Obituary for Susan Marie Belanger

Susan Marie Belanger, daughter of Alberta and Ronald Belanger, passed away peacefully on May 15, 2008 in Bristol Hospital after a long and courageous battle with emphysema. She was 48 years young. Born in Willimantic on October 4, 1959, she recently moved to Bristol, CT. She is survived by her father, Ronald, her sisters Cathy Chasse and her husband, Dennis of Bristol and Debra Belanger, in whose devoted care she lived for many years. She also leaves behind a nephew, Christopher Belanger whom she adored. Also surviving are her aunts Ann Mott and Christine Legace and their families. She leaves to mourn her passing a special cousin, Linda Fraser and friend, Kim Young. She was predeceased by her mother, Alberta and sister, Lisa Belanger. She was also predeceased by her aunt Blanche Glidden who held a special place in her heart as well as many other aunts and uncles. Susan attended Windham High School and graduated from Quinebaug Valley Community Technical College with a certificate in Phlebotomy. She was a member of Phi Theta Kappa and was recognized in the National Dean’s list year 1999-2000 for her academic achievements. Susan was employed by the D.M.R. for 25 years, lending gentle and compassionate care for those less fortunate. She most notably enjoyed helping to raise her nephew Christopher, taking a very active part in his life and will miss most of all, being present for the milestones of his future. Susan’s family would like to extend their thanks to the many doctors, nurses and other caregivers who cared for her over the years at Windham Hospital, Bristol Hospital, VNA of Willimantic, and Bristol Hospital Home Care and Hospice. All are invited to attend a Memorial Mass for both Susan and her sister, Lisa who passed away on December 2, 2006, on Wednesday, May 28, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. in St. Joseph Church in Willimantic followed by burial for both in St. Joseph Cemetery in Windham. Susan exemplified her compassion for those less fortunate through her generous contributions to organizations caring for underprivileged children. In lieu of flowers, she would be humbled by donations in her name to one of the following charities: The Oprah Angel Network at www.oprahsangelnetwork.org or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at donors@stjude.org. She truly believed that if you sponsored a child, you saved a life. We, her surviving family, are comforted by the thought that she now breathes easily in the arms of her mother and sister and many other loved ones who passed before her.
