Originally from Connecticut, Susan moved with her family to Camp Antlers in Oquossoc as a young girl. She attended and graduated from Rangeley High School and the University of Maine with a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. A devoted educator, Susan excelled in her gift of teaching special education in Rangeley, Phillips, and Kingfield schools until her retirement in the early 2000s.
She was a registered Maine Guide with a passion for fly fishing that took her around the world, casting for salmon in the waters of Maine, Alaska, Chile and Coopers’ in Labrador. Beyond the love of family, teaching and fishing, the 35 panoramic years she shared with her husband living on the shores of Mooselookmeguntic Lake, her devoted dogs, and all animals gave her the utmost Joy.
Susan is survived by her high school love and husband of 43 years, Larry Koob of Oquossoc along with their beloved Golden Retriever, Abby; brother, James (Christine) Davenport of Lakewood Ranch, FL sister, Linda (Davenport) McCarroll of Portland; together with extended family members and countless friends.
