Susan K. VanNostrand

Susan K. VanNostrand, 71, of Gloversville, was reunited with her husband at heaven’s gate on November 20, 2019. She had been in failing health for several months and a final health crisis proved too much for her. Family meant everything to her and they were by her side until the very end.

Susan was born in Columbus, Ohio on December 11, 1947, to Melvin and Betty Dusenbury. Her family eventually moved to New York, where she attended local schools and worked in area factories. She married her best friend, Lloyd G. VanNostrand Sr. on May 8, 1965. Together they raised five children and shared 52 years of marriage and memories until his passing on March 30, 2018.

Survivors include her children, James (Bobbi) VanNostrand, Lori (Ronald) Holland, Gordon VanNostrand (Taryn O’Brien), Scott (Trudy) VanNostrand, Lloyd (Toby) VanNostrand Jr.; her sisters, Lana Knapp, Karen Savoie, Mari Beth Livingston and Mary Alice Vincill; 16 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

In addition to her husband she was predeceased by her parents; her brothers, Melvin Dusenbury and John T. Dusenbury Sr.; her granddaughter, Samantha-Jo Colson; and her great-grandson Anthony Alexander Lloyd VanNostrand.

Per Susan’s wishes, there will be no service. The family will be having a celebration of life in the spring. Arrangements are under the direction and care of the Northville Funeral Home. Condolences may be made to the family online at www.northvillefuneralservice.com.
