Susan Mapes Scali
September 23, 1948-September 3, 2017
Circleville, NY
Susan Mapes Scali passed away peacefully at home on September 3, 2017, surrounded by her loving family. She was 68 years old and was a lifetime resident of the area.
The daughter of the late Edwin Brown Mapes and Mildred DeWinter Mapes, she was born in Goshen on September 23, 1948.
Sue graduated from Middletown High School in 1966. She married Vincent J. Scali on June 5, 1971 in Middletown. She worked as a legal secetary to the late William M. Williams of Bull, Morreale, Ingrassia, Ritter and Williams. It was soon after the birth of her second child that Sue opened a home-based certified daycare center. Throughout the past 23 years of operation, Sue had the pleasure of mentoring and caring for over 100 children.
Sue is survived by her devoted husband Vincent “Jim” Scali; her son, Christopher J. Scali and his wife Rachel; daughter, Jamie L. Scali-Decker and her husband Shawn and daughter Carrie A. Scali and her partner Mark Christensen. She is also survived by her beloved grandchildren; Kaitlyn, Cameryn, Alana, Alicia, Ethan and Brayden; brother Thaddeus Mapes and his wife Julia; sister, Sally Kohut and her husband James and brother Thomas Nosworthy and his wife Cheri. She also leaves behind several dear family and friends.
In addition to her parents, Sue was predeased by her brother, Edwin “Curly” Mapes.
She was a loving wife, proud mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, niece, cousin and loyal friend. She lived selflessly and fully and will be forever missed.
One of Sue’s favorite poems was “the Dash” written by Linda Ellis, because it focuses on that little line between the dates, and the importance of the life you lived. After cremation, interment of ashes will take place in Circleville Cemetery.
All are invited to A Celebration of Sue’s life at 11 am on Saturday, September 23, 2017 in the fellowship hall at Circleville Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 890 Goshen Turnpike, Circleville, NY 10919.
To continue to show her love of children, Sue’s family requests memorial contributions in her name to be made to St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
Arrangements are under the direction of Applebee-McPhillips Funeral Home, Inc.
