Susan Gretchen Vomacka of Plymouth, MA, passed away peacefully after a stoic battle with cancer on
November 9, 2019, at the age of 65.

She leaves behind her son, Kyle V. Decker; her daughter, Caleigh A. Decker; her mother, Janice Vomacka;
her brothers Jim Vomacka (Boni Edwards) and Chris Vomacka (Julie Vomacka); and her sister Martha
Vomacka Geuss (Detlev Geuss). She is preceded in death by her father, George Vomacka.

Born in Utica, NY, Susan attended Shenendehowa High School, Clifton Park, NY (c.1972) and the

singing with the MIT/Harvard’s Women’s Chorale.

Susan faced the disease with the utmost courage and determination, and throughout, remained
eternally optimistic and hopeful until the very end. Her family is forever grateful to her dear friends,
colleagues and medical team who supported Susan these past 12 months and the caring staff at the Pat

Oh were all of the things that a God created in a excellent human being. Kind, caring, quiet - yet feisty, hard working, genuine with a beautiful spirit. I am internally sad but I know that you are in a better place. With all the love and respect in the world, rest in peace.

I am not alone when I say I am still feeling numb. Susan, you will be dearly missed. I loved your smile, your laugh, your kind spirit, and your sincere friendship. May you walk into the loving arms of our Lord and watch over those who adored you.
