her role as mother to her daughters, Margaret Carabillo and Katharine Winter. She loved them dearly and her son-in-law Vincent Carabillo. Her quiet support was always present. She was blessed with many friends to whom she was grateful for making a difference in her life. Sue lived her life by the Golden Rule. She was a thoughtful, kind and generous woman to everyone she met with a smile. She devoted herself to a variety of volunteer positions including over 15 years at the Visitors Information Center at the Old State House which she enjoyed immensely. Sue savored life: Goodspeed, the Hartford Symphony, the Wadsworth, Tanglewood, Syracuse Football, UConn Huskies, Cape Cod, Maine and Connecticut Horticultural Society trips. Sue was predeceased by her daughter Margaret and is survived by her daughter Katharine and son-in-law Vincent. The family wishes to thank the caregivers and staff at the McAuley for their devotion and loving care.
