Susan Michele (Senft) "Sue" Crimmins
Little Falls, New York
Mrs. Susan Michele (Senft) "Sue" Crimmins, 65, of Little Falls, passed away peacefully, joining her beloved husband Chuck Crimmins in heaven, on Saturday evening, June 26, 2021 at the St. Johnsville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, following an extended illness.
Sue was born in Albany, on May 3, 1956, daughter of the late Reinhold and Elizabeth Senft. She received her education in Little Falls schools, graduating with the "Class of 1973." Sue was united in marriage with Charles J. "Chuck" Crimmins on November 30th, 1974 in Little Falls; a loving, inseparable and memorable union of 46 years, until Chuck's passing on May 6, 2021. The couple supported each other in every step of their journey together. Sue's last employment was with the Herkimer County 911 Center where she proudly held the position of communications supervisor. She retired in 2015 after 16 years of dedicated service to Herkimer County first responders. Prior to the 911 center, she was a Sgt. at the Herkimer County Correctional Facility.
Sue enjoyed to knit and crochet. She also loved going to garage sales and the treasured times spent at the family camp at Pine Lake and of course her many long car rides with Chuck. Sue absolutely cherished the times spent with her family, especially her adored grandchildren. She was a tireless provider for her family. Her hard work ethic was instilled in her children because she wanted them to be strong, independent, and appreciative of what they accomplished in life. Raising her girls was everything to Sue and there was nothing more important. If you were lucky enough to have Sue as your friend, you had a protector and confidante for life. She will be deeply missed by all those she knew.
Survivors include Sue's cherished girls, Erica and her children, Jake, Natalie and Colton of Little Falls, Sarah Harrer and her husband Joe and their children, Dylan, Chase and Lyla of Little Falls, and Laura and her children, Noah, Logan and Mia also of Little Falls; adored great grandchildren, Luke, Raelynn and Liliana; a sister, Barbie Jonas of AZ; a sister in law, Judith Metz of Ilion; many dear friends including her best friend of over 50 years, Kathy Haberek of Little Falls, her dear friends, Lori DeBois and the McKeon family along with numerous nieces, nephews and her cousin, Marilyn Pierce of Little Falls. She was preceded in death by her parents, Reinhold and Elizabeth Senft.
