She graduated from Cohoes High School in 1967 and then worked at St. Mary's Hospital in Troy as a switchboard operator. She then moved to San Diego, Calif. to support and encourage her husband who was serving in the U.S. Navy at Miramar Naval Base. Following her husband's service, they then returned home to Cohoes to start a family. She retired from the Cohoes School District after 26 years as a special education teacher's aide at Abram Lansing School. Susan was an avid reader and gardener, she loved working outdoors from sun up to sun set. She was so very proud of her yard and home. Susan was also a founding member of the Cohoes High Band Booster Club. She loved traveling with the band and the many friends she made. She loved hosting family and friends making everyone feel welcome. She loved her trips to Maine and Cape Cod with her family and especially watching her grandchildren play tirelessly at the beach. She is the beloved wife of Theodore Marcil Jr. of Cohoes; the devoted mother of Jennifer Marcil, Teddy Marcil and Michael Marcil (Raychel); cherished grandmother of Julia and Landon Marcil and her granddog Bella, all of Cohoes; and sister-in-law of Janel Marcil LeBeau (Bill) and loved aunt to her many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her parents and eleven siblings. She was a devoted wife of 50 years, an adoring, loving and supporting mother and the greatest "Grammy" to her grandchildren. She brought so much joy and laughter to so many and was quite the prankster.
