Sue McAuliffe Obituary, Death – It has filled me with a great deal of sorrow to learn that Sue McAuliffe has died away today. Sue was such a nice lady who was very dedicated to the training of both her dogs and other people’s dogs. She attended many of my courses and was a regular participant. The funeral arrangements for Sue will be made public by her daughter in a short time. Susan devoted her life to serving others by working as a nurse, a live-in caregiver, and serving in the role of “second mom” to a great number of people.
She made sure that anyone who was struggling had a place to stay, a hot meal, and a shoulder to lean on. The presence of Susan’s love was most palpable during mealtimes. Her goulash was acclaimed, her spaghetti and meatballs were famous, and her mastery of her grandmother’s donut recipe left the children in awe. Her goulash was also famous. First and foremost, she made sure that each meal brought her loved ones together.
The love that Susan had for her family and friends was almost equaled by the love that she had for the Adirondacks and the manner of life there. Despite the fact that she was brought up in Highland Mills, New York, she opted to bring up her children in Elizabethtown, which is located in the middle of the Adirondacks. There, she was able to share with them the warmth and happiness that she felt during the many childhood summers that she spent in the mountains, on Lake Champlain, or at Lincoln Pond.
Her razor-sharp wit, irreverent sense of humor, and the capacity to love fiercely will be greatly missed, but she will continue to be remembered fondly in the hearts of all those who were fortunate enough to call her friend. At the Deer’s Head Inn in Elizabethtown, New York, on October 22, 2022, between the hours of noon and three o’clock in the afternoon, there will be a celebration of life in her honor. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be sent in her honor to The Adirondack Council or any other organization that is committed to protecting the natural environment of the Adirondacks, which she cherished so deeply.
