In Loving Memory of Virginia Menschner  – 
Virginia Menschner Village ClerkThe Village of Suffern is deeply saddened by the passing of our Village Clerk, Virginia Menschner on October 24, 2018.  Virginia started her career in the Village on May 4, 1958, with over 60 years of service spanning many administrations.  At the Village Hall are hundreds of files, some handwritten, some typed using an old underwood typewriter, and some using an IBM Selectric.  In this wide array of decades of information, there are pages that stand out and they are written in the beautiful script penmanship of Virginia Menschner. Throughout her career, Virginia warmly touched the lives of all our residents, signing over 100,000 birth certificates; celebrating each birth with love and joy.

With diligence and proficiency, Virginia served under the administrations of thirteen Mayors and was responsible for the smooth running of daily operations. Along with the numerous awards and recognitions she has received from the New York State Conference of Mayors and other notable organizations, a Pink Weeping Cherry Tree was planted on the lawn of the Village Hall in honor of Virginia’s contributions.  A plaque sits beneath this beautiful tree that will forever remind us of a woman of strength, courage, and dedication to her community.  Though we weep for the loss of our dear Virginia, she remains with us through the reports and files handwritten in the epitome of the Palmer Method of penmanship.  They will forever speak to us with the clarity, precision, and beauty of the woman who wrote them. On behalf of the Village Board and the Village Staff, we say goodbye and extend our deepest sympathies to the devoted family that she so dearly loved.
