I grieve with her husband and family.  Susan was a stunningly beautiful woman I knew in the late 60's  She was always most gracious and warm.  GB is a fearsome foe.  I grieve.

So very sad to learn of Sue's passing. I didn't know her well, but remember her as a kind, warm, and lively woman.  My condolences to all her loved ones.

Many years after graduation, I still cherish the memory of Susan as an important friend in college.  She was lovely, lively, smart, fun and such a warm and caring person. We lived on the same floor in our dormitory and ate together, shared many late night birthday parties, and had serious discussions about relationships and life. Reading about her life over the past several decades, I can see how she continued to bring her special light to the many people in her life-- her family, friends, and clients.  To the many people who she loved and who loved her-- may you be comforted by her memory and all the good she did in this world.  Treasure (Levin) Cohen
