She was predeceased by her mother, Phyllis Patterson Tuttle and father-in-law, Ansel LaPointe. The family would like to express their thanks to the Spectrum ALS Clinic, the Mercy ALS Clinic, Faith Hospice, Helpers of Holland Homes, and the staff of Trillium Woods for their care and support throughout their journey with ALS. Funeral services will be held at a later date in Maine. Contributions may be made to the Susan Mast ALS Foundation (susanmastals.org) to promote their efforts in providing quality care and support for persons living with ALS and their families, a cause very close to her heart.
