Susan H. Sargent Obituary
Susan H. Sargent died peacefully at home in Townshend, VT with her husband Chris Robison by her side on July 22, 2017. She fought a two year battle with cancer with courage, grace and humor.

Susan was born September 1, 1953 in Wilmington, DE to Epes W. Sargent and Gloria M. Sargent (Jones). She grew up in Southold, NY (class of 1971) where she continued to have many friends and loved returning to South Harbor beach whenever she could.

Although she left us too soon, her adventurous spirit helped her live a full and interesting life. At a young age she hitchhiked to Woodstock. She tackled many occupations; joining the circus, a truck stop waitress, working at UMass library, a flagger on road construction (her favorite) and many jobs in the Antiques business. After moving from MA to VT she met Chris and together they worked at a variety of antique shops and The Townshend Auction gallery before they eventually opened their own place, Twitchell House Antiques, where they worked, lived and kept each other clean and sober for past 15 years. She loved creating metal sculpture, collected stray animals, saw art in everything, had an amazing knack for interior design and had a fearless love of the ocean.

She leaves behind her heart-broken family; husband; Chris Robison and her step-daughter Sarah Sargent (Robison), sisters; Alison Sargent and Sarah Leonard (Sargent), a daughter; Heather Clark (Korzenowski), her beloved grandson; Harrison Korzenowski and granddaughter; Lexi Wapner, nieces, nephews, and all the many friends she made along the way.

There will be a memorial service held for Susan at a future date.

In lieu of flowers please donate to The Elephant Sanctuary, Tennessee, www.elephants.com.
