Langolf , 75, of Utica, NY, passed away to rest in eternal peace with our heavenly Father on Friday, December 12, 2014, at the Katherine Luther Residential Health Care and Rehabilitation Center, after an extended illness, with her loving family by her side. Suzanne was born in Utica on August 5, 1939, the daughter of John and Loretta (Mack) Sinnott. She graduated from Utica Free Academy and was briefly employed by the telephone company as a switchboard operator. On August 4, 1962, she married the love of her life, Richard D.

Suzanne was a lifelong resident of Utica, a full-time homemaker and congregant of Trinity Lutheran Church, where she served as a Sunday School teacher, usher and member of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League. Later in life, Suzanne worked as Manager of the arts and crafts department at Wal-Mart. Besides caring for dozens of house plants, nearly all her leisure time was committed to crocheting afghans, dressmaking, handmade quilting, furniture restoration, ceramics, and many other craft-related endeavors. It was Suzanne's steadfast and selfless commitment to her family that characterized her life; she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend and will be deeply missed. Surviving besides her husband, Richard, are two daughters and sons-in-law, Lauri (Rev. John) Drosendahl, of Goldsboro, NC, and Lisa (Peter) Magnant, of Franklin, VT; her beloved son, David Langolf, of Brooklyn, NY; twelve precious grandchildren, Rachel, Sarah, Rebekah, Josiah, Matthew, Samuel, Leah, Seth, James and Andrew Drosendahl and Mikaela and Benjamin Magnant; four sisters and brothers-in-law, Sister John Lorretta, CSJ, Helen Roberts, Delores (Robert) Oliver and Veronica (Bill Dukes) Przybyla; brother, James Sinnott; sisters-in-law, Marian Sinnott and Carol Sinnott; and many nieces and nephews.
