Suzanne (Rembis) Lenk, 90, of Bristol, beloved wife of John Lenk, died on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2018, at Bristol Hospital.
Suzanne was born in New Britain on Nov. 21, 1927, and was the daughter of the late Adam and Eve (Pelka) Rembis. She was raised in New Britain and moved to Bristol when she married. After graduating high school she worked several years for Southern New England Telephone as a telephone operator. In her early years she was athletic; she was an avid tennis player and even taught her husband how to fish. She met her beloved husband after a tennis match with his sister.
Suzanne was devoted to her family and enjoyed holiday picnics, playing cards and Sunday rides. She also enjoyed spending time at the family cottage on Cape Cod with her husband, John.
Suzanne resided at The Pines nursing home for the last few years. Her family wishes to express their gratitude and appreciation for the compassionate and loving care she received from all the staff members. Suzanne’s daily visits from her husband and their beloved dog, Daisy, added much joy to the lives of the residents and staff as well. After 66 years of marriage, they truly were soul mates.
In addition to her husband, Suzanne is survived by her two sons, Damon Lenk and his wife, Dorothy, of Bristol and Ronald Lenk of Wolcott; her daughter, Rebecca Lenk of Madison; two grandchildren, Aurora Suzanne Lenk, John Lenk; and several nieces and nephews.
