Susan Lynn Boby
September 27, 2012
Susan Lynn Boby, 45, of Dingmans Ferry, PA lay to rest with the Lord with her daughter by her side on September 27, 2012 at Orange Regional Medical Center, Middletown, NY after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
She was born December 6, 1966 in Pompton Plains, NJ to George Radcliffe Sr. and Janice MacDougall. She attended High Point High School, Sussex, NJ before transferring to Delaware Valley High School, Milford, PA in her senior year. She received her Paralegal Education from Pennsylvania State University and served as a Paralegal to Weinstein, Schneider, Kannebacker, & Lakuta Law Office in Milford, PA for 11 years before changing careers to become an Executive Assistant at Orange Regional Medical Center. She was the “doll” of the hospital for 14 years, according to her coworkers.
Susan wed the love of her life, Rick Boby, on June 20, 1992, in Pike County, PA and enjoyed spending time hiking, biking, kayaking, and traveling. She was known to make delicious canned food items after spending hours picking strawberries, blueberries, apples, and tomatoes. Her dry sense of humor, compassion, willingness to help others, and bright smile made it easy to be loved by those who were blessed to have met her. Some of her friends describe her as “an amazing woman in character and strength,” someone who “planted seeds of patience, understanding, compassion, and thoughtfulness” and a “legacy of love.”
She is survived by her husband Rick Boby; two daughters, Katrina Emerick and her fiancé Ryan Roa, and Madison Boby all of Dingmans Ferry, PA; parents, Janice MacDougall and husband, Bill MacDougall of Augusta, NJ and George Radcliffe Sr. and wife, Liz Radcliffe; two siblings Becky Gratcofsky and her spouse, Eddie Gratcofsky, and George Radcliffe Jr. and his spouse, Maggie Radcliffe all of Dingmans Ferry, PA and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her brothers Steven and Brian Radcliffe.

“Believe in yourself--in the power you have to control your own life, day by day, Believe in the strength that you have deep inside, and your faith will help show you the way. Believe in tomorrow and what it will bring--Let a hopeful heart carry you through, For the things will work out if you trust and believe there’s no limit to what you can do.” -Emily Matthews
