In memory of
Susan E. Whitney, 86 Worcester - Susan Evans Whitney, 86, died peacefully on Monday, March 13, 2017 at St. Vincent Hospital, Worcester. Raised in Westfield, NJ, Susan was the daughter of Willamay (Lindsay) and Stewart Evans and later lived in Tappan NY, West Chester, PA and Atlanta before moving to Princeton and then Worcester over 20 years ago. She is survived by her husband of over 64 years, Robert Whitney of Worcester; her four children, Steven of Warwick, RI, Joan of Silver Spring, MD, Bruce of Putney, VT and Ken of Lancaster, PA; and her three grandchildren, Evan, Emnet and Madison. Susan obtained a Bachelors Degree in Sociology from Oberlin College. It was on campus that she met her future husband, Robert, over a game of checkers, which she lost, much to her chagrin.

She served as the President of the UU Church in West Chester, PA, President of the League of Women Voters of Georgia, and Treasurer of the League of Women Voters of Worcester.
