It is with immense sadness that the family of Dr. Suzanne Hebert Imondi announces her passing on May 30, 2012, after a seven-year battle with breast cancer. She was 47 years old. Her life, though cut too short, was filled with love, kindness and an incredible quiet strength. She leaves behind her devoted husband of almost 20 years, Dr. David M. Imondi and her beloved children, Grace (age 11) and Dominic (age 9). Dr. Hebert Imondi was born in Corning, NY on April 25, 1965 to Dr. Normand Hebert and the late Therese Hebert. She was raised in Goffstown, NH. Dr. Hebert Imondi was a graduate of Goffstown High School. She received AB in Biology from Smith College in 1987 and a Doctorate of Optometry from the New England College of Optometry in 1991. She was a staff optometrist with Medical West Eye Associates in Chicopee, MA and later with Surgical and Medical Eye Associates of Manchester, CT. After being diagnosed with Stage Four Breast Cancer in 2004, Dr. Hebert Imondi left her profession and focused on advocacy and education for fellow patients with metastatic breast cancer. She became vice president of Metastatic Breast Cancer Network, a national patient advocacy group dedicated to the unique concerns of patients living with metastatic breast cancer. Her valiant battle with cancer and her national accomplishments in cancer advocacy have been featured in the New York Times, ABC Nightly News, Wall Street Journal and Cancer Today magazine. She was the winner of the 2011 National Ladies Home Journal Power of Ten Award, which recognizes women who have made a difference in their community. In addition, she was a volunteer at St. James School in Manchester and was the St. James School HSA secretary. In addition to her husband and children, Dr. Hebert Imondi leaves her father, Dr. Normand C. Hebert, her sister Michele Becker and her husband Dr. Gil Becker, brothers Marc Hebert and his wife Kelly Hebert and Dr. Daniel Hebert and his wife Leah. She leaves her nieces Jenna Tramonti, Krista Tramonti and Shannon Hebert and nephews Dylan Hebert and Harrison Hebert. She also leaves her father-in-law Harold Imondi and sister and brother-in-law Lynn and Richard Tramonti. She was recently preceded by her mother Therese Hebert and mother-in-law Rita Imondi, two women who she loved immensely. She also leaves her lovable golden doodle George. The family would like to thank all who loved and supported Suzanne through her long illness. We also thank the entire St. James School staff and families especially Suzanne's dear friends Susan Bushman, Linda Carpenter and Beth Holcomb. A special thanks to Suzanne's medical team. First and foremost to Dr. Pat Defusco who has been Suzanne's guardian angel throughout her illness. Thank you also to Ashley and the nurses at CB2, and Jen and the nurses at the Wethersfield Infusion Center. In Suzanne, we have lost a beautiful soul who quietly and gracefully changed the world and she will never be forgotten. Contributions in Suzanne's memory may be sent to Metastatic Breast Cancer Network P.O. Box 1449 New York, NY 10159. Family and friends may gather, Monday June 4th at 9 a.m. at the Samsel & Carmon Funeral Home, 419 Buckland Road, South Windsor, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. at St. James Church, 896 Main St. in Manchester, CT. Her family will receive friends Sunday from 2-5 p.m. at the funeral home. For online expressions of sympathy, (a video tribute will be available on Saturday) please visit us at
