Susan M. Narkewicz-Reynolds

HOOSICK FALLS, NY Susan Narkewicz, a woman of immense faith in Jesus Christ, passed away early Wednesday morning, October 21, 2015 by her husband's side. She was the daughter of Joseph and Madeline Narkewicz of Shelburne Falls, MA, one of nine children. She graduated from Williams College with a B.A. in Political Science, was awarded a full scholarship to Cambridge University in England and earned an LLM in International Law, then entered Georgetown Law in Washington, D.C. and completed her J.D. She worked for Patton, Boggs, and Blow before moving back to Hoosick Falls with her husband, Frank A. Reynolds Jr. She was employed as a member of the legal team at the N.Y.S. Public Service Commission and later worked for various capitol district law firms including the law firm of Dan Persing. She eventually set up a small office up at the Prayer and Healing Center in Albany, NY operated by Dr. Bob Paeglow. They serviced those in need with medical and psychiatric services and with the addition of Susan's legal services. These might seem impressive accomplishments, but should never overshadow the true thrust of her work. Within days of becoming a lawyer, Susan could be found in the Public Housing units of D.C. helping those in need. She and her husband took in numerous children offering a safe environment and educational opportunities while in D.C. When she and Frank later returned to Hoosick Falls her work continued. Susan and Frank adopted five children from H.I.S. Home for Children in Haiti, operated by Hal and Chris Nungester, and assisted in the adoption of many other children before and after the devastating earthquake of 2010. She was a member of the Green Mountain Christian Center in Bennington, VT and served as board member at H.I.S. Home in Haiti. She is survived by her mother, Madeline Burbee-Narkewicz; her brothers, Michael, David, Brian, and Jeff, and sisters, Mary, Anne, Terry, and Penny along with her five adopted children, Barbarah, Roodjury, John, Erntz, and Jacob. Any contributions or donations can be offered to the educational fund for her four sons at Green Mountain Christian Center (GMCC) on Main Street, Bennington, Vermont. SERVICES: The memorial service will be at 1p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29 at GMCC located at 440 Main Street, Bennington, VT 05201.
