In memory of
Susan K. Wisehart
Susan K. (Sue) Wisehart, 68, of Waterville, died Saturday, September 22nd, unexpectedly of natural causes while vacationing in France, with her loving husband, Howard Duchacek, and dear friends by her side.   She will be remembered for her selfless generosity, ability to know just what to do to comfort others, and spirited laugh that would fill the room.   Sue was born in Evanston, Illinois, and spent most of her youth in Montrose, New York. After high school, she pursued her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at the University of Vermont, where she made countless lifelong friends, and met her future husband, Howard. Sue and Howard were married in 1975, and spent much of their 20s living in Seattle and enjoying the region’s hiking and camping. Sue began her nursing career working nights in a children’s hospital, providing loving care, always grounded in empathy, which would become the cornerstone of her profession throughout her life.   In 1981, Sue and Howard moved to Waterville, Vermont, where they have spent the last 36 years. Sue didn’t waste any time looking for opportunities to give back to the Lamoille County community. She volunteered countless hours with the public school system and caring for the Waterville town gardens. Sue also served on the Board of Directors for both the Waterville Historical Society and the Lamoille Restorative Center.     Before retiring in 2016, Sue worked as an RN at Lamoille Home Health and Hospice for 25 years.   In her free time, Sue loved gardening, relaxing at the beach, laughing - especially at herself - and when her children were young, cheering too loudly at their sporting events.   In addition to her husband, Howard, and many adoring friends, Sue is survived by her children, Tyler Duchacek and Allison Duchacek. She was predeceased by her parents, W. Rennolds and Carol Lawrence Wisehart, and her brother, William (Bill) Wisehart Jr.   Visiting hours will be held on Friday, November 2 nd , from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the Faith Funeral Home, (165 Brooklyn St., Morrisville 05661.) A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 3rd at 10:30am at the Lamoille Union High School auditorium, (736 VT Route 15, Hyde Park, VT 05655). A reception will follow at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall (129 VFW Drive, Hyde Park, VT 05655).   In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Lamoille Restorative Center (221 Main St, Hyde Park VT 05655, (802) 888 5871, http://www.lrcvt.org ) where Sue served as a volunteer for over 30 years and as Chair of the Board of Directors for more than ten. Lamoille Restorative Center improves public safety and the well-being of the Lamoille Valley by fostering the dignity and resilience of individuals and families through restorative justice, relationship building and empowering self-sufficiency. Sue approached this work with compassion, courage, sensitivity and care.   Online condolences may be made by visiting faithfh.net.
