SUSAN ELAINE MULLIN

Obituary Condolences

MULLIN SUSAN ELAINE
42, passed away on Monday, April 22, 2013, after a strong, valiant battle with breast cancer. She was the beloved daughter of Charles S. Mullin and the late Judith Noble Mullin; much-loved sister of Robert S. Mullin (Brooke); very special aunt of Abigail and Sean Mullin; and cherished niece of Lewis and Linda Jones. She is also survived by many loving cousins. After graduating from Hampton High School, Susan was awarded the Julia Parker Shaeffer Scholarship to Randolph-Macon Women's College. While there, she was elected to membership in the Phi Beta Kappa Society and was the first student to ever graduate with double honors in two unrelated disciplines, Economics and English Literature. Susan worked on Wall Street for 13 years as a bond analyst and vice-president for Moody Investor Services. She also was part of a program that taught math to middle school students in the New York City Public Schools. Later, pursuing her passion for classical Chinese medicine and acupuncture, she graduated from the American Institute of Alternative Medicine and received her Doctorate Degree in Medical Qigong. Refusing to yield to cancer, and just prior to her death, Susan was accepted into Chatham University's Master of Fine Arts program in creative writing. Susan Mullin was a seeker. She loved the thrill of open-ended learning, intelligent discourse, and garnering knowledge. Her unique view of the world encompassed and charmed her family and friends, colleagues and neighbors, well-wishers, and the forgotten. Books were her pleasure, as well as quirky movies and her beloved dog, Schatzi. Susan was loving, self-reliant, fair-minded, elusive, spiritual, and thoughtful. Her smile cheered the world, her mind was delightfully clever, and her creativity was boundless. She frequently took the road "less traveled" and that has made all the difference to those who know her and loved her. At an appropriate time, the family plans to hold a memorial honoring and celebrating Susan's life. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Pittsburgh Chapter of Hackers for Hope at www.hackersforhope.org. Hackers for Hope supports Cancer research.
