Susan V. Furness

Passed on Sunday, 15 January 2023

Susan Violet Furness of Newington, CT, passed away peacefully on January 15, 2023. Susan was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, who will be missed by many.  Sue is survived by her husband Peter Furness, daughter Kristin Otis Medvecky (Trevor) of Portland, son Justin Otis of Manchester, step-son Scott Furness (Susana) of Florida, grandchildren Jaxon and Erik Medvecky and Liam Furness, siblings Sally Noonan (John) and Richard Frohock (Beth), several nieces, nephew and cousins.

She was born to the late Doris and Chester Frohock. She graduated from Newington High School in 1965 and married soon after. She happily raised her children and was very involved in their lives and community by volunteering for many years with Brownies, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Sunday School, and in Newington's school system. Susan then worked for the CT Conference Office of the United Church of Christ, retiring after 29 years as Registrar who kept tally of all the churches and helped countless churches search for ministry staff.

Lincolnville, Maine carried a special place in Sue's heart with its mountains, lakes, shoreline and history. She loved vacationing there her entire life, often surrounded by her family at the beach and dinner table.

The family would like to extend our greatest appreciation to the staff at Portland Care and Rehab who cared for Sue during her last 4 years.

A Remembrance of Life Service will be held Saturday, January 21, 2023, 11:00 am, at Church of Christ Congregational, 1075 Main St., Newington, CT.  The service will also be live streamed.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation on Susan's behalf to the Alzheimer's Associationact.alz.org/goto/SueFurness
