Susan Cluthe Douglas

AGE: 77 • Atlantic Highlands

Susan Cluthe Douglas died peacefully at her home on October 31, 2016, following a long illness. She is survived by her children: Jennifer Elgrim and husband Gary, of Middletown; Kelly Douglas and fiance Ken Duckworth, M.D. of Boston; Brian Douglas and his wife, Jen, of Ocean Township; her beloved grandchildren (Matt and Sarah Elgrim of Middletown; Owen and Brooks Gillespie of Boston, and Jaclyn and Tyler Douglas of Ocean Township), and many beloved extended family members and friends. She was predeceased by her loving parents, Virginia and Herbert F. Cluthe, Sr., and much adored brothers, Herbert F. (Rick) Cluthe, Jr. and Peter Cluthe. She is survived by bonus sister, Lissa Anderson and husband Andy, and extended family.

Sue lived on the Jersey shore for over 40 years. She was born in Montclair, NJ and spoke often of her fun childhood with her brothers and memorable summers spent on Shelter Island, NY. She loved to sail, play tennis, spend time at any body of water, and tend to her gardens. Her enjoyment of football and golf was legendary, as was the affection she felt for black labs and the music of Streisand and Sinatra. A private celebration of Sue's life will be held in January. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Sue's memory to the Shelter Island Historical Society (call 631-749-0025 and ask for Alexandra).
