Susan was an accomplished artist with a deep love of painting in different mediums. She had an ability to be creative on so many levels. She loved preparing for her art shows on Martha’s Vineyard where so many supportive members of her community would buy her art and commission paintings. This is where she really thrived and felt a strong sense of purpose.
Nothing was impossible in her mind and she conveyed this message to her family and friends, she embodied this sentiment while facing many challenges in her later years with her supportive husband by her side.
Although Susan suffered a stroke 20 years ago, she continued to handle life with such grace and positivity. She lost the use of her right hand but continued painting with her left hand and was featured in an art show at the Spalding Rehabilitation Center. Nothing was impossible in her mind and she conveyed this message to her family and friends, she embodied this sentiment while facing many challenges in her later years with her supportive husband by her side.
She maintained her sense of humor and strong willpower in order to continue to do the things she loved most and truly inspired other’s along the way.
Susan is survived by loving husband John, her sons John Hobby, Jr. and his wife Christine of Franklin, Roger W. Hobby and his wife Kristen of Medfield and her daughter Jill Hobby Napior and her husband Jason of West Tisbury.
