Susan Travis Lapenta LeGallee


Our dear Susie departed this world on April 10 to join her loved ones and her dear Savior in heaven.  Susie was born on February 4, 1947 in Indianapolis, the daughter of Paul and June Travis.  She passed away following a brief bout with cancer at her residence in Lake Forest, California.  She was a 1965 Indianapolis Arlington High school graduate and assisted their reunion team for over 30 years, in charge of locating missing alums of the class.   In that process, so many of the 1963 through 67 alumni came to love Susan for her tireless work, thoughtful kindness and her sparkle and untiring energy.   She established a Facebook group for all of those alums and encouraged their posts about friendships and life.  A memory page on that very Facebook account today offers so many beautiful eulogies for Susie’s caring ways.  During her career, Susie worked for many years in real estate escrow processing.   She loved the simple and beautiful things in life like a special glass of wine with friends, watching the sunset over Balboa Island, and sharing joys and laughter from her gracious sense of humor.  But most of all she loved her family.  Her dear husband, Robert Legallee, preceded her in death.  Susan leaves a close-knit family behind that includes her daughter Elizabeth (Beth) Lapenta, and son, John Lapenta; two grandchildren, Grace Lapenta and Vincent Lapenta; and sisters Nancy Sehnert and Sally Alger.  A gathering honoring her life will be held on June 2, 2018 in California.  If anyone wishes to attend or send wishes and prayers, please call classmate Marvin Bailey for details.
