Summit Lake, Argyle

Susan J. Harrington, 72, of Summit Lake, passed away on Monday Aug. 19, 2019 as the result of a motor
vehicle accident.

Born on Feb. 5, 1947 in Winchester, MA, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Effie (Wilson) Harrington.

A graduate of Ithaca College, Sue was previously employed by John Hancock Information Services in Boston,
MA. Leaving Boston in 1988 she settled in at Summit Lake in Argyle, NY. Locally Sue worked for TV Data
and Travelers Insurance before starting her dream job as a baker. As co-owner of Effie’s Baked Goods, Sue
enjoyed baking cookies along with breads, rolls, and eventually bagels in the lakeside bakery. Serving on the
Saratoga Farmers Market board Sue took on the position of Registrar. After spending countless early mornings
in the bakery, Sue retired from professional baking in 2011.

Sue loved everything about the outdoors; all the seasonal sports but especially skiing, hiking, ice skating,
swimming, and golfing. A birdwatcher, Sue kept the birds around her house very well fed throughout the year.
As an avid Boston sports fan, Sue could always be found cheering on the Red Sox or Patriots. Needless to say
her wardrobe consisted of a lot of red, white, and blue.

Sue will be lovingly remembered and missed dearly by her wife Joyce Paul and their beloved cats, Ziva and
Clarence along with her siblings, Gene Harrington and Judy Ratta-Harrington of Londonderry, NH; Bruce and
Arlene (Pietkewicz) Harrington of Warrensburg, NY; and Nanci Harrington and Fred Cox of Sutton, MA. Also
left to cherish her memory are many nieces and nephews - Meg Harrington, Laurie Harrington (Allan Zajac),
Kevin Harrington (Larissa Bassarab), Jan Harrington (Josh Davis), Jonathan (Rebecca) Cox, Melissa (Charlie)
Bay, Matthew (Wendy) Cox, Patrick (Kaccee) Cox, Daniel (Juliana) Cox and fourteen grand nieces and
nephews. Besides her parents, Sue was also predeceased by her beloved nephew, Adam Cox and many aunts
and uncles.

Friends may call from 2 to 4 on Friday, Aug. 23, at the Argyle Fire. Dept, Route 40, Argyle.
Services will follow the calling hours at 4pm at the Fire Dept.

In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to GrasslandBirdTrust, P.O. Box 82, Ft Edward, NY

I am so sorry to hear about Sue's passing. We worked together at Travelers years ago. She was always a kind and cheerful person. I remember the time she came to my house for a grilled swordfish dinner, it was an enjoyable evening getting to know her better. Joyce, I am so sorry for the loss of your soulmate. Take Care.
