WATERVLIET - Susan Riley Fitzpatrick, age 65, lost a valiant battle with Alzheimer’s Disease on Sunday, September 8, 2019.
A lifelong resident of Watervliet, she was the daughter of the late William and Mary Janet (Rogers) Riley. She married her high school sweetheart William (Fitzie) Fitzpatrick, with whom she shared 46 years of marriage.
Sue is a graduate of St. Brigid’s Catholic School, Watervliet High School class of ‘71, HVCC, and Sage Colleges. She retired in May 2011 from the NYS Bar Association as an executive assistant after 29 years. Sue loved to vacation with her family as often as possible in Cape Cod and Wilmington NC.
Survivors in addition to her husband include daughter Sara Egan and her husband Scott, daughter Kate Parvin and her husband Ed, grandchildren Halee and Logan Egan and Julia Parvin, and brother Mike Riley and his wife Michele, and brother Jeff Riley, along with her aunt Marge Abbot and her aunt Jeanne Keis, and many cousins and close friends.
We appreciate the love, support and prayers of family and friends over the past several years. The family would also like to thank her many caregivers that allowed her to remain at home during her illness and the staff at Albany Medical Center on the 6th floor (Vascular Surgery) of building C.
Private services will be held for close family and friends.
