Coes, Susan Dowling* - Stamford  
Susan Dowling Coes, 73 YARMOUTH - Susan Dowling Coes, 73, died peacefully at her home in Yarmouth on Sunday, May 2, 2016, after a long and cour- ageous battle with cancer. Susan was a successful healthcare and public relations executive, a loving mother and grandmother, and a devoted and loyal friend to the many, many people who loved her dearly throughout her life. Susan was born in New York City on Feb. 7, 1943, to John Benjamin Dowling and Sylvia Klarsfeld Dowling. She grew up in Stamford, Conn., and attended Low-Heywood School and Briarcliff College. After college, she married and moved to West Simsbury, Conn., where she lived for more than 30 years. Her career was as interesting as it was successful. Her first job as a young wife was as a field hockey coach at Renbrook School in West Hartford, Conn., where, more than a decade later, her own children would attend. She later worked in a variety of senior roles at a wide range of companies and organizations, including Connecticut Public Tel- evision, Newington Children's Hospital, Easter Seals, and for then-Governor of Connecticut, Lowell P. Weicker Jr. In West Simsbury, Susan helped to bring A Better Chance, a program for academically-gifted inner city children, to the town. She loved politics and current affairs, and could be counted on for a fierce debate no matter the subject. She was also a gourmet chef whose dinner parties were the stuff of legend. Above all, she enjoyed people. Though successful professionally, it was Susan's undying spirit, her perseverance, loyalty, kindness, lifelong friendships, and her wonderful sense of humor that she will be remembered for. After retirement, Susan pursued the two passions which would come to define her, a love of books, and a deep joy of knitting. In Yarmouth, she worked for many years at the local bookstore, Royal River Books. She volunteered at a knitting store and was rarely seen without her knitting bag and whatever sweater she was working on at the time. On birthdays and at Christmas, her eight grandchildren could each expect to receive a large shipment of books along with a hat, sweater, or scarf that "Grandma Susie" had knit. Susan is survived by her beloved brother, John Benjamin Dowling Jr., of Norwalk, Conn.; and her three children and eight grandchildren: Rufus Putnam Coes III, his wife, Amy, and their children, Piper and Persis of Wyndmoor, Pa.; her son John Benjamin Coes, his wife, Shannon, and their children, Charles, Theodore, Oscar, and Esmé of Wellesley, Mass.; and her daughter, Cornelia Coes Edwards and her children, Augustus and Poppy of Yarmouth. A memorial service will take place in Yarmouth on Saturday, June 4, at 1 p.m. at the Hillside Street Meeting House, 25 Hillside St., with a reception to follow at Camp Hammond, 275 Main St. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Literacy Volunteers of Greater Portland 181 Brackett Street Portland, ME 04101
