Known to all as Susie, she was a lover of life, a foodie, a terrific cook, avid reader, and a trusted friend to so many regardless of age or station in life. She enjoyed living near the coast, sailing on Long Island Sound, traveling throughout the United States and Europe, and spending time with her extended family. She was a lifelong student who passionately attended continuing education classes, lectures, and cultural events. Susie was a great listener and conversationalist who always put others first. She found the good in everyone whom she met. Susie was an inspiration to all as she optimistically engaged in activities and outings. Susie's love for life and family was evident in all that she did.
