July 21st, 2014

Suzanne A. (Wyrostek) Siegel, age 48, of Wilmington, formerly of Wilbraham, passed away unexpectedly on July 19, 2014.

Suzanne was born on August 8, 1965, in Springfield, MA; she was the cherished daughter of John and Jean (Bojan) Wyrostek. Suzanne was raised and educated in Wilbraham and was a graduate of Minnechaug High School. Suzanne went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Horticulture from the University of New Hampshire and her Master’s Degree in Education from Lesley University in Boston. Suzanne was also in the process of finishing a second Master’s Degree from AIC.

At the time of her death, Suzanne was employed as a second grade teacher at the Memorial School in Burlington, MA. Suzanne loved her students dearly, she enjoyed spending time with them, teaching them new and exciting subjects, and watching them grow throughout the school year; she especially adored seeing her former students return to visit her. Suzanne was a well-respected educator, co-worker, and dear friend to many of her fellow teachers.

In her spare time, Suzanne loved spending time working outside in her yard, she loved gardening, going on family camping trips, listening to music, reading, going to Cape Cod and walking on the beach, or just hanging out with family and friends and enjoying conversation. Suzanne’s most favorite thing to do was to spend time with her beloved daughter Josselyn, whether it was shopping, going out for lunch or dinner, taking in a movie, or just being there for each other, they were inseparable.

Suzanne will be fondly remembered for her kindness to others and for her unconditional love and devotion to her family and friends. Suzanne was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all.

Siegel, devoted mother of Josselyn Siegel of Wilmington, cherished daughter of John & Jean (Bojan) Wyrostek of Harwich, dear sister of Michael & Karen Wyrostek of East Granby, CT, loving aunt of Matt Wyrostek, daughter-in-law of Bette Siegel of Boston.

    We were all shocked and devastated to hear of Suzie’s passing. She was a wonderful person, mom,wife and teacher and will be greatly missed.

    John, Jean, Mike, David and Josselyn,
    I am so saddened to hear of the sudden loss of Suzy, please accept my sincere and heart felt condolences. She was an amazing woman, when we ran into each other on FB that was such a great feeling, it was so nice being able to connect to my childhood and reminisce about days gone by. She always seemed to bring a smile to my face with her posts and you could tell she was so proud of her family.
    May God give you…
    For every storm, a rainbow,
    For every tear, a smile,
    For every care, a promise,
    And a blessing in each trial.
    For every problem life sends,
    A faithful friend to share,
    For every sigh, a sweet song,
    And an answer for each prayer.

    We are sad beyond words. Love and prayers to the family. Luther and Alice Beal

    Mrs. Siegel was my teacher when I was at Memorial. I am now in high school. She was the first teacher that I felt really understood me and actually liked me. All the years I have been in school there were only 2 of those teachers. I will always remember her and the wonderful time in her class. I wish I could have said goodbye.
