Guthwin, Helen Mildred - Virginia Beach  
Helen Mildred Guthwin Virginia Beach - Helen Mildred Guthwin, 95, passed away on May 21, 2015. She was born in Boston, MA on January 1, 1920 to the late Samuel and Anna (Manitoff) Levine. She was preceded in death by her husband, Hyman Guthwin and son Michael Guthwin. For Helen, it was most important to make a contribution, to be useful. She volunteered to organize documents for a judge; she was part of a feed the homeless project and consistently supported numerous charities including a child in Guatemala for many years. Reflecting her many interests and passions, she sang with the Virginia Beach Chorale, participated in the SaiBaba Groups, the Society of Friends, ARE, as well as belonging to a synagogue at one time. In her early years, Helen sang with the City Center Opera Company and became more and more educated with graduate courses as she worked in the New York City Board of Education as a kindergarten teacher and then as a vocational counselor for disadvantaged teens. All her life she was a curious and voracious leader and focused on developing spiritually. She will be dearly missed by her family and her many friends and companions in Virginia Beach who were devoted to and supported her in her declining years. Seeing her great-grandsons, age 2.5 years and 7 months in video and photos in the last month of her life, among the few words she could utter, was "precious". Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Judith Schachter and her husband, Jean-Pierre; son, David Guthwin; grandsons, Theodore, Michael, and Carl; great grandsons Vincent and Isak; and brother, Walter Berkman and his wife, Charlotte. A memorial service will be held Monday, May 25, 2015 at 2:00PM at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5792 Greenwich Rd., Virginia Beach. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.altmeyer.com .

Garthright, Susan S. - Virginia Beach  
Susan S. Garthright Virginia Beach - Susan passed peacefully on Saturday, May 16, 2015, after a valiant struggle with a chronic illness. Her husbands, Larry E. Twiford and William E.

She is survived by her sister-in-law, Nancy Snyder of Waynesboro, three nephews, Jeff Snyder and Chris Snyder of Glen Allen, John Snyder of Haymarket, one niece, Annette Snyder Peterson of Great Falls, Montana, and 10 great nieces and nephews. Susan was born in Richmond, Virginia on October 11, 1937 to Frederick and Margaret (Chamberlain) Snyder. She had some wonderful years in New York until she was called home to care for her ailing parents, first her mother and later, her father. After that she made her home in Virginia Beach. She was as active in her church as her health permitted, and loved participating in the Potter's House, Congregational Care, counting money, Seasoned Energetic Adults, and the Sallie Brown Circle. She wrote notes of encouragement to many who will remember her beautiful penmanship and caring words. Susan asked to be remembered as generous, kind, and forthright; with a smile and sense of humor. Her faith uplifted her and became her source of strength and hope. A memorial service will be 11am, Thursday, June 4, 2015 at Virginia Beach United Methodist Church, 212 19th St, Va. Beach, 23451. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the church in her name.
