Susan Hettrick Griglun passed away December 7, 2019 in the company of her family at home in West Falmouth.
Susan, or Sue, was born in 1941, grew up in Wellesley MA, and received her B.S. in Physical Education from Boston University. A well-liked teacher and colleague, she taught physical education and coached various sports for 26 years in Westport, CT Public Schools.
Sue retired to West Falmouth in 1999 and dedicated her time to the community and many activities at the West Falmouth Library as well as the Falmouth Garden Club, Friends of Falmouth Dogs, and the Read to Me! Program in the Falmouth elementary schools.
Sue had many interests and passions, the greatest among them were her family and her dog. Rain or shine, she could be seen walking Chappy Beach or Bourne Farm with her friends and their dogs. She also loved cooking, boating, shell fishing, knitting, reading and gardening. A teacher and a lifelong learner, she especially enjoyed teaching her twin granddaughters about the natural world and soaking up their knowledge of the ever-changing world of computers, cellphones and app’s.
She is survived by James, her husband and best friend of 53 years; her daughter, Paige Griglun of Boston; her granddaughters, Genevieve and Eliza Youngman of Boston; her sister, Pamela Selden of Washington DC, as well as several nieces and nephews and their children.
Sue’s family will celebrate her life in the spring, when flowers are in bloom again.
