Former Longtime Greenport and East Marion resident Susan Elizabeth Long of Dexter, Maine, died July 8 in Bangor, Maine. She was 65.
The daughter of Edward Edwin Kart and Benedicta Gertrude Binkis Kart, she was born June 6, 1952, at Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport and graduated from Greenport High School.
Susan was a woman of strong faith and her love of God shined through her. She was kindhearted, sweet and giving. She had a love for life and spent most of her years caring for and giving selflessly to all in need.
