Text size

Susan “Sue” (Noury) Letourneau, 61, of Plaistow, N.H. passed away suddenly on Wednesday, August 2, 2017.
Now before reading on, please listen to this in your mind with a funny accent. Southern, British, anything will do. (Sue would have thought that was hilarious)
She was born and raised in Newburyport on January 17, 1956. Newburyport was a city she loved. Sue was the fourth daughter born to the late Francis and Marjorie Noury. Sue spent many years working on the reunion committee for Newburyport High School to keep the good times going.
Sue was married to Dick, the love of her life for 41 amazing years. The love between Sue and Dick was one for the ages. In their marriage, love and laughter have always triumphed over disaster and with Sue, medical disasters often followed her.
Despite having more medical issues than any human should have to endure, Sue loved life and loved having fun. During the many surgeries and procedures Sue had to have, you could often hear her laughing with the nurses, cracking jokes or perfecting her Miss America wave as she was wheeled off for the next procedure.
Sue was hilarious and had a presence about her that made you love her. She cared about people in a way most of us will never understand, but to have been cared for like that is something none of us will forget.
She is survived by her husband, Richard, favorite oldest child Megan Ashworth and husband, Chad, favorite middle child Rachel Guida and husband, Mark and her favorite youngest child, Caitlyn Medugno and husband, J.R. Sue was blessed to have seven grandchildren, Tyler Ashworth, Jason Ashworth, Madelyn Ashworth, Dexter Guida, Abigail Guida, Hope Medugno and Riley Medugno. Sue also leaves behind her best friend of 50 years, Paula Hatfield, her three sisters, Carol Emerson, Linda Moschetto and Diane Rohner, father-in-law, Richard Letourneau Sr., sister-in-law, Beth Letourneau, Louise Gemmell, and Denise Letourneau, nieces, Yvonne Fitzgerald, Debbie Teague and Alyssa Rohner; nephews, Tim Hartnett, Billy Rogers, John Rogers, Eli Rohner, Paul Fitzgerald, Canaan Letourneau and Skylar Letourneau as well as her adopted daughter, Andrea Oliver and many great-nieces, nephews and friends
