Deceased Name: Suzanne Verdery, former resident
Suzanne Aldrich Verdery, a former Ridgefielder who was the widow of a longtime headmaster of The Wooster School, died Nov. 20 in her home in Camden, Maine. She was 83 years old.
Mrs. Verdery was born on Nov. 8, 1920 in Fall River, Mass., the daughter of The Right Rev. Donald B. Aldrich and Frances Learned Aldrich. She graduated from Wellesley College with a bachelor's degree in history and married The Rev. John D. Verdery in 1942.
Mr. Verdery, who died in 1985, had been the headmaster of The Wooster School in Danbury from 1943 until 1976. The Verderys lived on Ridgebury Road for many years.
"A voluptuary whose passion for good food, wine, merriment and the grace of laughter, she was an exemplar of what it means to live well on earth," her family said.
"Few women are as liberated from the bounds of their sex, the restrictions of motherhood, the etiquette of table and parlor, the confusions of the church, and the will of God as Suzanne Verdery was," her family said. "And few - men or women - are as specifically proud of their sex, mindful of their parenthood, devoted to the common sense of courtesy, meaningful in their worship and obedient to The Word as she was."
Mrs. Verdery is survived by her four childrenand six grandchildren.
A burial service will take place at the Dennis Village Cemetery, Dennis, Mass., Monday, Dec. 29.
