Susan L. (Noz) Krikorian, 52, passed away on May 28, 2014 after a prolonged illness. She was a loving mother, wife of 28 years, dear friend to many and an active contributor to her community. Susan grew up in Lexington and was a 23-year resident of Acton. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College and later worked as a college textbook production editor for several years. Susan had a passion for history, literature, art, culture and nature and was well known for her uncanny ability to recall facts and context about virtually any topic. Susan loved gardening and spent many summers nurturing her gardens that will continue to bloom for many years to come. She enjoyed vacationing at the beach on Cape Cod, cross-country skiing in New Hampshire, and visiting historic and cultural sites. Susan was an avid volunteer at Acton-Boxborough schools, Acton PIP, and many other community programs. Susan loved life and never hesitated to participate in activities even during her illness. Most of all, Susan loved being a mother and being part of her children's lives. Her enthusiasm for life was an inspiration and will live on in the people she touched. Susan leaves behind her husband George Jr. and children George III and Sonya of Acton, her mother Eleanor Noz of Lexington, and sister Tracey Mackersie, her husband David and children Alyssa and Stuart of Littleton. Family and friends are invited to a memorial gathering at Acton Funeral Home, 470 Massachusetts Avenue (Rt 111) Acton, on Saturday, June 7, 2014 from 1pm to 5pm.

I learned just today of Sue's passing. It is six years since that time, and I feel sorrow now (in 2020) even as I learn about her untimely passing. I was a sophomore student at Mount Holyoke College, and Sue was a junior. I remember her very well. She was friendly, smiling, conversational, and she would tease me in a gentle way. She gave me a nickname, "Anastasia." My given name is Stacy. I recall being impressed by her major (American Studies) and that she had a boyfriend. Eventually, this was the man she married, too. I would listen to her ease with conversation and try to model her. It is heartwarming to read comments from her friends, and to learn about her children, her work, and her volunteer activities. I will always fondly remember her as someone who eased my passage into adulthood by her welcoming presence. May her family know how many hearts Sue touched.

To the Noz and Krikorian families:

I am so sorry for your loss. Susan was an LHS classmate of mine and my husband's.
And George was, as well.
She was a nice person, smart, always with a smile. Gone way too soon.

I last saw Sue at a Red Cross blood donation site. She was working as a volunteer there. I had also known her as a scout leader. Our community has lost a cheerful presence, good citizen and willing volunteer. Our sympathies to Sue's family.

With heartfelt condolences to Susan's entire family. Susan's sister, Tracey, is an active member of the Littleton Country Gardeners, so it seems they are alike in their love of gardening. May her family find peace in the memories they have of Susan. With love from everyone on the Littleton Country Gardeners

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. Sue and I were roommates during my freshman year of college (her sophomore year). I'll never forget that letter she wrote to me before school started. I was a nervous country girl, frightened about going to school so far from home. But her warm letter helped ease my fears. When I met her at Ham Hall, I was relieved and happy to discover that she would be a real friend. I was even lucky enough to visit her home on several occasions and meet her parents and sister. When I lived in France one summer, she and her good friend Laurel came to visit. In fact, Sue is the main reason I work as an editor. I remember having no clue what to do after college. When I learned she was working in publishing, I thought that might be a very good fit for me—and it has been for many years. I have very fond memories of Sue and am sorry to have lost touch. My deep condolences to George and their family.

I am so sorry to hear of Sue's passing. We were friends at Mount Holyoke College but lost touch afterwards. I re-connected with her at our 25th reunion in 2008 and we spent hours together reminiscing. She was so proud of her children and I remember her telling me of her son's acceptance into the University of Vermont and her daughter's high school activities. George - she was so proud of the life that the two of you built together. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
