Obituary

Suzanne (Golembieski) LePage, 74, of East Hampton passed away Tuesday, November 1 after a brief battle with cancer. She lived her life like a well loved novel with great characters, beautiful settings, and a few plot twists. Chapter one was mostly spent reading and playing at a friend’s farm in the Westfield section of Middletown. She was adored by her great Uncle Mack who called her Suzu, and she made her first lifelong friend in her cousin Dianne Fairchild, who she talked to nearly every day. She spent every summer in Old Saybrook with her parents, grandparents, and many extended family members. She attended Woodrow Wilson High School, where she met David Smigel, her first husband. His parents, Joe and Lee Smigel, adored her. Chapter two was spent in East Hampton working at IGA. Townies will remember Sue in the courtesy booth. During these years Sue met her life long friend Mickey Zoldak, who was her confidant, caretaker, and champion at the end. After raising her children and divorcing her husband, chapter three was spent with her second husband Gerry LePage. They spent most of their time antiquing, dining out, and enjoying martinis. Sue honed her decorating skills during these years. The beginning of chapter three was challenging for Sue, as she was widowed and had to start fresh, but she was once again working with the public at Liberty Bank, getting involved in community organizations, and making new friends. Some of you may have seen her working the hot dog wagon for the East Hampton Lions Club, getting her hands dirty with the Belltown Garden Club, or making her friends laugh at her art and book clubs. She thoroughly enjoyed spending time with all of her friends these last several years, these last pages of her novel. Her best times were spent in her home decorating and entertaining, especially with her fireside friends. She was well known for her Halloween parties, lavish Christmas Eve celebrations, bountiful floral gardens, and adoration of her fur babies. She still loved reading, and nothing gave her more pleasure than a book in one hand, a cup of tea in the other, and a cat in her lap. She is predeceased by her parents, Peg and John Golembieski, her husband Gerry LePage, and many cats; her favorites were Boo, Larry, Luna, and Mookie. She leaves behind her Uncle Bill (Joan) Fitzpatrick, her brother John (Suzanne) Golembieski, her brother Greg Golembieski, and her sister Joyce (Tom) Denman, nephew David (Christina) Koscuk, and niece Laura Koscuk. She will be missed by her children Bill Smigel and his cat-loving wife Martha, Peggy Smigel and her cat-loving fiancé Pat Griffing, as well as her grandchildren Matthew Smigel and his cat-loving wife Kaitlin, cat-lover Leo Harbec, and dog-lover Lance Harbec.
