Auburn - Susan M. (Cencak) Saster, age 62 of Auburn passed away at home on Jan. 30, 2018 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Susan was surrounded by her loving family at the time of her passing.

     She is survived by her beloved husband Frank; son Mario, and his children Angelina and Dylan; her sister Mary and husband Neal Riley of Millbury; and her nephew and niece, Neal and Lani Riley. She was predeceased by her mother and father, Kyoko and Albert Cencak.

     Susan grew up in Whitinsville, MA. She graduated from Northbridge High School, and from Bryant College of Rhode Island with a medical secretarial degree. She worked for Doctor Barron of Worcester, and for the Reliant Medical Group for 25 years in Auburn and Millbury. She always had a smile and a joke for her beloved co-workers.

     Susan had a variety of interests and talents. She enjoyed cross-stitching, even winning awards for her intricate work. Susan also crocheted and knit beautiful pieces for family and friends. She was an avid reader of many genres, with a fondness for Steven King novels. Susan was a master of jigsaw and crossword puzzles, and had a passion for cooking. She loved traveling to Maine and to Cape Cod. She also enjoyed the occasional lucky junket to Foxwoods with her sister and brother-in-law. Though not popular with everyone in her extended family, Susan and her son were fervent fans of the New York Yankees. She would often be seen wearing her Yankees’ cap.

     Susan forever touched all those who came to know her. We hope she is now at peace.

Frank, Mario, and family,
I can't even begin to express my sadness over losing Sue. She was such a kind, funny, beautiful soul. She really touched my heart my years working with her. She always had a good book, movie, or recipe recommendation. She had such a love for all of you, and for life itself. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

Frank, Mario, Mary and Neil - I cannot believe that Sue is gone. I actually have been searching for her on Facebook without success for a while. I am out of state right now and feel so devastated that I can't be there to share her life with you. Wish I could be there to express my heartfelt sorrow. I loved Sue so much as well as her family. We grew up as best firiends and were like sisters through high school and college. It's like losing a part of me. Mom used to always talk with her at the clinic and tell me how she was doing. I will pray for peace and comfort for all left behind. If you have a chance could you contact me me through Facebook so I can talk to you after all is over. Love to all of you. Maryann Sohigian Teixeira. Amen.

Frank, Mario, Mary and Neal,
I am so sorry for your loss. Susan was a remarkable person and I was very fortunate to have known her. She was such an avid reader and she knew about all the latest books. I enjoyed talking about them with her. It's not surprising that she was in a profession where she helped people.

My sympathy to you and your extended family at the passing of your wife, Susan. As my wife, Elaine, has been gone less than two years, I know the range of emotions that you are feeling at this time. I hope that you will find some solace in knowing that Susan's suffering has ended.

Elaine and Susan were neighbors in New Village. I remember Elaine saying that the Cencaks were good folks.

My best to you, Jerome

I just heard the terrible news of Sue’s passing. Although I had not seen Sue for quite some time, I remember her as a sweet and kind person.

Frank and family, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you.
