Suzy Subercaseaux McClary born March 12, 1958, survived by her husband Danny, son Michael, brothers, John, Tony, Jimmy and Karen, and sister Terry and Rick. Suzy was born in Smithtown General Hospital along with all her siblings and we enjoyed our residence for the majority of years growing up in the Village of the Branch in Hillside Terrace off route 111 in Smithtown, attending St. Patrick’s and her high school years at Smithtown West. We enjoyed those days as Suzy explored acting with a most memorable performance in “A Midsummers Night Dream” on the old campus of St. Anthony’s. There were countless summers in upstate New York in which we ventured on many a mountain climbing expedition with the challenges of Mt. Marcy, Whiteface, and who could forget Whitecross that ended in, well the cross getting knocked down by no fault of the eager name carvers on sight, but more do to the tattered and torn symbol that had seen better days but could always be viewed clearly from our lakefront home we rented. Those summer days were some of our finest family memories that also included campfire sing-alongs, the rec hall shenanigans, countless talent shows and of course the delicious candy store.
The summers faded and Suzy traveled a bit before settling back on Long Island, residing on Candy Lane (No connection to previously mentioned upstate descriptor, but maybe,) and proudly worked in the engineering department at Fairchild Republic. She loved buzzing around in her little Pontiac Fiero sports car, going to the beach, and cruising the island. She eventually settled down, married Paco and gave birth to Michael, the name’s sake to our dear brother who passed away in a car crash in his early 20’s. They enjoyed many years in their condo in Birchwood at Bretton Woods which was also the location of our new family home. We immensely enjoyed the amenities that came with condo living that included a golf course, swimming pools, and an awesome recreational center.
The years went by in a flash, Fairchild Republic closed, and Suzy transitioned to a full-time house cleaning business that thrived via her dedication, determination, and hard work ethic which she no doubt inherited from Tony and Isabella, her loving and adoring parents.
Suzy did well for herself, but the separation from her husband left a gaping whole in her heart for many years until a gentleman we often refer to as “St. Danny” came into the picture and showered her with ever-loving care and devotion. We always enjoy telling the story of how Suzy and Danny met that to this day we all swore was a pure measure of divine intervention. Dad had just passed away and Suzy invited Danny over for dinner as they lived in the same apartment complex. The evening went well, but the turning point in the night, and eventually in their lives occurred when Danny asked Suzy, “Why do you have pictures of Coach Armata on your wall?” Suzy replied with an emphatic, “Because that’s my dad!” It turns out Tony/Dad was Danny’s much respected and well-loved PE teacher at C.I. H.S. and the rest was history.
Please join us in a collective, wholehearted loving hug to our dear sister, mother, daughter, wife, aunt, and one of the gentlest, caring, sincere person you could ever meet. We love you dearly Suzy and will always remember your good natured, caring disposition and most infectious laugh and sense of humor. Rest in peace sweet Suzy and fly safely in heaven.
